Hi Experts

I am looking to run sage 200 on a server which will be accessed by 15 people. I plan to setup a server 2012 standard server, but im not sure if I can just run the application on the server and setup users so they connect directly to the server over a rdp connection and then just lock their profile so they can only access the program and not the desktop, as I would have done in the past with terminal services. Or do I need to install hyper v on the server and setup a vm which each user would connect to? also what type of licenses would I need for this type of setup?

Which route depends on what Sage supports and what licensing you've bought. Terminal services licensing is usually more expensive, but return on investment cokes in overall maintenance and hardware costs. Running 15 VMs takes a beefy server.

Licensing windows also changes based on which model you choose. RDS licensing is pretty much the same as it has been since 2000. You'll need RDS CALs. There is some infrastructure cost as some minor changes have occurred (RDS in 2012 really wants Active Directory, not standalone, and even single server deployments benefit from a connection broker.) VDI (multiple client VMs) is very quirky and expensive to license, but is more compatible with some applications and more flexible.

So both are options. But end goals and budget and knowledge matter.
