MSIX app attach is an Azure Virtual Desktop feature.
It provides application modernization, improves application lifecycle management, and reduces hardware footprint and IT management overhead by using fewer templates.
Parallels RAS brings MSIX app attach technology to RDSH, VDI, and Azure Virtual Desktop. As a result, application packages can be (re)used in any on-premises, hybrid, or cloud scenario.
This enables administrators to dynamically add and remove apps without installing such applications on the desktop image or the Parallels RAS template.
Beyond basic MSIX app attach management, capabilities previously introduced in Parallels RAS, such as package version management and package certificate management, also apply to the MSIX app attach integration for Azure Virtual Desktop.
Parallels RAS also takes care of the certificate management part and has version tagging integrated.
