Support for Windows 7 SP1 will expire in January 2017. However, Microsoft offers enterprise customers the option of continuing to use Windows 7 via Windows Virtual Desktop on Microsoft Azure.
I had reported about the extension of Windows 7 support for enterprises within my blog post Wow! Windows 7 get extended support until January 2023. But companies can also run Windows 7 on Microsoft Azure and then deploy a Windows Virtual Desktop for users.
Excited about Windows Virtual Desktop yet? Allow multiple users to connect concurrently, continue to run Windows 7 if you need to, and benefit from 3 years of Extended Security Updates with this new remote desktop solution on Azure: https://t.co/in8eoXz2Kp pic.twitter.com/hLM73Y5fD5

The tweet above refers to a YouTube video on this topic. It’s a presentation from Ignite 2018. Maybe of interest for one or the other admin.
