ThinPrint, a selected launch partner for Windows Virtual Desktop, has announced details of its print solution designed specifically for Windows 10 multi-session desktops hosted on Azure.
General availability of Windows Virtual Desktop, its comprehensive service for cloud-based desktop and app virtualisation is currently expected for July. Windows 10 multi-user is optimised for Office 365 and will be offered exclusively via the Azure Cloud.
A secure and easy-to-use service that perfectly integrates with Windows Virtual Desktops is essential to enable users to connect local printers with Windows Virtual Desktop, support printing for mobile and home office employees as well as manage print environments and policies. ThinPrint will soon offer a version of its ezeep cloud printing product, fully optimised for printing Windows Virtual Desktop. This can be simply installed via the Azure Marketplace and is immediately available to the entire organisation thanks to the seamless integration with Azure Active Directory. The printers are connected via the ezeep connector and network printers can be quickly and easily integrated with the ezeep hub. The solution establishes a secure connection to its print service without the need for a VPN. Administrators can centrally manage print settings via a clear web console with users having the option to make specific settings via an intuitive self-service portal.
