Microsoft announced Remote Desktop Modern Infrastructure (RDmi) last year and it remains in private preview as of this posting date. Customers eager to try the latest form of the Remote Desktop Services platform should check out this week's TeamRGE video showing off an early technical preview of RDmi.
Freek Berson, a remoting Windows enthusiast, provides a quick snapshot into the latest in Microsoft Remote Desktop Services. In this TeamRGE webinar, Berson examines what it means to run RDS on an Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform, the changes to RDS, and HTML5 getting added.
After a short explanation of the current iteration of RDS and the changes RDmi brings, Berson provides a live demo for those curious but so far haven’t given this latest incarnation of Remote Desktop Services a try. First, he provides a demo of a traditional RDS deployment on Azure before showing off RDmi.
RDmi and RDS 2016 both support clientless access from a modern browser, but the big difference Berson points out is that there are no virtual machines for the RDmi infrastructure. This is because RDmi is more based on PaaS model than before and the previous roles are now .NET services. He also notes there are a few aspects, such a handling multimedia, that he has not yet tested himself as this is still an early version of technical preview. Check out the video to learn more about RDmi.
See you next week!
