Providing access to a quality server is one of the major responsibilities for any business. Using user CALs to give more access to your Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop allows your employees access to the programs, communication, and storage from anywhere in the world. Users with user CALs can enjoy the improved connection and user experience, while gaining more from the administrative efficiencies found in the R2 edition.

What Are User CALs?

In order to access Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop, you will require a CAL, or client access license. There are two types of CALs: user and device. A user CAL allows one user to access the server from any device, while a device CAL allows multiple users to access the server from a single device. This product includes a user CAL. SoftwareKeep also sells device CALs for Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop.

Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop Services Is Not Included in This Product

Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop is not sold as part of this product. In order to run these user CALs, a server must already be installed and in use. However, SoftwareKeep does sell Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop.


The upgrade to Windows Server 2012 Remote Desktop includes all the same great features from that initial launch, along with many new ones, all designed to improve the user’s and the administrator’s experience. Some of the biggest features include:

  • Remote use for all users - First and foremost, Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop allows, as the name suggests, for users to access and use the features of the server both locally and remotely. With remote access, users can save and share files, communicate with colleagues, and get all the other benefits of server use anywhere as long as there is an internet connection.
  • RemoteApp improvements - With Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop, running remote apps is more like running them locally. This is due to a number of changes (some highlighted below), but the upshot is it allows for remote users to work as if they are right there in the office at all times.
  • Improved reconnect and bandwidth - Part of what makes the remote app experience better is the improvements in reconnecting to the server when the connection is severed and the compression improvements (highlighted below) that use less bandwidth.
  • Single sign-on - Streamline the signing in process by allowing users to sign in only once into the system. It saves time and offers convenience, while also saving space as each program doesn’t have to store credentials.
  • Mobile device connection - Sign in and use the system from your mobile device. At the same time, store data from your mobile device in case of the need for a backup. More and more people use their mobile device for their primary computing needs. Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote can accommodate that.
  • Work Folders - With Work Folders, you’ll never need Dropbox again. Work Folders is a secure file replication program that encrypts the files stored there. It keeps files on the server and on the individual computer, while syncing regularly to make sure both are up to date.
  • PowerShell 4 - The fourth edition of PowerShell comes with even more features to help run your server efficiently. Among the best is Desired State Configuration, which allows administrators to set roles and features across the server. Desired State Configuration then monitors the system to make sure those roles and features don’t change. Updates are then performed to return to the base expectations set by the administrator. These is also improved debugging and diagnostics, as well as a number of other features.
  • Hyper-V updates - Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop provides Hyper-V with more power and features than ever before. It has access to up to a TB of memory and 64 TB of virtual memory, while being able to access up to 64 virtual processors. Features include cloud backup, storage resource pools, and multi-tenancy on the server.
  • Live Migration - Live Migration allows for transfer of virtual machines from one host to another without any disconnection or downtime. This new edition expands those powers, allowing for transfers from Windows Server 2012 to Windows Server 2012 R2. At the same time, new compression abilities speed up the Live Migration process by around 20%.
  • Tiered Storage Space - Get your most regularly accessed data moved to the fastest tiers so that it can also be the most quickly accessed data. Microsoft runs a heat map to determine which file clusters are the most used, and then automatically transitions them to the fastest tier, allowing for most more efficient server usage for users.
  • Data Deduplication expansion - Data deduplication is the process of removing duplicates within the data to allow for greater compression. The first Windows Server 2012 introduced this to the server, but now, it has been expanded to Hyper-V virtual machines a well. This significantly improves the boot speed for virtual machines, better caching, and overall more efficiency.
  • Use Windows 8.1 - If your business still uses Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop is the ideal choice. It works efficiently with the operating system and maximizes its features.
  • Works with Office 365 - Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop is designed to allow Office 365 usage to be incorporated.

Providing user CALs to employees provides them with access to all the benefits of your Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop. With improved user and administrator experiences and more tools to address individual and server-wide needs, giving users the CALs to join your network can improve business productivity and efficiency, all while allowing employees to work from anywhere and on any device.
