Hi experts, i have a question :
our company is tired to pay for a service (citrix) that is startiing to be very expensive (almost 50.000 for 150 license plus the software assurance) for publish our application, that's why i'm here asking if is possible tu publish an application that is installed and running in one of our main server that is working with windows 2003 enteprise edition due the 64 gigabyte of ram installed. It's impossible to use the RDP because lots of "luser" in our company. Is it possible to use in some way the terminal server service? We have a windows 2003 AD domain with more than 230 users.
Thanks in advace, please feel free to ask for more details.
Carlo.

You can't publish an app with Windows 2003 Terminal Services like Citrix does, but you can do it with Windows Server 2008.

To just publish a specific application, you have two potential approaches. Either App-V or TS RemoteApp. Both of these are Microsoft technologies, and they allow you to publish a specific application from a server.

TS RemoteApp requires Windows Server 2008. It is part of the new Terminal Services deployment in Server 2008. RemoteApp is included with Server 2008, but you need the appropriate Terminal Services CALs in order to run it.

App-V is part of System Centre and should run on Server 2003, but is probably too much of an overhead for what you require. It is a paid-for product.
