4604.Server-2012-logo_7A80D087 (1).png

The Microsoft Windows Server server operating system enables a network server to handle a diverse set of roles — such as print server, domain controller, web server, and file server — and to be the platform for separately acquired server applications — such as Microsoft Exchange Server or Microsoft SQL Server.

Products available in the Microsoft Windows Server range:


 

Microsoft Windows Server

 

Client Access Licences

A Microsoft Windows Server Device Client Access Licence (CAL) or Microsoft Windows Server User CAL is required for each user or device accessing or using the server software, with the exception of anonymous Internet users.

An example of such an exception would be unidentified users browsing the organisation's public Web site. For this reason, no CALs are needed for accessing Microsoft Windows Web Server

This provides access to Microsoft Windows Server for one user, regardless of how many devices they access the server from. For example when an employee accesses the server from a computer at work and another computer at home.

This provides access to Microsoft Windows Server for one device, regardless of how many users access the server from it, for example on a shared workstation. 

 

Remote Desktop Services

Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop Services, formerly known as Microsoft Windows Terminal Services, is a technology that lets users remotely execute applications on Microsoft Windows Server from a wide range of devices over virtually any type of network connection.

Clients are available for a wide variety of operating systems - including older versions of Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X - and can be downloaded from Microsoft's Web site. They will be able to run applications on Microsoft Windows Server in a window on the terminal.

Separate Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop Services Client Access Licences or External Connector Licences are required to access these services. Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop Services CALs will permit access to Microsoft Windows Terminal Services, and Microsoft Windows Terminal Services CALs that were valid for Windows Server 2008 will still permit access to Windows Remote Desktop Services.

This provides access to Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop Services for one user, regardless of how many devices they access the server from. For example when an employee accesses the server from a computer at work and another computer at home.
