A Terminal Server (known as Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server on Windows 2008 and above) is a server that hosts Windows-based programs or the full Windows desktop for Remote Desktop Services clients. Users can connect to a Terminal Server to run programs, to save files, and to use network resources on that server. Users can access an RD Session Host server by using Remote Desktop Connection or on Windows 2008 and above by using RemoteApp.

Remote Desktop Connection Broker (known as Terminal Services Session Broker in versions of Windows prior to Windows 2008 R2) provides several functions: Allows users to reconnect to their existing sessions in a load-balanced Remote Desktop or Terminal Services Session Host server farm. This prevents a user with a disconnected session from being connected to a different server in the farm and starting a new session; Enables you to evenly distribute the session load among Remote Desktop Session Host servers; In Windows 2008 and above provides users access to virtual desktops hosted on Remote Desktop Virtualization Host servers and to RemoteApp programs.

RemoteApp is a technology available from Windows 2008 that enables you to make programs that are accessed remotely through Remote Desktop Services appear as if they are running on the end user's local computer. Instead of being presented to the user in the desktop of the Remote Desktop Session Host server, the RemoteApp program is integrated with the client's desktop. The RemoteApp program runs in its own window, can be dragged between multiple monitors, and has its own entry in the taskbar.
