Windows 2008 Remote Desktop Services CALs
Depending on availability, you may receive this product as a Microsoft Open License. This license will come via email 1-3 business days after your order is placed.
Remote Desktop Services (RDS) makes it possible to run either an application or an entire desktop in one location, but have it be controlled in another. With RDS, you can install and manage session-based desktops and applications, or virtual-machine based desktops on centralized servers in the data center; screen images are delivered to the users, and the users' client machines, in turn, send keystrokes and mouse movements back to the server. When using Remote Desktop Services, administrators can present users with an entire desktop environment, or with their individual applications and data which they require to complete their task. From a user perspective, these applications are integrated seamlessly, as they look, feel, and behave like local applications.
Services in Windows Server 2008 R2 provides
new options for application
deployment, more efficient access to data
over low bandwidth, reuse of older
hardware, remote access, and other tasks.
Please note, Remote Desktop Services CALs
are NOT compatible with Microsoft Small
Business Server. They require
or Enterprise. Windows Server 2008
RDS requires that you
install a license server before the remote
server can function. A license
server is a computer or server on which RDS
Licensing is installed.
