IBM eServer i5 520 run windows applications

Hello I am looking at IBM eServer i5 520 server. I was wondering can I store C# applications and have clients map to that server to run the programs?



Meaning I create a C# application then I store it on the ibm server. Now I install the .net framework on the clients pcs and then map to the folder where the application resides. Now the user would click on the C# application shortcut and it would run off the IBM server. Just like if I have a PC server, it would use the server processor, memory.....

Sounds like this question really belongs under programming or possibly networking.  I'm not very familiar with the .net framework, but I'm sure what you're trying to do is possible, maybe using RPC or something.

From a hardware point of view, this is no problem at all, that server is one of the
most powerful, commercial servers from IBM.
(Trust me, I've been working in their server team as well)

I would strongly recommend running Citrix XP on the server as this offloads the server and
also lets the users connect to a virtual desktop on the Metaframe Client and can there run whatever
applications you have shared resources for on the server/s.
You can via Citrix set-up several servers in a cluster and add additional in the farm whenever you need it.

Go to http://www.citrix.com for more information,
