This product is a license for a Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop User CAL for Microsoft Windows Server 2016 (sold separately) that allows a device to connect to your server remotely.
Each user and device accessing a licensed Windows Server Standard, Datacenter or Multipoint edition require a Windows Server CAL, or a Windows Server and a RDS CAL.

Each Window Server CAL provides access to multiple licenses of Windows Server.
After the General Availability of Windows Server 2016, the business model for Standard and Datacenter editions will transition from processor-based to corebased licensing.

I have been using Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop - 5 Device CAL in production for a few months now. It has been going a lot better than expected, but then again it was in public preview for so long before official release, so it makes sense it'd be pretty solid out of the gate. In Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop - 5 Device CAL, I've had the pleasure of working with: 1. They typical infrastructure roles (ad ds, dns, dhcp, print, file, iis) 2. PKI in an international implementation 3. Nano server in several production environments 4. Shielded VMs 5. S2D, SS, and Storage Replica
We are actively rolling out Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop - 5 Device CALas it's launch coincides with our clients refresh cycle. Have had no issues whatsoever, installation and configuration are easier than ever. I have been playing around with tech previews for quite awhile prior to launch and have tested it extensively. Best MS Server product yet. I especially appreciate the large number of improvements and new features. Nested virtualization and hot adds are seriously hot but Linux Secure Boot for the win!
The feature of Hyper-V hot-add virtual hardware of Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop - 5 Device CAL will reduce downtime for the customer and is a huge time saver for the administrator. No more coordinating with the customer to get some downtime to just add memory. This can now be done while the server is running. Great job Microsoft, thank you for making the server administrator's job a little easier with this operating system. Not, when they fix the bugs, mibnor ones everything will be perfect
