Are there any? We use TS to run scheduled jobs and execute applications that we use for our DCs. Is there a better idea for this? Thanks!

Take the terminal server out of the equation and run the apps and scheduled tasks from the Server OS itself or use a workstation dedicated to the process. You could do both still in VM if you are currently doing VM for the terminal server.
