We have a MS Server 2012/2016 RDS Farm with anywhere from 60-100ea users at one time.

- Current Farm has 10ea host servers (12vcpu & 56gb RAM per server) with a gateway/license server and web server frontend.

- We're getting 75ea new users in 30 days. The current load already pushes the resources assigned to the servers. I'm tryin to find out what's best practice/# users per host server/etc.

I need to either build the existing Farm out horizontally - or build an additional Farm.  Which direction would be the best/correct way to go considering #users and existing Farm?
