I wonder if anyone can give me some guidance I am looking to put in place a windows 2008 terminal server for 15 users all using HP thin client hardware but I'm concerned about getting the specification of the server hardware and also the local and remote site bandwidth to be adequate and not risk performance issues from occurring.
The terminal environment core applications required and that users will use will be Microsoft Office 2007, Sage Accounts (1 user) and Microsoft CRM front end client for all users but not at same time (SQL of CRM system is on separate server)
The server specification I am currently thinking is Dual 2.26Ghz quad core Xeons, 12GB RAM, 15K drives will this be enough spec?
Local and remote site bandwidth requirements: - We have a remote site of 4-5 users will an 8MB downstream 512K upstream ADSL line be enough? At the local site where the TS will be hosted from a 2MB SDSL is being used. Will this bandwidth be adequate enough, I have read a few scary articles about TS printing at remote sites being slow could this be a real issue based on this bandwidth spec?
