Welcome to PureRDS.org – the Home of Everything Related to Microsoft Remote Desktop Services and Azure Virtual Desktop
Welcome to PureRDS.org! This site is dedicated to the admins in the trenches who maintain pure Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) and Azure Virtual Desktop deployments, with few to little third-party add-ons. While Citrix often gets all the press for its XenApp / XenDesktop offerings, there is an ever growing community of small to medium sized shops who run Microsoft RDS only.
Windows Server 2012 introduced radical changes to Remote Desktop Services, so now more than ever Remote Desktop admins need an abundance of help with RDS and AVD, including the latest PowerShell scripts, hacks, management tools, and tricks to keep their farms up and running. Use the navigation menus up above and to your left to start leveraging all the resources this site has to offer.
