The Server is the Key

When virtualizing hardware, virtual versions of computers and operating systems (VMs) are created and consolidated into a single, primary, physical server. hypervisor communicates directly with a physical server’s disk space and CPU to manage the VMsHardware virtualization, which is also known as server virtualization, allows hardware resources to be utilized more efficiently and for one machine to simultaneously run different operating systems.

A virtual machine is a computer file, typically called an image, that behaves like an actual computer.

Can perform all tasks just like on a real computer.

What else do I need to know?

domain

Domain Controller

A domain controller is a server that responds to authentication requests and verifies users on computer networks. Domains are a hierarchical way of organizing users and computers that work together on the same network. The domain controller keeps all of that data organized and secured. The domain controller (DC) is the box that holds the keys to the kingdom- Active Directory (AD).

AD

Active Directory

A server running the Active Directory Domain Service (AD DS) role is called a domain controller. It authenticates and authorizes all users and computers in a Windows domain type network, assigning and enforcing security policies for all computers, and installing or updating software. Active Directory uses Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) versions 2 and 3, Microsoft's version of Kerberos, and DNS.

Same as!

RDP Better than a Remote Desktop Application

Remote access applications are a light and fast solution to access a computer from a distance, they offer the ability to work the computer with ease, transfer documents or print them among others. The most commonly encountered difficulties are the size of the screens and the number of them. On the other hand, sharing the local components with the accessed computer is another difficult task, since it is more about accessing the remote ones.

Pros

  • View on Local Displays
  • Can use Local Printers
  • Need to validate against Server
  • RDP is available on all Windows PCs
  • RDP can be installed on iOS devices, and Android devices.

Cons

  • No Collaboration Allowed

Is a Personal Computer, but in the Cloud.

Run any application designed for Windows

Microsoft Store has nearly everything you could want for your Windows device, including the latest games, popular movies and TV shows, creativity software, apps, and more.

Bring your Microsoft Account

If you have an account with Microsoft, and you want to transfer it to your virtual machine, you just have to log in with it and voila, you will have all the settings, documents, images, videos and everything else in your virtual machine, ready and prepared for your enjoyment.

Manage your emails

You can manage your emails, and you can access them in the same way as on your personal computer, or as you used to at work, the interface of a virtual machine is 100% identical to a physical machine, in fact the entire operating system is identical to a physical machine, only the hard components are different because they are located on a server in the cloud.
