Azure Remote Apps for Office365 users


Microsoft Azure RemoteApp delivers your Windows applications from the Azure cloud. It brings the Azure cloud benefits of scale, agility and global access to corporate applications.

Azure RemoteApp scales up or down without expensive capital expenditure or management complexity to meet the dynamic needs of your business. The pricing model of the service is designed with the same flexibility:

  • Azure RemoteApp is priced per user and is billed on a monthly basis.
  • The service is offered in two tiers: Basic and Standard. Basic is designed for lighter weight applications (e.g. for task workers). Standard is designed for information workers to run productivity applications.
  • Pricing: Each service has a starting price per user that includes 40 hours of service per user. Thereafter, a per hour charge is applied for each user hour up to a capped price per user. You will not pay for any additional usage beyond the capped price in a given month.
Run Windows applications anywhere

Azure RemoteApp helps employees stay productive anywhere, and on a variety of devices – Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, or Android. Your company’s applications run on Windows Server in the Azure cloud, where they’re easier to scale and update. Employees install Microsoft Remote Desktop clients on their Internet-connected laptop, tablet, or phone—and can then access applications as if they were running locally.

There are two kinds of RemoteApp collections:

  • A cloud collection is hosted in and stores all data for programs in the Azure cloud. Users can access apps by logging in with their Microsoft account or corporate credentials synchronized or federated with Azure Active Directory.
  • A hybrid collection is hosted in and stores data in the Azure cloud but also lets users access data and resources stored on your local network. Users can access apps by logging in with their corporate credentials synchronized or federated with Azure Active Directory.
