1 Licensing Microsoft s Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Technology Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) offers the ability to rapidly and securely deploy desktops from the data center to users. The information technology (IT) organization can manage desktops centrally, and VDI helps improve security by centralizing users data. VDI also gives end users the flexibility they need to access their work desktops from almost any device that has a reliable network connection. VDI enables IT to think about desktop deployment and management in new ways. At the same time, VDI also requires new licensing models, because models based on physical access are no longer appropriate for providing access to virtual resources. This brief provides an overview of the key VDI components and how Microsoft licenses them.

3 02 VDI Overview Figure 1 illustrates key components of a VDI implementation. You can learn more about each component at the Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure homepage: Hyper-V Included in Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1), Hyper-V provides a robust virtualization platform that enables IT to host virtual desktops in the data center. Remote Desktop Services (RDS) RDS brokers connections from the access device to virtual machines (VMs) running in the data center. Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Figure 1 VDI components VDI enables IT to think about desktop deployment and management in new ways. It offers the ability to rapidly deploy desktops from the data center to users; centrally manage desktops; and improve security by centralizing users data.

4 03 Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) MDOP includes, among other tools, Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) to enable applications on demand without installation. System Center Configuration Manager Configuration Manager provides a unified infrastructure for centralized and comprehensive VDI management. Access devices End users can use any endpoint device that supports access protocols like Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to connect to the VDI desktop. Hyper-V For a VDI deployment, customers can host virtual desktops by using: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with Hyper-V The free edition of Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 SP1 Customers using Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 must have a Windows Server 2008 R2 license for each physical server instance. Additionally, every device or user connecting to the VDI will also require a Windows Server Client Access License (CAL). Customers using Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 must have a Windows Server 2008 R2 license for each physical server instance. Additionally, every device or user connecting to the VDI will also require a Windows Server CAL. For example, Woodgrove Bank is a Software Assurance (SA) customer that wants to run 100 VDI desktops on two instances of Windows Server. It will need to ensure that each of the two servers has a Windows Server license (Standard, Enterprise, or Datacenter). Alternatively, it could use the free edition of Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 SP1. Each user or device connecting to VDI also requires a Windows Server CAL. For more information about buying Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with Hyper-V, see the Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V homepage.

5 04 Remote Desktop Services In Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, RDS brokers connections between access devices and VMs running in the data center, and it delivers a rich, local-like experience to end users by using RemoteFX technology. Users can access their VDI desktops from almost anywhere with a reliable network connection, on almost any device that supports RDP. The RDS CAL is the primary license for Microsoft VDI. It offers the flexibility to deploy both VDI and RDS Session Virtualization so that you can provide access to full desktop and shared desktop experiences. You must purchase one RDS CAL for each device or user that accesses VDI. A Windows Server CAL is also required for that device or user, if one does not already exist. The RDS CAL is the primary license for Microsoft VDI. You must purchase one RDS CAL for each device or user that accesses VDI. A Windows Server CAL is also required for that device or user, if one does not already exist. As Figure 1 showed, RDS combined with Hyper-V, MDOP, Configuration Manager, and access devices comprise the complete VDI stack. Because many enterprise organizations with Microsoft infrastructure already own licenses for Hyper-V, System Center, and MDOP, an RDS CAL is the only additional license they need to purchase in order to deploy the Microsoft VDI solution. Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure For example, Contoso, Ltd is an SA customer already running Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 on its servers and Windows 7 Enterprise (a benefit of SA) on its PCs. It also uses Configuration Manager along with MDOP to manage its desktop environment. Contoso, Ltd needs only to add the RDS CAL to its existing portfolio to license VDI. For more information about buying the RDS CAL, see the Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services homepage. Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack MDOP is a toolset that can help organizations streamline PC deployment and management. MDOP includes App-V, an application virtualization technology that enables organizations to centrally deploy and manage applications without requiring installation.

