50 C H A P T E R 2 | Compute Premium: Up to 20 simultaneously connected stations Joining a domain is supported Virtualization is supported as a host or guest operating system Scenario for better understanding Imagine a classroom at a university. This room must accommodate 15 students at any given time and each student needs to do the following: View the presentation or content of what the teacher is presenting Create, access, and share files Get instructions and messages from the instructor Collaborate with others Get an enhanced learning experience At the same time, the instructor should be able to do following: Monitor the learning experience from wherever she is delivering the presentation See what the students are doing by accessing their desktops Send messages to individuals and to the class as a whole Allow websites Use remote control to assist students when they need help The premium version of Windows MultiPoint Server with 15 stations of either USB, video cable, or LAN-based RDP client stations (or a mix of these) can meet these requirements and make it possible for the students to learn efficiently and productively at their own workstations. Note A single monitor can be used by two students with a split screen. You can use existing monitors, keyboards, and mice, and you can use MultiPoint Connector to manage Windows 7 or Windows 8-based PCs or laptops, just like any other secondary station. For more information, go to multipoint-server-2012.aspx. MultiPoint Services role in Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview With the release of Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview, Microsoft introduces a new role (as of this writing), called MultiPoint Services, with which you can use the functionality of Windows MultiPoint Server in your Windows Server deployment. MultiPoint Services makes it possible for multiple users, each with their own Windows experience, to share a single computer. When users sign in to the shared computer, they see their individual desktops instead of a standard, shared desktop. From a technical perspective, when you install the MultiPoint Services role, Remote Desktop Session Host is also installed, which makes it possible for multiple users to access a single server. The two work together to provide lower total cost of ownership as well as the ability to use orchestration tools to manage Remote Desktop Session Host sessions and other devices.
