Are There Any Alternatives to Windows Terminal Servers 2003/2008

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!

I agree, scheduled events is the way to go. Terminal server is just a lot of overhead if that all your using it for.

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.

psexec?  Run the scheduler on the command line.  You can script them.

powershell? Same thing.  You can run scripts.

Do you need a gui?  There's a list:
