What’s New in Remote Desktop Services

Posted by Rubel Khan on September 16, 2009

Remote Desktop Services, formerly Terminal Services, provides technologies that enable users to access session-based desktops, virtual machine-based desktops, or applications in the datacenter from both within a corporate network and from the Internet. Remote Desktop Services enables a rich-fidelity desktop or application experience, and helps to securely connect remote users from managed or unmanaged devices.

In Windows Server 2008 R2, all Remote Desktop Services role services have been renamed. The following table lists both the former name and the new name of each Remote Desktop Services role service.

Previous name Name in Windows Server 2008 R2
Terminal Services Remote Desktop Services

Terminal Services Gateway (TS Gateway) Remote Desktop Gateway (RD Gateway)
Terminal Services Session Broker (TS Session Broker) Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RD Connection Broker)
Terminal Services Web Access (TS Web Access) Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access)

In addition to the Remote Desktop Services role services names, the name of the Remote Desktop Services management tools have also changed.
