Microsoft has published guides for deploying RemoteFX. RemoteFX is a new Windows Server 2008 R2 feature that is added with Service Pack 1 (currently a pre-RTM RC release). It allows a Windows Server 2008 R2 server to virtualise a graphics card (GPU). That means that Remote Desktop Services (VDI and Session Hosts aka Terminal Servers) can use a host server’s GPU to process high quality graphics, and stream them down to a “dumb” terminal. Citrix is also including support for this in their Dazzle.
