How to Install Remote Desktop Virtualization
Host Role Service

The Remote Desktop Virtualization Host integrates with Hype-V, acting as a host that provides virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) functions.

Unlike the Remote Desktop Services that provide a single server shared by multiple users, RDVH provides a one-to-one session as users enjoy separate memory pools, client boot shells, and complete isolation from other guests.

This tutorial will show you how to install Remote Desktop Virtualization Host Role Service, a new role added to the Windows Server 2008 with massive enhancements in newer versions.

Installation Procedure
