Windows Server 8 Preview

8/10

Remote Desktop Services

A further piece in Microsoft’s cloud strategy is VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure). Windows Server 8 supports three kinds of virtual desktop. These are a Remote Desktop Session Host, using sessions on a Windows Server; Pooled Virtual Desktop, in which users access a Hyper-V virtual machine but with roaming profiles, and Personal Virtual Desktop, in which each user has a dedicated virtual machine. In the first two cases, new user state storage enables better performance and richer personalisation than in previous versions.
