5 Pack - Device CALs for Remote Desktop Services to Windows Server 2016 buy used
In order to use the Remote Desktop Services (RDS) of Windows Server 2016, a corresponding RDS Client Access License (RDS CAL) is required for each user, in order to also be able to access the Windows programs etc. in the company network locally and independently. A conventional CAL for Windows Server does not cover these rights. One possibility is Device CALs for Remote Desktop Services, which regulates access for a specific registered end device (Device) for a Remote Desktop session. RDS Device 2016 CALs as used software from Wiresoft have the advantage of a lower price compared to RDS CALs from traditional license providers, they offer the same functionalities as the client access licenses defined in the official Microsoft volume licensing program for Remote Desktop Services for a Windows Server .
What are the advantages of RDS CALs for Windows Server 2016?
Remote Desktop Services - referred to as Terminal Services in previous versions - is a dedicated server role for users using services, etc. from Windows Server 2016 or other Server versions without the respective Windows programs installed on the local machine CALs for RDS 2016 regulate this access, they are made available to the licensed end device via the corresponding Windows Server as host in the context of a remote desktop session. Each User, which uses a PC or laptop etc., which has a corresponding client access license - i.e. a RDS Device CAL - can use it via this locally independently (remotely), but also at the location of the company network via an Internet connection.
Advantages of Remote Desktop Service Device CALs to Windows Server 2016 for User
Every user who uses a registered terminal device with an RDS Device CAL for Windows Server 2016 can use it to access a standardized Windows working environment for each session. During a remote desktop session, the Windows programs are executed via the host on the corresponding Server; this is done separately from other client connections, so that a user only sees his or her own session.
With the RDS Device CAL 2016, User can also use older terminals whose hardware or performance is weaker, since they use the power of the Windows server via the Remote Desktop Services ; Remote Desktop Service CALs 2016 for terminals thus make the provision of more powerful hardware unnecessary.
Advantages of RDS CALs to Windows Server 2016 for administrators
In addition to the benefits of RDS Device (and User) CALs 2016 for users, these also offer many practical functions for administrators, as they make the management of all users much more efficient: Windows Software can thus be deployed and managed centrally in an enterprise network instead of installing it on each individual end device. This is done solely via the Windows Server , on which it is provided and also updated with updates if necessary.
The RDS Device CALs also specify the respective rights for the licensed end device, so that authorized users can access the Server via it only with the appropriate access rights. The effort for maintenance and provisioning of workstations is thus significantly reduced with the RDS Device CALs for Windows Server 2016.
Technical information about the Remote Desktop Service Device CALs for Windows Server 2016
The deployment or use of RDS Device CALs for Remote-Connections to a Windows Server includes various functions, in addition, the compatibility of CAL and Server must also be taken into account.
Server-Roles of Remote Desktop Services
Device (as well as User) CALs for the RDS of Windows Server 2016 contain multiple roles, which together allow the use of the Windows programs etc. for a licensed end device or a User:
- Remote Desktop Licensing-Manager regulates the use of or provides the RDS for endpoint with Device CAL for the Server.
- For each session, the Remote Desktop session host manages the desktops or programs provided to an endpoint (or user).
- The Remote Desktop Connection Broker provides the RDS connection for a session and, in the event of an interruption during a session, restores it.
- The Remote Desktop Gateway is used in a public network to control access via the terminal to a Windows-Desktop.
- TheWeb Access for the Remote Desktop Services provides access for certain users or groups via RDS CAL via a web portal.
Version compatibility of Remote Desktop Service Device CALs for Windows Server 2016
Each RDS-CAL - no matter if for a terminal (Device) or for a User or user - must be compatible with the Windows Server version with which a connection is established via it. For RDS-CALs for Windows Server 2016, this means that it can be used to access Windows Server 2016, OR an older version of Windows Server (downgrade). However, an RDS-CAL 2016 cannot be used to access a higher version of Windows Server . This requires a corresponding CAL -version of Remote Desktop Services .
Comparison Device CALs vs. User CALs for Remote Desktop Services from Windows Server 2016
Basically, as already indicated, the implementation of a particular Microsoft Server software such as version 2016 is separate from its actual use - this always requires one of the two corresponding client access licenses. The access rights for the use of Windows Server are regulated by Microsoft in its own licensing system, which is based on the Client Access Licenses or CALs.
In addition to the conventional access licenses for a Windows Server , Device or User CALs are also required for the Remote Desktop Services in order to also have locally independent access - Remote - via the Web to the Windows Server . The RDS CAL system offers Server administrators not only the differentiated management of access rights, but it also means additional security, because foreign User or unregistered end devices without this access license (RDS Device CAL) have no access to the available Server-Services or data.
Microsoft offers two different types of CALs for the Remote Desktop Services of Windows Server 2016:
- Device CAL for RDS: this gives access rights to a specific end device (PC, Laptop, Table, Mobile)
- User CAL for RDS: this equips a specific user with access rights
Typical features of a Device CAL for Remote Desktop Services 2016
The RDS Device CAL applies only to a single, dedicated terminal device that is registered for it. The CAL device for the Remote Desktop Services is used to control its access rights to the Windows Server or host for each remote desktop session. Any employee using the PC, laptop, etc. equipped with the RDS Device CAL can claim the Remote Desktop Services for Windows Server 2016. For laptops, tablets or other mobile devices, which can be used regardless of location, the RDS Device CAL offers the advantage that the respective User has the possibility to claim the RDS at the company location, on the road or in the Home-Office.
When a connection is first established between the client computer and the terminal device, a temporary access license is granted for it in licensing mode Pro Device . When a remote desktop session connects to a Server as a host for the second time, a permanent Device RDS-CAL is issued for the device - provided one is available at the remote desktop licensing-Manager.
Overview of all RDS Device CALs features for Windows Server 2016
- The Device CAL is always physically assigned to a specific end device - instead of a specific User
- Each RDS Device CAL is tracked by the respective license server,
- independent of the registration in the Active Directory
- Temporary RDS CALs for endpoints are valid between 52 and 89 days
- The number of each fixed Device CALs cannot be overused
From the foregoing, the answer to the question of which type of a Remote desktops Service CAL offers more advantages in an organization depends on the individual case. The decision for a form of RDS client access licensing must be made before the purchase, because it is not possible to retrospectively convert a Device CAL into a User CAL or vice versa. When purchasing an RDS Device CALs , the number of employees and workstations plays a role: As soon as several employees share an end device or work predominantly stationary, then the Device CAL for RDS offers the greater advantage.
