Microsoft RD Virtualization Host (Remote Desktop Virtualization Host)

Contributor(s): Tayla Holman

Microsoft RD Virtualization Host (Remote Desktop Virtualization Host) is a Remote Desktop Services role service in Windows Server 2008 R2.

RD Virtualization Host integrates with Hyper-V to provide virtual machines by using Desktop Connection and RemoteApp, which makes programs accessed remotely appear as if they are running on the end user's local computer.

RD Virtualization Host can be configured to assign each user in an organization a unique virtual machine (VM), or to redirect users to a shared VM pool where one is dynamically assigned. If the VM is not turned on, RD Virtualization Host will turn on the VM and then connect the user.
