Key Windows Server 2008 R2 features: Remote Desktop Services

Microsoft did more than just change Terminal Services' name -- it revamped the product. See why Remote Desktop Services is on our list of top 10 features in Windows Server 2008 R2.


#1: Remote Desktop Services

Remote Desktop Services

You say tomato, we say Terminal Services. The name change with R2 is appropriate considering RDS' big bang feature – Remote Desktop Virtualization. In fact, pretty much nothing is known by the same name anymore (even a Terminal Server is now called a Remote Desktop Session Host).

Enough with the redubs, though. Built on a VDI infrastructure, RDS brings with it a host of enhancements like fair share CPU scheduling and the Remote Desktop Connection Broker. There's a lot more, too (but we just don't have the space to list them all).
