I would like to implement a very fast Windows Vista 64-bit workstation that will run a demanding AutoCAD application. The preferred platform is MS Vista Business 64-Bit on an Intel I-7 (gaming) platform. Using this combination of software and hardware the workstation supports 8 CPUs and up to 16GB of RAM. I would like to share this system between multiple users but (for licensing compliance) only allow 1 concurrent user at a time. I have confirmed that it is possible to support this scenario using the native RDP (hosting) capabilities of Vista. Clients could connect as an administrator and control this workstation remotely accross a LAN one user at a time.
My concern is the apparent video performance bottleneck imposed by RDP client. Is there any superior way to support the proposed scenario other than what I've outlined. I am comfortable using VM Workstation 6.5 as well as VM ESXi but neither of these products will come even close to supporting the number of processors that a physical Vista machine is capable of supporting. Is there any other remote client software that offers super-fast video performance over a LAN other than RDP? Is PC Anywhere, for example, any faster?
Network Monitoring is essential to ensure that computer systems and network devices are running. Use PRTG to monitor LANs, servers, websites, applications and devices, bandwidth, virtual environments, remote systems, IoT, and many more. PRTG is easy to set up & use.
