Windows Remote Desktop Services Overview
Remote Desktop Services (RDS), formerly known as Terminal Services, is the remote desktop solution for Windows devices offered by Washington-based tech giant, Microsoft. RDS is a set of features within Microsoft’s Windows Server that enables users to remotely access desktops, applications, and virtual machines. While RDS only enables users to access devices running Windows, they can do so from Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android client devices that support Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). The solution can be deployed on-prem via Windows Server 2016 and in the Microsoft Azure cloud.
