Do Microsoft offer any guidance or recommendations in terms of server resources required for terminal services servers? In terms of CPU, Memory etc. Or if they don’t, where would you as a VMWare admin, creating new VM terminal services servers start to identify required resources?
As a general estimate figure, for a terminal services server that supports 50 concurrent users, what kind of resources would you consider to be a bare minimum?
Also do Microsoft issue any advice in a remote desktop gateway architecture which supports 200 users, as to how many servers would be required to balance the load accordingly provided adequate performance levels, e.g.  a server:user ratio, would 1:50 ratio be a reasonable model, a 1:25 ratio be a reasonable model etc, more/less etc.
Finally which 'component' of the remote desktop gateway service handles the load balancing of which user is logged onto which server in your farm?
