This is the final installment of this Blog series on Windows Multipoint Server. Over the last 5 posts I’ve tried to give a lot of info on how Multipoint Server currently works, but I wanted to end by talking about where the technology is headed.

 

This product was first released in about 2010. At that point it was of questionable compatibility and stability. Now, however, it has come a long way in the 2012 version. Products like this that haven’t quite made it to the mainstream make me nervous in general, but this story is a happy one! In Windows Server 2016, Multipoint is becoming a role! No more separate OS version, no more worries that it won’t be supported in the future!

 

 

Licensing is getting simplified as well! Now, you just need RDS and Server CALs. Before you needed some specific CALs for Multipoint. All around, I’m really looking forward to Server 2016 to see the improvements it is bringing to Windows Multipoint Server. If you haven’t tried it out, now would be a great time to jump in!
