Microsoft’s idea of a modern desktop experience is the ability to deploy and run Windows and Office from Azure. Today’s acquisition announcement of FSLogix takes that capability to the next level and will make it more difficult for Windows and Office customers to avoid cloud participation – and ultimately, Azure licensing schemes.
To help extend our virtualization capabilities and provide an even richer experience for Microsoft 365 customers, we are excited to announce the acquisition of FSLogix.
With this acquisition, customers will benefit in a number of ways. Through customer engagement, we know that Microsoft Office applications are some of the most highly used and most commonly virtualized applications in any business. Office 365 ProPlus is currently the best Office experience, and, with FSLogix enabling faster load times for user profiles in Outlook and OneDrive, Office 365 ProPlus will become even more performant in multi-user virtual environments (including Windows Virtual Desktop).
