Terminal Server (Remote Desktop) hardware sizing
Posted on 2013-11-27
Hello, I need to size a Remote desktop server for a client. I've not done this before, ergo I am unsure what is recommended server sizing for processors, spindles, RAM, NICs etc. What are the key metrics?
So, here are the requirements:
Server 2012R2 (running as a backup AD server and DNS)
Currently 30 Users in Active Directory, 25 will be TS users
Client OS: Vista, Win7, Win8
Users run Office applications, webbrowsing, and low overhead LOB apps.
May switch to thin clients or retask older machines
2TB user data (growing)
Thank you very much for your thoughts and recommendations.
