Microsoft is holding a partners webcast on 21st Sep 2009, 6pm GMT “Licensing Centralized Desktops: Microsoft VDI and WS08 R2 Remote Desktop Services”. This session’ll provide an opportunity to learn about key licensing aspects of Microsoft VDI Suites and Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services Client Access License (RDS-CAL). Microsoft’s new VDI offerings, the “VDI Standard Suite” and the “VDI Premium Suite”, slated to hit the price list in Oct, package key VDI infrastructure and management components from Microsoft and streamline the licensing to better line up with the existing VECD license. In addition, the new RDS-CAL, which’s replacing the familiar TS-CAL for traditional session virtualization infrastructure (aka Terminal Services), offers even greater infrastructure capabilities in Windows Server 208 R2; in this Academy Live session, also provide an update to the licensing terms of the new RDS-CAL in the context of the new RDS capabilities.
