We offer Windows servers with Remote Desktop Services for unique user desktop sessions.

Windows Server with RDS for individual user desktop sessions can be a very cost effective solution for companies with a smaller number of users (<25 users). This option provides users with a customizable desktop session and ability to share applications between users.

Some companies want each employee to have a completely isolated virtual machine for each user. This option requires  Windows Desktop (Windows 10,11) licensing. Riptide Hosting cannot provide Windows Desktop licensing.  

Remote Desktop Services on Windows Server – You can utilize a Windows Server OS (we provide) (versions 2022 or Server 2019) with Remote Desktop Services (RDS) to provide each user their own customizable desktop session.

Applications such as an access databases, accounting applications, business software, and MS Office can be installed on the server once and accessible by each user session simultaneously. Users have access to both a private folder (i.e. my documents) and a public folder to easily share documents between users. A Remote Desktop server is often the cheapest method for providing desktop sessions. At Riptide, a virtual machine with licensing for Windows 2022 or 2019 starts at $115 plus RDS user licenses at $9.99 each.
