Wow I can’t believe I have been at this for 20 days!  Tonight I am learning Remote Desktop Services. I have learned some cool new facts about RDS in 2012.  Let me share some of the things I have seen tonight:

  • Active/Active RD Connection Broker - Yes that’s right now all pieces have high availability
  • Fareshare of Resources (CPU, Network, I/O) – Yup, now no single user can hog all the resources
  • A single management interface in Server Manager for all services
  • Well, two management interfaces we also support Powershell
  • CPU based or Physical support for Remote FX GPU
  • User Profile Disk – This is a VHD to store the user’s Desktop and files

There are Tons of resources on this topic!  I listed some below that I used to study with:

  • Has the RDS licensing changed in Windows 2012 from Windows 2008 R2?

    Do you still need RDS (with a Remote Desktop License Server) and Windows Client Access License (CAL). Are there any other licenses required?
