Technical Overview of Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services
Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services (RDS) enables organizations of all sizes to provide user access to Windows-based applications and desktops stored on a remote computer over a network. With RDS, only the User Interface (UI) of an application or remote desktop is presented on the client computer. Any input to it is redirected over the network to the RDS server back end, where all processing occurs. This technical white paper discusses the features, benefits, and usage scenarios for RDS and is intended for server administrators who are already familiar with RDS as well as those server administrators who want to learn more about Microsoft's desktop and presentation virtualization technologies.
