Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop Device CAL License

Includes 1 Remote Desktop Protocol Device CAL. Each Device can access the server remotely no matter the number of users. Windows Server 2016 has countless new upgrades including Personal Session Desktops functionality. This allows service providers to assign personal desktops to end-users, based on Windows Server 2016 in the Guest VM instead of Windows Client OS. The personal session desktop capability extends the session-based desktop deployment scenario in Remote Desktop Services to create a new type of session collection where each user is assigned to their own personal session host with administrative rights.

Windows Server Licensing Guide

User or Device CAL? How to choose:

  • User CAL – Gives an individual the right to access the terminal server from any of their devices including their workstation in the office, laptop/desktop at home, or mobile device.
    • Why User CAL?
    • It will be more cost effective if you have more devices than users. Only 1 user CAL would be required to cover “X” number of devices.
    • User CALs are Trusted Tech Team's recommendation. They're cheaper to license and offer more flexibility.
  • Device CAL – Allows your individual device the ability to access the terminal server such as a workstation in the office or a tablet used to take customer orders.
    • Why Device CAL?
    • It will be more cost effective if you have numerous users who all access the same device to remote into the server. This method is typically seen in medical offices or warehouses in which the same device has more than one user throughout the day. You will only need to purchase one CAL for each device instead of numerous user CAL for each user.

    Whichever solution you choose, you have another layer of flexibility when it comes to content that is published to your users:

    • Desktop: Your IT admin will be able to push any applications, folders, and documentation onto each user's session. All sessions have the ability to include or exclude any content. This method is preferred if your users are going to be utilizing their remote session as their primary workstation.
    • RemoteApps: Preferred if you want to host your applications on a virtual machine as if they're directly on your user's desktops. Typically used when you want to manage applications in a secure, remote environment.
