Microsoft is plumbing the depths of cloud computing yet again with the development of what could be a pay-per-use desktop virtualization service called Mohoro. According to ZDNet‘s Mary Jo Foley, Mohoro is essentially Azure‘s answer to Remote Desktop, but as a hosted service. Intended for “companies who want thin clients or to run legacy apps on new PCs,” her source states that, “With Mohoro, you click a few buttons, deploy your apps, use Intune to push out configuration to all of your company’s devices, and you’re done,” thus skipping the need for server infrastructure. As Foley points out, however, Azure-hosted virtual machines aren’t currently set up to run Windows clients under Microsoft’s licensing terms. What’s more, Mohoro development is reportedly in its early days, and as such, Foley speculates that it won’t be a reality until much later — she’s guessing the latter half of 2014.
