Does RDS get a dedicated storage or does it just have functions of a repeater

Ben Jeong 81 Reputation points


This is a page of the PDF file from the Remote Desktop Service documentation page. Sizing guildlines must mean that a RDS storage is given for users. Is it safe to believe that?

I'm looking for answers on whether RDS just acts as a repeater or a router to get access to applications or the internet.

    RD Session Host (RDSH) is the primary workload role, hosting Windows desktops and applications

    For on-premises deployments:

    Microsoft Azure for cloud deployments:
