2012 Remote Desktop Server - What do you need?
Posted on 2016-10-02
I want to make sure I am not missing something. I have a customer that is still running a 2003 Server and using it as a Terminal Server. I need to get them up to speed. I was looking at some prices for the software and came up with this (for a 5-user Termianl Server):
Microsoft Server 2012 R2 Standard: $800
5 - Server 2012 R@ CAL: $150
Microsoft Remote Desktop Services 5-user CAL: $870
That is $1,820 just in Microsoft software and licenses. Is that real? It that what I need to buy or can I cut back somewhere?
What about an alternative like TSPlus?
$1,820 (not including the cost of the server) seems a little excessive for a 5-user Terminal Server isn't it?
