RDS vs VDI vs Remote App vs Godzilla!
Posted on 2014-02-20
Currently I am a huge fan of buying the Dell C10Le thin clients and setting up servers to host RDS sessions. For users who need only internet, Office and network printing, I find it simple, easy, clean, etc.
However, I want to make sure I'm giving good advice. So, which is better? RDS with my thin client solution, VDI or Remote App?
I know that with RDS I am keeping the desktop investment low as thin clients are less costly than desktops, don't have moving parts, users can't save stuff locally that gets lost when the hard drive crashes, etc...but am I better off buying desktops and doing VDI or maybe buying a thin client with a browser and doing remote app?
I guess I'm just looking to open a discussion on pros and cons of each and try and get some feedback from others.
