Windows Remote Desktop Services (RDS) Architecture
Posted by Brajesh Panda on February 26, 2010
As per my understanding to run this exercise you need Windows RDS CALs. Windows RDS CALs includes Terminal Services (TS) CAL, VDI CAL & App-V for TS CAL
For Client Virtual Machines you need CALs under Microsoft VECD Program.
You can purchase licenses in below methods;
– Windows 2008 R2 + RDS CAL
– Windows 2008 R2 + RDS CAL + Specific Management Software like SCCM, SCOM, SCVMM
– Windows 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services Standard Suite
– Windows 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services Enterprise Suite
Due to integrated Terminal Services this offering looks me pretty interesting. Would like to see how it works? Specially the performance of RDP 6.1/7 over WAN
If you have already started doing POC please post me with your findings!!
