hi, i have installed a virtual environment for a customer.

i installed;

2x AD Controllers (windows server 2012)
1x SQL Server ( SQL Web 2014)
2x RDS Server ( windows server 2012)
1x File Server (windows server 2012)


1. my customer has 35 users connecting to that RDS server for working in office and small sql database use. Do i need 2 RDS servers and use load balancing?

2. if i do load balancing then i use "user profile disks"? and where do i place this disks?
3. my customer needs a file server. i installed a regular windows server to use a file host. is this ok or do i best install some kind of nas? and what to use then?