6 05 In addition to its management benefits, App-V can help reduce the size of desktop images to increase VDI density and lower the cost of deploying VDI. App-V delivers applications on demand, eliminating the need to include the applications within the core desktop image. MDOP is an annual devicebased add-on subscription for SA customers or those that have SA rights through the VDA license. MDOP is an annual device-based add-on subscription for SA customers or those that have SA rights through the Virtual Desktop Access (VDA) license (see the section Licensing Windows for VDI Desktops on page 06). Organizations can use App-V to stream applications to PCs that connect to the VDI, to the VMs, or to both. For more information about adding MDOP to your SA subscription, see Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) page of the SA website. System Center Configuration Manager Configuration Manager provides a comprehensive management solution for VDI to streamline provisioning and operations. Not only does it provide a complete solution for managing the VDI infrastructure, it also provides asset, application, usage, and desired-configuration management for desktops physical or VDI across the entire organization. Similarly, Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager enables IT to configure and deploy new VMs and manage VDI from a central console. It offers end-to-end capabilities like planning, deploying, managing, and optimizing VDI. Organizations can license Configuration Manager through Configuration Manager SA, which Core CAL and ECAL include. Also, by transitive property, Configuration Manager SA includes a Virtual Machine Manager CML, enabling customers to use Virtual Machine Manager to centrally create and manage VMs. Organizations can license Configuration Manager through Configuration Manager SA, which Core CAL and Microsoft Enterprise CAL (ECAL) include. Also, by transitive property, Configuration Manager SA includes a Virtual Machine Manager Client Management License (CML), enabling customers to use Virtual Machine Manager to centrally create and manage VMs. For more information about licensing Configuration Manager, see the System Center homepage.

7 06 Licensing Windows for VDI Desktops Traditionally, organizations license Windows client operating systems such as Windows 7 through original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and full packaged product (FPP) licenses. However, these licenses do not permit the flexibility that VDI requires, such as: Access rights to VMs running Windows in the data center The ability to move VMs across multiple server and storage devices The ability to create and destroy VMs on demand There was a need for a simple licensing model that would satisfy the wide range of VDI architectures and technologies that exist today and will exist in the future. Therefore, Microsoft developed a new licensing model for Windows Licensing Windows for VDI Desktops Figure 2 Licensing Windows for VDI SA, VDA, and Windows Intune help simplify licensing Windows for VDI. They offer access rights to VMs running Windows in the data center, the ability to move VMs across multiple server and storage devices, and the ability to create and destroy VMs on demand. Qualifying OS License Windows Upgrade + SA License Professional Windows Intune License Virtualization Rights Windows VDA License

8 07 in a VDI: Organizations license it for each device that accesses the VDI desktops, rather than per Windows installation on VMs in the data center. BENEFITS OF SOFTWARE ASSURANCE AND VIRTUAL DESKTOP ACCESS This model simplifies ongoing license management for VDI. It provides the flexibility to architect almost any kind of VDI solution that customers want. At the same time, it aligns with Windows licensing for the rest of their organization. Figure 2 on page 06 shows three ways you can license Windows for VDI, and the following sections describe them in more detail. Organizations must license Windows for VDI regardless of the technology hosting it in the data center. For example, they will need SA, VDA, or Windows Intune licenses for Windows even if they are using a third-party VDI technology. Software Assurance SA is an annual device-based subscription that volume-licensing customers have the option to purchase for their PCs running Windows Professional SKUs or higher. SA includes VDA rights, giving those PCs the right to access VDI desktops running Windows. Additional SA benefits include support, training, and upgrade rights to the most recent version of Windows (i.e., the Enterprise edition). Another benefit of SA is the right to repurpose a PC as a thin client using Windows Thin PC, reducing management and improving security at the VDI endpoint. SA also provides the right to run Windows on local VMs by using client hypervisor technologies. You can learn more about SA for Windows client at the Software Assurance website. SA and VDA provide organizations with several key benefits, including: Windows Enterprise edition Organizations can take advantage of the many benefits of the Enterprise edition of Windows (e.g., Windows 7 Enterprise) for their VDI desktops or for their access PCs. For more details, see the Windows Enterprise homepage. Roaming use rights The single primary user of the SA or VDA licensed device can use a non-corporate device (e.g., a personal device or a public computer) to access his or her VDI desktop without any additional licensing. This allows organizations to be more flexible without incurring additional licensing costs. However, in order to invoke the roaming use rights: The user must be the primary user of an SA or VDA licensed device, and the device cannot be shared. The user must use a non-corporate device to access the VDI desktop. The non-corporate access device must be outside the corporate domain. A personal device used within the corporate domain needs an additional VDA license. Upgrade and downgrade rights Organizations can upgrade to the latest version of Windows or use earlier versions of Windows as necessary. They can ensure that they are always on the most secure, efficient, and current version of Windows for their VDI desktops and PCs. Concurrent VM access SA and VDA customers get rights to access up to four VDI desktops concurrently. SA customers can also access up to four local VMs by using client hypervisor technologies. Other benefits of SA and VDA include training vouchers, 24x7 support, and 90-day reassignment rights for licenses.

