Microsoft RemoteFX for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure: Architectural Overview
Windows Server® 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services includes a new set of user experience technologies in Service Pack 1(SP1) called Microsoft® RemoteFX™. RemoteFX delivers a full-fidelity user experience for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) by providing a 3D virtual adapter, intelligent CODECs, and the ability to redirect USB devices in virtual machines. As part of the Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 platform, RemoteFX is integrated with the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), which enables shared encryption, authentication, management, and device support.
This paper provides an architectural overview of RemoteFX in the context of VDI—using a new role called the Remote Desktop Virtual Host (RD Virtualization Host) designed specifically for VDI using Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 in a Hyper-V server role.
