User or Device CAL? How to choose:

  • User CAL – Grants 1 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 – Grants a specific 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.
