Windows Server 2019 licensing model
This product is a license for a Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop User CAL for Microsoft Windows Server 2019 (sold separately) that allows a device to connect to your server remotely.
Each user and device accessing a licensed Windows Server Standard, Datacenter or Multipoint edition require a Windows Server CAL, or a Windows Server and a RDS CAL.
The Windows Server 2019 licensing model includes both Cores + Client Access Licenses (CALs).
Access to server
A Windows Server CAL allows access to any edition of Windows Server of the same or earlier version.
Access to multiple licenses
Each Window Server CAL provides access to multiple licenses of Windows Server.
After the General Availability of Windows Server 2019, the business model for Standard and Datacenter editions will transition from processor-based to corebased licensing.
|Editions||Licensing model||CAL requirements*|

What I have found most pleasing about Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Remote Desktop Device CAL - Open Academic is, honestly, the aesthetics. It is such a welcome change from past iterations of Server OS. Along with the aesthetic changes, I have found the overall responsiveness to be better than 2012. Great direction! From what I have experienced so far, Windows Server 2016 is the best Server OS yet. Features such as Nano Server, Containers, and Shielded VMs have taken the Windows Server family into a new generation of security and stability. I look forward to using at least some of the many new features in both lab and real world environments.
I've used 2012 R2 for several year and liked it. I tried out Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Remote Desktop Device CAL - Open Academic and have had no issues with it at all. Installs easily, runs smoothing and integrates into our existing environment without any hassle I have used Server 2008 and 2012 for studying purposes. Seeing the new features of Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Remote Desktop Device CAL - Open Academic as well as the similar layout to Windows 10, I look forward to using this in the workforce and for studying purposes.
Currently running Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Remote Desktop Device CAL - Open Academic. Installed with GUI. Install was quickest to date. The GUI is similar to Windows 10 with the same look/feel. We only run basic services (DNS, DHCP, File, Print). Everything is there and how I would expect it to be. There are a lot of new features I want to test. Nano Server and Containers being two of them. Looks like I'm going to have to learn some more powershell!
