Microsoft snaps up FSLogix to give Office 365 virtualization a boost
The acquisition, Microsoft says, will enhance Office 365 virtualization with faster profile load times and more.
Microsoft today announced that it has acquired FSLogix, a company focused on reducing the resources and labor involved in supporting virtualization. The goal, Microsoft says, is to use FSLogix's expertise to improve performance for businesses using Azure's Office 365 virtualization.
Tapping into FSLogix's work should also reduce the support load on IT departments. All of this will come together with Windows Virtual Desktop, which Microsoft launched in September as a Microsoft 365 service that lets businesses deploy virtual desktops on Azure.
