Microsoft Windows MultiPoint Server

Microsoft Windows MultiPoint Server is a shared resource computing solution that enables hosting for multiple simultaneous independent computing stations or terminals connected to a single computer.

The host computer runs the Windows MultiPoint Server software, while access devices connect the host computer to the individual stations, allowing multiple people to share the same computer while having their own independent computing experience.

MultiPoint Server was originally designed as a way for educational institutions to take advantage of lower cost terminals, but attracted retail and small to medium size businesses as well.

As of Windows Server 2016 MultiPoint Server will no longer be offered as a standalone product and will be replaced by the MultiPoint Services Role.
