Windows Virtual Desktop Experience Estimator

Your tool to estimate the quality of the experience your users will receive when connecting to Windows Virtual Desktop

Estimate the connection round trip time (RTT) from your current location, through the Windows Virtual Desktop service, to each Azure region in which you can deploy virtual machines.

The highlighted Azure region is the one with the lowest connection RTT from your current location. The times displayed are estimates intended to help assess end user experience quality for your Windows Virtual Desktop deployment. The actual experience will vary depending on network conditions, end user device, and the configuration of the deployed virtual machines.
