An RDS host is a server computer that hosts applications and desktop sessions for remote access. An RDS host can be a virtual machine or a physical server. In the previous post, we have discussed in detail about installing Remote deskop session host. In View, an RDS host is a server that has the Microsoft Remote Desktop Services role, the Microsoft Remote Desktop Session Host service, and View Agent installed. Remote Desktop Services was previously known as Terminal Services. The Remote Desktop Session Host service allows a server to host applications and remote desktop sessions. With View Agent installed on an RDS host, users can connect to applications and desktop sessions by using the display protocol PCoIP. PCoIP provides an optimized user experience for the delivery of remote content, including images, audio and video.
