Remote Desktop Hardware planning

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I'm looking into implementing a Remote Desktop services on Windows Server 2008 R2. I'm trying to get an idea of what kind of hardware I need with an eye toward the future. I'd like to support around 500 users. I have found some links from Microsoft talking about best practices and a list of where bottlenecks may occur but I would really love numbers. How many core per 10 users, how much ram, What type of Raid.
