Remote Desktop Services

Remote Desktop Services

Remote Desktop Services (RDS) can be used to allow for the control of a computer through another device over a network connection. RDS is hosted on servers and allows the server to host multiple, simultaneous client sessions. Doing so allows users to access a virtual machine-based desktop, session-based desktops or programs running on a centralised server.

Recently, there has been a rise in the number of people who work from home because of how technology-based and online-based modern work can be. To facilitate this, RDS allows users to access an application or full desktop without having to first install the application on the user’s device, anywhere in the world. This is done by displaying the user interface from the server onto the user’s system, creating the illusion of having the desktop machine being in front of them when in reality, their interactions with the desktop are being transmitted back to the server for execution.

Many organisations have intellectual property limitations and regulations that prevent employees from removing data, applications or files from company property. RDS allows data, applications and files to still be stored and processed on company property while giving employees and users access to it from home. It is also possible to prevent the transfer of data from the system by restricting the user from storing data in USB drives or non-authorised storage devices. Another benefit of storing data on company servers instead of user devices means that if the device is stolen or damaged, all data is still safe on the server, with the server protected by many safeguards and contingencies.

RDS also allows users without sufficiently powerful native devices to still access their workplace. RDS can be used to deliver different operating systems to different devices, allowing users to be flexible. It is also possible to use thin client devices with RDS, negating the need for organisations to provide powerful computer devices to each employee or to spend time and resources to upgrade existing devices. This gives users access to computing power that can be scaled while still using a lower cost device.

RDS is highly beneficial to organisations of different sizes. Organisations will be able to reduce the time and resources spent maintaining devices for individual employees while organisations with regulatory limitations can still allow employees and users to access their data from anywhere quickly and securely.  RDS also saves time and resources as most of the maintenance required to keep this system functional lies with the servers, and less with the thin clients or user devices.
