Office 365 and RDS round 3, Allowed!!!
Office 365 subscription users have won the battle, earlier than I expected, to have rights for Remote Desktop Services (RDS) or previously named Terminal Services.
Thanks to the new changes just published by Microsoft, Office 365 can now we deployed as well on RDS scenarios.
The text on the Product Use rights says the following:
“Each user may also use one of the five activations on a network server with the Remote Desktop Services (RDS) role enabled.” (PUR English Page 82, January 2013)
What does this mean? It means that Office can be installed with the MSI-based installation (MAK, KMS and Ad-based activation) required for RDS. Office can also be installed on Click-to-Run installation, with the built-in App-V foundation.
This allows clients to move to Office 365 licensing and benefit of all the features and serve thin clients, or any other RDS scenario.
Great news as it allows more flexibility.
One more reason to move to subscription what you used to buy on perpetual licensing…
