What is Remote Desktop Services?

Remote Desktop Services, abbreviated to RDS, is a service from Microsoft that allows you to log into a remote server via a device. A device is also called a ‘client’ and logging into the remote server is often referred to as ‘remote’. This device can be a laptop, computer, phone or tablet. Are you curious about what Remote Desktop Services is? We are happy to give you the answer to your question. 

How does Remote Desktop Services work? 

First of all, you should know that an RDS environment is password protected. After a user gains access to the RDS environment, he or she has his or her own desktop, files and programs necessary to carry out his or her work. The reason it is called a ‘remote desktop’ is because the desktop is not installed on a local device but on a remote server. From your device you log in to the remote server, giving you access to your own desktop. 

The advantage of the Remote Desktop environment is that it does not matter from which client you log in. You can log in from your tablet, phone, laptop, computer or other type of device, and the type of operating system does not matter. As long as you have been given access to the Remote Desktop environment, you can log in with your username and password. Another advantage of Microsoft RDS is that you can also log in on your own device. This is useful for organizations that use, or want to use, a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BOYD) principle, in which employees use their own laptop, computer, telephone or tablet for work and private use. 

Remote Desktop Services in your company 

Nowadays RDS is widely used in companies worldwide. For example, it can be useful for your company if you have employees, or if you are on the road a lot and want to log in to your company’s secure environment. Especially in times when working from home is increasingly becoming ‘the norm’, it is useful if you or your colleagues can log in from home or elsewhere and access their files and applications.
