Hyper-V Amigos Showcast Episode 14: RemoteFX & DDA

Carsten and I dove into our labs and played around with RemoteFX and Discrete Device Assignment in Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V and RDS. This resulted in the Hyper-V Amigos Showcast Episode 14: RemoteFX & DDA.

Some background on RemoteFX & DDA

I’ve discussed the new capabilities in previous blog posts such as https://blog.workinghardinit.work/?s=DDA&submit=Search  and RemoteFX and vGPU Improvements in Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V. But here the Hyper-V Amigos talk about it for your benefit and enjoyment. I for one know we had a ton of fun. Microsoft only VDI solutions are really taking off both on-premises and in Azure in cost conscious environments that still need good performance. I think we’ll see an uptake of such deployments as Microsoft has made some decisions and added some features to make this more feasible.

There’s a bit of a learning curve associated with using DDA in Windows Server 2016. You’ll have to get acquainted with how to do it and put it to the test in labs and POCs. Do this before you even start thinking about designing production ready solutions. Having a good understanding on how it works and behaves is paramount to success.

Enjoy!
