Windows Server 2012 R2 contains the Remote Desktop Services server role which is used to provide session-based and virtual machine-based desktop deployments. This role provides a fault-tolerant and scalable RDS deployment. VM-based desktops allow clients to connect to a full Windows desktop as either a pooled or personal virtual desktop. Session-based desktop deployments allow clients to access applications from their desktops as if they were installed locally. This course will discuss the planning and implementing of VDI environments. It will also demonstrate how to deploy session-based and VM-based virtual desktop deployments. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft Exam 70-694: Virtualizing Enterprise Desktops and Apps certification exam with credit toward MCP, Microsoft Specialist credentials.
