Windows Server 2012 Remote Desktop Services | User & Device CALs
Windows Server 2012 Remote Desktop Services Overview:
Remote Desktop Services for Windows Server 2012 provides technologies that enable users to connect to virtual desktops, RemoteApp programs, and session-based desktops. With Remote Desktop Services, users can access remote connections from within a corporate network or from the Internet. The Remote Desktop licensing mode configured on a Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server must match the type of RDS CALs available on the license server. For more information, see Specify the Remote Desktop Licensing Mode on an RD Session Host Server.

There are two types of Remote Desktop Service CALs:
RDS Per User CALs
RDS Per Device CALs
The following table outlines the differences between the two types of CALs:
When Per Device licensing mode is used, and a client computer or device connects to an RD Session Host server for the first time, the client computer or device is issued a temporary license by default. When a client computer or device connects to an RD Session Host server for the second time, if the license server is activated and enough RDS Per Device CALs are available, the license server issues the client computer or device a permanent, RDS Per Device CAL.
An RDS Per User CAL gives one user the right to access an RD Session Host server from an unlimited number of client computers or devices. RDS Per User CALs are not enforced by RD Licensing. As a result, client connections can occur regardless of the number of RDS Per User CALs installed on the license server. This does not absolve administrators from Microsoft Software License Terms requirements to have a valid RDS Per User CAL for each user. Failure to have an RDS Per User CAL for each user, if Per User licensing mode is being used, is a violation of the license terms.
To ensure that you are in compliance with the license terms, make sure that you track the number of RDS Per User CALs being used in your organization and that you have a sufficient number of RDS Per User CALs installed on the license server to provide an RDS Per User CAL for each user that needs to connect to the RD Session Host server.
You can use the Remote Desktop Licensing Manager (RD Licensing Manager) tool to track and generate reports on the issuance of RDS Per User CALs. For more information, see Track the Issuance of Remote Desktop Services Per User Client Access Licenses.

This is only device or user Client Access License (CALs) and does not include the Windows Server 2012 or R2 OS License. Learn more about licensing.
Any RDS license server can host licenses from all previous versions of Remote Desktop Services and the current version of Remote Desktop Services. For example, a Windows Server 2016 RDS license server can host licenses from all previous versions of RDS, while a Windows Server 2012 R2 RDS license server can only host licenses up to Windows Server 2012 R2.
Unified administration experience – Administer your session and virtual desktop collections, configure your RemoteApp programs, manage your virtual desktops, and add servers to the deployment from one centralized console.
User personalization – User profile disks allow you to preserve user personalization settings across session collections and pooled virtual desktop collections.
Less expensive storage – Pooled virtual desktops can use local storage live migration between host computers. Personal virtual desktops can use storage located on network shares.
Automated pooled virtual desktop management – Deploy and manage pooled virtual desktops centrally by using a virtual desktop template. Any changes, such as application installation or security updates, are installed on the virtual desktop template, and the pooled virtual desktops are then recreated from there.
