Terminal Services Deployment Guide
Updated: March 15, 2010
Applies To: Windows Server 2008
Deploying Terminal Services in your Windows Server® 2008 environment provides technologies that enable users to access Windows®-based programs that are installed on a terminal server, or to access the full Windows desktop. By using Terminal Services, users can access a terminal server from within a corporate network or from the Internet.
Terminal Services enables you to efficiently deploy and maintain software in an enterprise environment from a central location. Because you install the programs on the terminal server and not on the client computer, programs are easier to upgrade and to maintain.
|In Windows Server 2008 R2, Terminal Services was renamed Remote Desktop Services. To find out what's new in this version and to find the most up-to-date resources, visit the Remote Desktop Services page on the Windows Server TechCenter.|
This guide is intended for use by system administrators and system engineers who are responsible for deploying the Terminal Services role services and features. It provides detailed guidance for deploying a Terminal Services design that is preselected by you, an infrastructure specialist, or a system architect in your organization.
