We are planning on moving one of our departments (about 60 people in 3 different states and growing) to a TS/RDS environment. I would like to be able to set up a farm with load balancing and the ability that no matter what server they log on to will still have the same desktop and applications installed. If we can get this working properly for the one department we would like to eventually move our entire firm to this environment (about 260 people).
Eventually we would like to put these servers in a co-lo with our SAN so that we can have minimal downtime and that everyone has a central location for evertyhing. Have all the servers load balanced, same desktop and apps no matter what server they log on to. right now if a user from one office goes to another office they have to have a profile setup and all the apps configured for them, etc. we tried roaming profiles but it didnt work out very well. We also have citrix but nothing is load balanced and if they log on to a diferent server the desktop and apps are all different. we would like to save on the cost of citrix.
I also see something called 2x but im not sure how that works with TS/RDS.
Any guidance on where to begin for what we would like to do or if its even possible?
