Azure RemoteApp provides Desktop Apps on a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) on Azure. RemoteApp allows administrators to enable applications such as Office on a Windows Server, which is deployed and runs in Azure data centers. This gives users access to Windows desktop applications from devices such as iPads without requiring on-premises VDI, which many people have not invested in due to huge deployment and support costs.

The service does not offer a full Windows Experience, more that of an RDS function. The service is currently limited in the number of users per tenant that it supports, although this technology is bound to spark further investment over time.

At present a trial copy of Office 2013 Professional Plus is available through an eval of RemoteApp, the Office 365 ProPlus subscription suite will be supported in production deployments of the service, also ADFS is available to allow single sign on.

Two flavours are currently available under a monthly per-user subscription. Basic is aimed at lightweight use, basic web apps etc, whilst Standard is aimed at more business apps such as Office 365 Pro. This is determined by the compute capacity of the Azure VM.

Basic and Standard both provide every licensed user 40 hours of Azure RemoteApp per month, additional hours incur charges, with a maximum of 80 hours the user has unlimited access for the rest of the month.
