need help in confirming hardwre will meet rdp specs
Posted on 2011-04-20
I have researched and tried to make a decision on hardware off of my research, but I am still not sure if the hardware we have chosen will be sufficient. The situation is this:
Company size 25 employees, approx. 18 always working remotely.
In order to control software licenses and use, the client is looking to have all remote users connect to the office (RDP Host) and use office and other software via this server.
Solution is as follows:
SBS 2011 Standard
Server 2008 R2 for Remote Desktop
Ideally on one server, ESXi or Hyper-V for the hypervisor and then SBS 2011 and 2008 R2 as VM’s
Now the worry is that the original quoted hardware will not be sufficient….or will it? Here is the original server build:
16GB 4x4GB, 1333MHz 1R UDIMM
2 x 500G 7K SATA,3.5,CB
