What Is Microsoft Windows Server?

Microsoft Windows Server is an operating system designed to provide Windows-quality usability on a server. The Windows Server provides a full list of server features, such as data storage, server management, applications, and communications, among other abilities. It includes security features, as well as features to create a stable network that allows for consistent availability of all features.

Windows Server is designed to be available to all users with CALs (see User CAL below for more on CALs).

Windows Server 2008 R2 is built on the same kennel as Windows 7 and shares some similarities to that individual operating system.

What Is Remote Desktop Service?

Remote Desktop Service provides users with the ability to access the server remotely and take control of a remote desktop or virtual machine. With the Remote Desktop Service, the user’s device only handles the software interface. All other processes are run on the server, allowing the user device to work more smoothly.

What Is a User CAL?

In order to connect to your Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Service, you will need to have a client access license, or CAL. CALs come in two forms: user and device. A User CAL allows one user to access the server from any device. This product includes 5 User CALs.

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Service provides a vast set of features, along with a smooth-running and easily navigated operating system. It includes more virtualization, more communication, more collaboration, and powerful new administrative tools.

Access to all the server features from anywhere, on any device—One of the great benefits of providing your business with Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Service is its ability to allow access to users from literally anywhere in the world. So long as there’s an internet connection, users can enjoy the full set of features on the server.

Improved visual quality through Remote Desktop Service—The Remote Desktop Service was first introduced in the 2008 R2 version. Among other improved remote usage features is the new levels of visual quality thanks to RemoteFX.

Data backup for computer and server—One of the primary uses of a server is to store and backup data. Windows Server 2008 R2 provides not just the basic ability to backup data on your devices, it also backs up data on the server itself to make sure all data can be restored in the case of any data loss.

SharePoint collaboration included—Providing a business with a network includes many benefits, but one of the greatest that comes with Windows Server 2008 R2 is the improved collaboration that comes with SharePoint. SharePoint allows users to share documents, collaborate on projects, as well as spread new information through wikis and surveys, among other options.

Exchange communication tools—Another communication benefit on the server is Exchange, which provides business-level email for the whole network, plus the ability to share contacts and calendars to keep everyone’s schedule free of conflict.

More virtualization solutions with Hyper-V—Hyper-V gets several major improvements that allow you to create more powerful virtualization solutions. It includes Failover Clustering capabilities to keep your virtual machines on high availability. It also includes Live Migration, which makes it easier to move virtual machines from host to host without disconnections and downtime.

Core Parking provides more power saving—With Core Parking, your operating system automatically suspends the running of cores that are not currently in use, saving power for the server. Those cores can restart in milliseconds, so there is no noticeable change in usability.

Avoid accidental deletion with Recycle Bin—Previous editions of the Windows Server had a fatal flaw when users accidentally deleted crucial files. The 2008 R2 edition solves this issue by providing a Recycle Bin just like the one Windows users are already familiar with, allowing the easy retrieval of an accidental deletion.

New levels of security on the server—The server includes more encryption, as well as the Domain Name System Security Extensions that keep your data more secure than ever.

PowerShell 2.0 improvements—With PowerShell 2.0, it isn’t just users who can work remotely. Now, administrators can also run background work and debugging remotely.

Active Directory to more easily run the server—With Active Directory, administrators find all their tools in a single location for the first time. With the Active Directory, administrators can more easily run large networks.