9 08 Virtual Desktop Access VDA licensing is the recommended license for VDI access devices that do not qualify for SA. VDA provides organizations with the ability to license Windows for use via devices that do not traditionally come with a Windows license, such as thin clients, smartphones, and tablet devices. Organizations can also use VDA to license devices that the organization does not own, such as employees home PCs and contractor devices. VDA licensing is the recommended license for VDI access devices that do not qualify for SA (e.g., thin clients, smartphones, employees home PCs, and contractor PCs). With a VDA license, organizations can deploy Windows 7 Enterprise on their VDI desktops, and those desktops get all of the SA benefits (e.g., 24x7 support). Additionally, all SA and VDA devices get roaming rights that enable the single primary user of the licensed device to access his or her VDI desktop from a non-corporate (e.g., personal or public) device outside of the corporate network. For more information about VDA, see Windows Virtual Desktop Access on the Software Assurance website. Windows Intune Windows Intune provides organizations with the tools and technologies to manage and secure their PCs in the cloud. It also provides customers with SA rights for each covered PC, including VDA rights. PCs covered with Windows Intune can access a VDI desktop without any additional licensing. For more information about Windows Intune, see the Windows Intune homepage. Windows Intune provides customers with SA rights for each covered PC, including VDA rights. PCs covered with Windows Intune can access a VDI desktop without any additional licensing.

10 09 VDI Suite For customers that have very simple VDI requirements, Microsoft has created the VDI Suite license bundle. It is a subscription-based license bundle that provides the following licenses: An RDS CAL that s restricted to deploying VMs only (no session virtualization) A CML for Configuration Manager that s restricted to Virtual Machine Manager only With the VDI Suite, customers can deploy VM-based desktops but not sessionbased desktops. In addition to the VDI Suite, SA or VDA is still required for each client-access device. MDOP is an optional add-on for desktops covered by SA. VDI Suite is a subscription-based license bundle that offers simplified licensing and an excellent value. The VDI Suite offers the following benefits: Simplified licensing Along with VDA or SA, the VDI Suite provides a simple way to license small-scale, simple VDI deployments. Excellent value The VDI Suite provides an in-box solution for lowcomplexity environments. It is significantly less expensive than competitive offerings. For more information about licensing the VDI Suite, see Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure page on the Windows Enterprise website.

11 10 Licensing Scenarios The following sections provide examples of VDI licensing scenarios. Adventure Works Adventure Works has 100 PCs and 100 thin clients at one location. The company wants to provide a full VDI stack for all of its 150 employees. Figure 3 illustrates the licenses that Adventure Works requires for its VDI implementation. Each device accessing VDI desktops requires licenses for the server and management infrastructure (i.e., an RDS CAL, Windows Server CAL, Adventure Works 100 Windows Upgrade + SA License 100 Windows VDA License 100 PCs 100 Thin Clients Figure 3 Adventure Works example Each device accessing VDI desktops requires licenses for the server and management infrastructure (i.e., an RDS CAL, Windows Server CAL, Configuration Manager CML, and MDOP license). SA provides virtual desktop rights for each of the PCs, and VDA provides virtual desktop rights for the thin clients

