Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop Services (RDS) are the successor to the legacy Terminal Server CALs. RDS is a centralized desktop and application platform that provides you with a variety of options for delivering and managing desktops and connecting remote workers through session virtualization and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) technologies. This allows you to increase flexibility and data security in the enterprise through a centralized desktop solution, while relieving your IT department of the burden of managing desktops and applications.

Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop Services (RDS)
RDS provide a simple way to give employees in your organization a secure way to access company data. Replacing previous terminal servers, Remote Desktop Services offer centralized virtualization using Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) technology. This means that your IT department only needs to maintain one server. It is possible to create different profiles for different users on the Microsoft server; these are then displayed depending on the user's license. The users start a normal Windows on their computers, but all data is on the server. The users log in to this server via a program and see a Standard desktop as it is available on the server. From this point on, the user works only in this virtual environment, without any data being transferred from the server to the user's computer. Customer data no longer needs to be stored on the user's computer, which is always a risk, but is only kept on the server and the user can see it via virtualization. If there is a problem in the environment, the entire IT department does not have to be called out or other resources blocked. Since it is only a virtual environment, the problem only needs to be fixed on the server. When users log back in, they all see the updated, error-free interface without having to wait any longer. There is also less risk that software updates (including Windows itself) can cause problems. Windows Remote Desktop Services offers little attack surface, since only one environment needs to be maintained for many employees, reducing the effort and making everyone's work more efficient.
The remote desktop session host to which a connection is made decides for each user whether a license is needed to view the virtual desktop and if so, what license. It requests the license and once a user or device license is handed over, the user can start working.
Buy license on user or device basis?
The license models are as flexible as you need them to be. If your employees are often on the road or work with different devices, a user-CAL, i.e. a user-based license, is a good choice. For shared computers, where several users share a PC, or if only one device is used per user, you should rather opt for a Device-CAL, i.e. a device-based license. If you are not sure which is the best model for you, just contact our support. Our service staff will be happy to help you. We will calculate the more favorable model for you, because maybe a mixture of licenses makes sense. Depending on how the different departments in your company work, it might be better to have user-based licenses in one place and device-based licenses in another.
Microsoft Remote Desktop Services 2012 R2 Device CAL
The device license offered here entitles a PC to connect to the Microsoft server and thus use the services provided there. If your users are dealing with particularly sensitive data, virtualization of the desktop is a good idea. In this way, each user works in a protected environment and the administration relieves your IT department.
If you need a user license, you can find the solution here.

Buy Device CAL or User CAL for Windows RDS Server?
If you want to buy a CAL for your Windows RDS Server, you have the choice between the Device-CAL and the User-CAL. As the name suggests, the Device-CAL is assigned to a device, while the User-CAL is a personal license. The Device-CAL is advantageous for companies whose employees only work from one workstation or with one PC, or even share a PC with several employees. The User-CAL, on the other hand, is suitable for employees who work from different locations or with different devices and who need to be connected to the network with each device.
