Microsoft Windows Virtual Client Licensing Explained

Microsoft Windows Virtual Client Licensing Explained

Desktop virtualization solutions can help organizations to increase security, enhance end user flexibility, streamline endpoint management and reduce desktop TCO. This guide will help you understand how to license Microsoft® Windows® for virtual desktop and session-based desktop scenarios.

There are three types of endpoints from which you can connect to a Windows virtual desktop:

  1. From a traditional, physical desktop or laptop PC already running Windows
  2.  From a device running a non-Windows operating system (OS). This includes iPads, other tablet devices, smartphones or thin clients running Linux or a proprietary OS.
  3. From a thin client running Windows Embedded Standard 7/8 (WES7, WE8S) or Windows 10 IoT Enterprise (WIE10)

This guide will help determine which licensing option is right for different types of endpoints.
