The Remote Desktop Services (previously known as Terminal Services) component of the Microsoft Windows Server operating system can deliver the Windows desktop and applications to virtually any computer, including mobile devices.
When a user runs an application on Remote Desktop Services (RDS), all of the application execution, such as MS Office, takes place on the server and only the keyboard, mouse and display information are transmitted over the network. There is no need for a user PC in the office as this product is not based on remote control, but instead a secure independent session running on the server.
Why use RDS in your organisation?
- Quicker more reliable remote access even over slow connections such as 3G
- Access all applications including databases without transferring data outside
of your network
- Centralised deployment and management of applications
- Simplifies application support
- Windows-based PCs, Apple Mac, Smart-phones and Tablets
- Easy reconnection with no loss of data should link be interrupted
- Secured via virtual private network (VPN) or secured socket layer (SSL)
