Does any one have any real world (currently working) examples of the server hardware specs for a Windows Server 2008 R2 RD Session host (Terminal server) running full desktops for 30 Users.

On our server the users will be running Office 2010 & a couple of applications in their desktops.

Any information on server spec's and desktop session usage for a 30 user server that is trouble free would be greatfully received.

I have already read a few documents that discuss this including the microsoft one but would like some actual examples if possible.

Cheers

You will probably need at least 2x quad core processors, 12-16 GB of RAM and a GB NIC port.  I would purchase a server that you could easily upgrade the RAM in case you need more.  That should be a decent start.  Something you might want to consider is are there always going to be 30 users logged in or just 30 max.  The resources might not need to be as high if only a handful will be logged in at once.

A ref to a real world example would have been a bonus
