There is a pervasive question for Presentation Virtualisation using Remote Desktop Session Host services (RDSH) and that is :-
“if I’m already paying for RDS CALs and running the base OS, why do I need other stuff?”

I was introduced to many new sports over the summer and one sport that stuck in the mind, not only for it sheer fury and skill, was wheelchair rugby (or Quad rugby). Or as the Canadian inventors, named it – Murderball.

Sneaking into August, like an American multi-gold medallist back from a celebratory night out on the champagne, Microsoft’s Windows 2012 boasts a wide array of new features. Hyper-V’s improvement are worthy of a post in themselves: live migration, teaming of 32 NICs, thin provisioning, dynamic memory.

There are now only four versions, and licensing is processor and client access license based.
