48 C H A P T E R 2 | Compute Figure 2-51: VM displaying the newly added NIC MultiPoint Services By Shabbir Ahmed and Ramnish Singh This section covers Windows MultiPoint Server. This is a shared resource technology from Microsoft that delivers low-cost shared computing, primarily for education environments. As we explain, Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview will include a new MultiPoint Services role feature with which you can use the functionality of Windows MultiPoint Server in your Windows Server deployment. Windows MultiPoint Server Before discussing MultiPoint Services in Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview, it might be useful to talk about Windows MultiPoint Server. Windows MultiPoint Server, built on Windows Server technology, is a Windows solution that makes it possible for multiple users, each with their own independent and familiar Windows experiences, to simultaneously share one computer. The first version of Windows MultiPoint Server, based on Windows Server 2008 R2, was released in February 2010 and was called Windows MultiPoint Server 2010. In March 2011, Microsoft released Windows MultiPoint Server 2011, based on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. The most recent version, Windows MultiPoint Server 2012, was released in November 2012 and contains several new features and upgrades from previous versions. Like any other server, you can install Windows MultiPoint Server on a physical or virtual server, and you can create users inside the server by using MultiPoint Manager. Also, like other Windows-based servers, Windows MultiPoint Server gives you the full capabilities and experience of Windows as well as access to all of the latest updates.