12 11 Configuration Manager CML, and MDOP license). SA provides virtual desktop rights for each of the PCs, and VDA provides virtual desktop rights for the thin clients. Southridge Video Southridge Video has 100 employees that will use thin clients at work and their own PCs at home to access their VDI desktops. The company also has 50 contractors that will use their own PCs to access VDI desktops. Figure 4 describes the licenses that Southridge Video requires for its VDI implementation. Each device accessing VDI desktops requires licenses for the server and management infrastructure (i.e., an RDS CAL, Windows Server CAL, and Configuration Manager CML). VDA provides virtual desktop rights for the Southridge Video 100 Windows VDA License 100 Thin Clients 50 Windows VDA License 50 Contractors Figure 4 Southridge Video example Each device accessing VDI desktops requires licenses for the server and management infrastructure (i.e., an RDS CAL, Windows Server CAL, and Configuration Manager CML). VDA provides virtual desktop rights for the companyowned thin clients and contractor-owned PCs. Users home PCs do not require any additional licensing because VDA provides roaming use rights

13 12 company-owned thin clients and contractor-owned PCs. Users home PCs do not require any additional licensing because VDA provides roaming use rights. Contoso, Ltd Contoso, Ltd has a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) that already covers its PCs with SA. The company also has Core CAL and Enrollment for Core Infrastructure (ECI). It wants to deploy VDI for its 500 employees, and it wants to use Windows Thin PC to repurpose its PCs as thin clients. Figure 5 shows the licenses that Contoso, Ltd requires for VDI. Because the company s PCs already have SA, it does not need any additional licensing for Windows Thin PC or VDI. Also, because it already has Core CAL, it does not need any additional Configuration Manager CMLs or Windows Server CALs. The company needs only to purchase the additional RDS CALs for VDI. Contoso, Ltd 500 PCs Repurposed as Thin Clients Figure 5 Contoso, Ltd example Because the company s PCs already have SA, it does not need any additional licensing for Windows Thin PC or VDI. Also, because it already has Core CAL, it does not need any additional Configuration Manager CMLs or Windows Server CALs. The company needs only to purpose the additional RDS CALs for VDI. 500 Woodgrove Bank Woodgrove Bank is embracing the consumerization of IT by adopting VDI. As a pilot, the company is allowing 100 employees to bring their non-windows tablets to work. Not only will Woodgrove Bank deliver VDI desktops to these

14 13 devices, but it will also allow employees to access their VDI desktops from their home PCs. Figure 6 shows the licenses that Woodgrove Bank requires for its consumerization pilot. Each device accessing VDI desktops requires licenses for the server and management infrastructure (i.e., an RDS CAL, Windows Server CAL, and Configuration Manager CML). VDA provides virtual desktop rights for the employee-owned non-windows tablets. Users home PCs require no additional licensing because VDA provides roaming use rights. Woodgrove Bank 100 Windows VDA License 100 Non-Windows Tablets Figure 6 Woodgrove Bank example Each device accessing VDI desktops requires licenses for the server and management infrastructure (i.e., an RDS CAL, Windows Server CAL, and Configuration Manager CML). VDA provides virtual desktop rights for the employeeowned non-windows tablets. Users home PCs require no additional licensing because VDA provides roaming use rights

15 14 Summary Microsoft VDI is a set of integrated products that deliver end-to-end virtualization from the data center to end users. Depending on the architecture, a VDI deployment might need the following licenses: Hyper-V Licensed with Windows Server 2008 R2 or with the free edition. RDS Licensed for each access device with an RDS CAL. Many enterprises might already own licenses for Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, MDOP, Configuration Manager, and the Windows client through SA. Those organizations are ready to deploy the full VDI solution by simply adding an RDS CAL for each access device or user. MDOP Licensed for each access device as an add-on subscription for SA. Configuration Manager (with Virtual Machine Manager use rights) Licensed with Configuration Manager SA, which Core CAL and ECAL includes. SA or VDA Licensed for each device connecting to the VDI desktops. Many enterprises might already own licenses for Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, MDOP, Configuration Manager, and the Windows client through SA. Those organizations are ready to deploy the full VDI solution by simply adding an RDS CAL for each access device or user.
