Run big unattended automation jobs across multiple VMs dynamically at scale, with the new Azure Virtual Desktop integration starter kit. Ashvini Sharma, from the Power Automate engineering team, joins host Jeremy Chapman to share recent updates to Power Automate such as the addition of dynamically, scalable unattended Robotic Process Automation (RPA). Power Automate flows can run in a virtual machine using an automation account, and that VM doesn't need to be constantly running. It can wake up, run your automation, and then stop on a schedule.

Use the Azure Virtual Desktop integration starter kit to run large-scale automations and scale out the number of virtual machines to distribute your flows across multiple computers. Once the automation is complete, it can shut down your VMs, so you don't have to pay for idle compute.
