RD Connection Broker
RD Connection Broker used to aggregated view of RemoteApp programs,session-based desktops, and virtual desktops to users.
RD Connection Broker supports load balancing and reconnection to existing sessions on virtual desktops, Remote Desktop sessions, and RemoteApp programs accessed by using RemoteApp and Desktop Connection. RD Connection Broker also aggregates RemoteApp sources from multiple Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) servers that may host different RemoteApp programs.
To configure which RemoteApp programs and virtual desktops are available through RemoteApp and Desktop Connection, you must add the RD Connection Broker role service on a computer running Windows Server 2008 R2, and then use Remote Desktop Connection Manager (RD Connection Manager).
Allows users to reconnect to their existing sessions in a load-balanced RD Session Host server farm. This prevents a user with a disconnected session from being connected to a different RD Session Host server in the farm and starting a new session.
Enables you to evenly distribute the session load among RD Session Host servers in a load-balanced RD Session Host server farm.
Provides users access to virtual desktops hosted on RD Virtualization Host servers and to RemoteApp programs hosted on RD Session Host servers through RemoteApp and Desktop Connection.
