There is a new RDS on Azure learning path for the Cloud Platform competency within the Microsoft Partner Network. The new learning path, called “Hosting Windows Desktop and Applications using Remote Desktop Services in Azure,” includes training videos and an assessment that provides RD-hosting partners with new ways to achieve Silver and Gold levels by deploying RDS on Azure VMs for customers.
As an added benefit, we will publish a list of partners who have passed the RDS on Azure assessment so that customers will be able to quickly find and contact partners who have knowledge and experience hosting Windows desktops and applications in Azure using RDS.
To get started, go to our TechNet page and follow the instructions to register for the Microsoft Partner Network, view the training videos, and take the RDS of Azure assessment.
For related information, please see Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop Services documentation and the RDS Azure Quickstart Templates.
