Announcing the MultiPoint Services Role in Window Server vNext Technical Preview


Hello! I am Tanmay Bhagwat, a Program Manager on the Remote Desktop team working on Windows MultiPoint Server, Remote Desktop Session Host, Desktop Experience, and Azure RemoteApp. With the release of the Windows Server Technical Preview, we are excited to share that we will be adding a new role called MultiPoint Services to Windows Server. The MultiPoint Services role brings all the goodness of the Windows MultiPoint Server 2012 product to Windows Server.

Windows MultiPoint Server is a Microsoft product originally developed for educational institutions, for use in classrooms, labs and libraries. Low-cost station hardware is connected to the host PC via USB, video card, or local area network (LAN) technology. Each user has their own independent and familiar Windows computing experience, using their own monitor, keyboard and mouse connected to the host computer. In a nutshell, MultiPoint allows multiple users, each with their own independent Windows experience, to simultaneously share one computer.

Unlike a complete RDS deployment, MultiPoint does not use or require Remote Desktop (RD) Broker and RD Gateway. MultiPoint is ideal for basic use-case scenarios where the server and the end-user access device are in close proximity (i.e. physically connected) or connected via LAN.
