FSLogix and Microsoft – When and How!

Since Microsoft acquired FSLogix in November there has been some uncertainty regarding licenses and most importantly when it will be available through Microsoft.

Ever since Microsoft acquired FSLogix there has not been much information about whats happening. We know Microsoft had their eyes on Office 365 container solution and potentially Profile containers as well, but what will happened with the rest of the suite, such as App Masking and Java Redirection? Will they disappear or will they continue the support and development of the entire suite?

When Microsoft released their new Windows Virtual Desktop to Public Preview and at the same time their intention with the FSLogix Suite!

As you now probably are aware about, FSLogix will be a part of the Windows Virtual Desktop, but it does not stop there, see below on when you are entitled to use FSLogix suite.
