WHAT ARE REMOTE DESKTOP SERVICES?A way to leverage your workloads, reduce costs and save time.

Remote Desktop and RemoteApp can help businesses reduce costs and save time. In a few words, Remote Desktop enables you to connect to a session-based desktop using an Internet connection from virtually any computer, tablet, or smartphone. The computer you access is located on a cloud server, in your provider’s datacenter. You can install multiple desktops on one cloud server to reduce your management tasks and improve your efficiency.

RD Session Host

Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) enables a server to host RemoteApp programs or session-based desktops. Sizing for your Remote Desktop hosts is critical and often the source of issues in projects.

RD Licensing

Remote Desktop Licensing (RD Licensing) manages the licenses required to connect to a Remote Desktop Session Host server.

RD Web Access

Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access) enables users to access RemoteApp and Desktop Connections through the Start menu, or through a web browser.

RD Gateway

Remote Desktop Gateway (RD Gateway) enables authorized users to connect to RemoteApp programs, and session-based desktops on an internal corporate network from any Internet-connected device.

RD Connection Broker

Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RD Connection Broker) enables you to evenly distribute the load among RD Session Host servers in a session collection or pooled virtual desktops in a pooled virtual desktop collection.

User Profile Disk

User profile disks centrally store user and application data on a single virtual disk dedicated to one user’s profile. It is attached to the user’s session at logon and detached at logout. With this process, there is no copying of files at logon or logoff.

Why use RemoteApp?reduce complexity and administrative overhead

RemoteApp makes it possible to access applications that are installed on a cloud server from an end-user device using Remote Desktop Services (RDS). These applications, referred to as RemoteApp programs, execute in the server but appear as if they are running on the device. Instead of being presented to the user in the desktop of the RD Session Host, the RemoteApp program is integrated with the client’s desktop. The RemoteApp program runs in its own resizable window and can be dragged between multiple monitors. It also has its own entry in the taskbar.

Consider RemoteApps for the following scenarios:

  • Branch offices, where there may be limited local IT support and limited network bandwidth
  • Situations where users need to access programs remotely
  • Deployment of line-of-business (LOB) programs, especially custom LOB programs
  • Environments, such as “hot desk” or “hoteling” workspaces, where users do not have assigned computers
  • Deployment of multiple versions of a program, particularly if installing multiple versions locally would cause conflicts
