  • Your applications don't support Windows 10, Server 2016 or Server 2019.
  • You're unsure which desktop delivery is appropriate for you (Server 2016, 2019 or Windows 10 VDI or laptop).

Relax, we've got you covered:

Solution at a glance

Microsoft has released the newest version of Remote Desktop Services (RDS), RDS 2019, on October 2, 2018. RDS 2019 builds on the strong foundation of RDS 2016, letting you rapidly deploy on-premises or in the cloud. RDS 2019 is generally available with Windows Server 2019.

RDS 2019 will give customers the opportunity to leverage fantastic enhancements that make it the optimal version of RDS, to date, with several areas of innovation to improve the administrative and client experiences.

However many environments are unable to move to RDS Server 2019, so we also highly recommend RDS Server 2016 as the the platform of choice for building virtualization solutions for every end customer need, including delivering individual virtualized applications, providing secure mobile and remote desktop access, and providing end users the ability to run their applications and desktops from the cloud.
