Windows Remote Desktop Services 2008
RDS User CALs with Same Day Deliver
Using Remote Desktop Services with Windows Server 2008 R2 opens a whole range of deployment scenarios using the new server roles and other features.
Remote Desktop Services
RDS supports sessions and license management, with many improvements to the user experience and license management functions. It also includes native virtual machine (VM) support, as well as server roles to facilitate discovery, connection brokering, server farms (for larger-scale deployments and redundancy) and secure WAN access.
The model you choose should depend on whether you have more users or computers. Remember that RDS supports both:
A license for each connecting user or device
Once the licensing grace period is passed, you must have a license for each connecting user or device to connect to an RD Session Host server. You'll also need to activate the RDS Licensing on the server.
- You can virtualize an RD Session Host server, but you'll likely see a reduction in the number of simultaneous sessions it can support. Be sure to model on the same machine type (physical or virtual) you intend to use.
- RDS does not have concurrent-user licensing, and the licenses you select must match the mode for which you configure the RD Session Host server.
- If you do build a virtual RD Session Host server, you should probably use a server with a processor supporting second-level address translation (SLAT) to reduce the overhead of memory mapping between the physical machine and the VMs.
- To minimize cost, its also advisable to use a Type 1 hypervisor like Hyper-V, not a Type 2.
Installation of Windows Remote Desktop Services 2008
Install the RD Licensing role service just as you did the RD Session Host role service. Then you must:
Activate the RD Licensing server
Install RDS CALs
Install RDS CALs so the RD Licensing server can allocate them to users and devices
Use the RD Licensing server *
Tell the RD Session Host server to use the RD Licensing server.
*You must do this even if the two role services are located on the same machine

With Microsoft Server 2012 R2 RDS 1 User CAL ou can move a mailbox between servers in the background, without loss of service. This is possible because the Client Access server now handles all client operations, whereas previously some clients talked directly to the mailbox store. Microsoft also claims to have optimised the Exchange database engine, called the Extensible Storage Engine (ESE), with more efficient schema and fewer input/output operations (IOPS).
I used Microsoft Server 2012 R2 RDS 1 User CAL to replace the Linux system we were using, Cyrus. I am sure it can do more than what I am using it for, but have not had much free time to poke at it. This is the daddy of email servers if you work int he enterprise. I have used open source versions and nothing else really compares. Its a big beast and there is a lot to love and hate about it. The fact is, if you work in IT you need to get to grips with it. I've been using Exchange since 4.0, learned a lot from many migrations from versions 4 and 4.5 to 20... Rock solid exchange server. Not as robust as 2013 but it works pretty awesome as an on premise exchange server.
We have using microsoft Microsoft Server 2012 R2 RDS 1 User CAL for about a year right now. It has been nothing but a workhorse for us with very few problems. It took some time to learn, but worth it. There are critics out there, but personally, I love Exchange. Simple, effective, little downtime, few problems. Microsoft Server 2012 R2 RDS 1 User CAL runs VERY smooth. It is the very best email and collaboration platform out there, no other vendor systems come close to even touching exchange, This is bar none the best product Microsoft makes.
