"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In Windows Server 2012 R2, Remote Desktop Services role consists of couple of services but as a minimum you would need to install Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) service which turns a server into a "Terminal Server".
You can then run Remote Desktops (or session based desktops) or run remote programs. Depending on your environment you might need other roles and services as well.

For start, check this: Step by step WS 2012 R2 RDS
This is part one and from there you can go to part two as well.

I reccomend Tommy Patterson's article on Microsoft TechNet

A definite, not-to-miss reference is at TechNet Library, here, and for building your own lab, absolutely go here.

RDS is huge to answer in few paragraphs - had to point you onto these resources. But it would be a pity to miss these.

Hope it helps.
