Access a TSE session on O365 SharePoint Online to access and manipulate data directly RRS feed

  • Question

  • From Certipaq (@Certipaq) via Twitter:

    Originally the customer tweeted us with:

    "Hi, We're a Office365 E3 Plan customer. We've got few solutions as Sharepoint online but it's kind of slow. Can we deploy virtual session (Citrix, TSE/RDP) on Azure platform to remotely access in fastest way our SharePoint data ? As it's all hosted on the same Microsoft location, it could be easier and faster for us. Thank you"

    We recommended the customer to the documentation on http://aka.ms/d793941.

    The customer replied and confirmed:

    "Thanks ! Looks faster alright. Can we also access a TSE session on our O365 SharePoint Online service ? We will then be able to access and manipulate directly our data without downloading them on our laptops. Thanks "

    Appreciate if you can advise the customer further on this

  • O365 doesn't run RDS, of course. They can access O365 from an RDS session running on an IaaS VM that they own in Azure, in the same data center. That's the best they'll be able to do.

    They may also want to review:
