Is it possible to have multiple Remote Desktop sessions for a single user at the same time?

This is possible, depending on the RDS configuration as we rely on these settings. For allowing concurrent user sessions you need to change the terminal server settings in the registry on the server itself. When a user is allowed to have multiple sessions, applications can be opened in separate windows/tabs. 

An explanation on how to do this can be found at:

Note: Integration credentials work the same with SSO like Microsoft does. You log in with an account and have access to all your applications via SSO. When logging in with a different account, you will be logged out from the previous session. You can only work with one identity at the same time. Example: you can use 1 integration sets to access different RDP servers with the same identity.
