Confusion about Desktop as a Service vs Terminal Services vs Remote Desktop RRS feed

All replies

  • Microsoft developed the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to enable network administrators and users to access other people computers. This was to help to diagnose and fix problems, or just to manage multiple servers across a large site or large network covering multiple locations. Using RDP the end-user could log into much more powerful computers from long distances, and multiple users could do this from difference locations. Most Windows Operating System have RDP functionality.

    In simple terms VDI is the combination of hardware, software and network configuration which enable virtual desktops and virtual servers to be delivered to the end users. The end users can access their virtual machine from anywhere on the network.

    Desktop as a Service is the service offered by companies to deliver a virtual desktop to an end user for a monthly subscription all hosted in the cloud. The user can log in to their desktop from any device connected to the Internet and access all of their programs and files.

    I hope this information helps!
