Microsoft’s upcoming Azure service Windows Virtual Desktop not only takes desktop-as-a-service technology to a whole new level, but also places new demands on printing. Because when desktops move to the cloud, every printer becomes a remote printer. An intelligent printing solution is therefore essential.
ThinPrint, the world’s leading provider of print management solutions, could have taken the easy option and recommended its existing on-premises solution – the ThinPrint Engine for Windows 10 Multi-Session, which was completed in September 2018, just as some other market players have been planning so far. But this would not be enough.
The advantages of a cloud desktop such as Windows Virtual Desktop can be experienced above all when all other systems are also available in the cloud. Companies can really benefit from relocating to the cloud, especially with such a complex process as printing. This is why ThinPrint has decided to adapt its cloud printing solution ezeep, which was initially established for the coworking sector, to the requirements of Windows Virtual Desktop.
Fully integrated into the Azure Active Directory and soon available via the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, ezeep not only allows IT administrators to connect their on-premises printer landscape to Windows Virtual Desktop in minutes, but also eliminates the need for local print servers. Printers in branch offices or home offices can also be easily connected to the ezeep cloud in minutes.
We’re proud that Microsoft encourages this approach and that we can count ourselves among the exclusive circle of seven integration partners for Windows Virtual Desktop. ezeep for Azure will also be available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace once Windows Virtual Desktop becomes available.
