2008 R2 RDS Infrastructure Guidance

Last Modified: 2016-02-08
We are investigating setting up an RDS server with 20 user CALs.
The question I have is... can I set it up RDS on a new instance of 2008 R2, running in a Hyper-V VM if I dedicate enough resources to it?
My google-fu must be slipping, because I keep coming across conflicting answers.
We already have a big 2008 R2 enterprise server in our COLO with a lot of beef in it, so spinning up another VM with a ton of CPU and RAM is not that big of a deal.
Is this possible, or does it violate laws of physics?
Am I about to divide my server by zero?

Thanks in advance!
