Whether you are accessing Azure through WVD, RDS or Citrix, the MyCloudIT cost optimization platform will save you considerable Azure dollars per month.

We all know that Microsoft is making a large and concerted push to get every company/ entity into Azure. One of the main vehicles for this push is going to be the Windows Virtual Desktop product introduced a couple of years ago. This blog gives you a solid baseline on how you can both save monies on your Azure spend and continue to offer the same great service and support you have always delivered to your customers.

Windows Virtual Desktop, Why is it Important?

The feature set of Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) and    the continued need to work from anywhere is ideal match for any company or entity in the cloud today. Inclusively,

Microsoft is now heavily incenting the move to WVD through licensing and other marketing programs. There are a number of benefits with WVD that would include increased security layers, Microsoft infrastructure, and functionality are great benefits, however, there's the underlying concern about cost about ongoing WVD operating costs.

Right Sizing and Autoscaling will Drive a Gross Margin Advantage

Again, whether your customers are accessing Azure with RDS, WVD or even Citrix, there is always surprises when you receive your complex Azure invoice. However, there are great solutions that have been developed to bring sanity to your Azure spend and have a view into how to increase your gross margins per client and make sense of your invoice(s) going forward.

By including and implementing a rightsizing and autoscaling feature set from the beginning, dramatically solves this issue, and provides more margin and knowledge for your business. The MyCLoudlT platform enables the tech team, Finance and even your other C-Suite team members the ability to graphically view and better manage your Microsoft Azure spend.

MyCloudlT delivers the most streamlined and simplified management and cost optimization Azure platform in the industry and will allow you to provide these benefits across your environment and for all your clients.

Your margins are now always under your control, and with the implementation of rightsizing and autoscaling, you'll see a significant increase in profitability by client and your ability to track and report on that. By optimizing from the initial implementation of client's infrastructures in Azure, you'll see these savings right from the start.
