Hello Remote Desktop Services, Goodbye Terminal Services

With the major launch of Microsoft Windows 2008 R2, Terminal Services is now renamed as Remote Desktop Services (RDS) to indicate additional functionality. The major addition is the support of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).

Terminal Server is now renamed as Session Host. Session Broker (in-built load-balancer) is now renamed Connection Broker. Presentation Virtualization (Present-V) has apparently been taken out of Microsoft dictionary - RDS RemoteApp is used in place. The term (Present-V) which you saw in my earlier posts can now be replaced with RDS RemoteApp instead.
