New purchases of Azure RemoteApp ended October 1st, 2016, so where do you go if you need RemoteApp hosting? For the time being Microsoft will continue to support existing Azure RemoteApp customers on the service through August 31st, 2017, when the service will be shutdown – but then what?
For those unaware, Microsoft Azure RemoteApp brought the functionality of the on-premises Microsoft RemoteApp program, backed by Remote Desktop Services, to Azure. Azure RemoteApp helps you provide secure, remote access to applications from many different user devices. Azure RemoteApp hosted non-persistent Terminal Server sessions in the cloud. This technology is very similar to our long offered Remote Desktop Hosting Services. It is the same basic technology stack but RemoteApp direclty launches a specific application rather than a full windows virtual environment. We have already been contacted by a lot of Azure RemoteApp customers and are happy to report that we are happy to offer a hosting alternative to Azure RemoteApp (or the expense of Citrix). We are happy to announce that we are more than capable of creating an RDP RemoteApp server for your business needs. We believe that we can offer low-cost hosting plans for remoteApps of any Microsoft Office programs (including MS Access) and if you’ve developed your own Windows Software or specialized app, we can setup a dedicated Windows RemoteApp Server to host and distribute your software in the cloud.
