Remote Desktop Services in Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1 includes a new set of user experience technologies called Microsoft RemoteFX. RemoteFX delivers a full-fidelity user experience for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) by providing a 3D virtual adapter, intelligent CODECs, and the ability to redirect USB devices on virtual machines.

As part of the Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1 platform, RemoteFX is integrated with the RDP protocol, which enables shared encryption, authentication, management, and device support.

This white paper provides an architectural overview of RemoteFX in the context of VDI by using a new role service called Remote Desktop Virtualization Host designed specifically for VDI, using Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1 in a Hyper-V role.

This white paper provides an architectural overview of RemoteFX in the context of session virtualization by using a new Windows Server role service known as Remote Desktop Session Host, designed specifically for modern session virtualization environments that use Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
