Capacity planning for RDS (specifically RemoteApp)


  • We have been tasked with a deployment of RDS after a successful pilot of a single machine deployment. The requirements are as follows:

    • 24/7 Availability (this goes without saying)
    • 100 concurrent users
    • Initially, web based applications and possibly server utilities (ADUC, GPMC, etc) published as RemoteApps.
    • We will be doing this on Server 2012 R2 most likely, but at least 2012.

    From what I have read so far I think we need to plan for at least 2 Connection Brokers for the Active/Active Broker config) and the associated SQL Server, but I am unclear on how many session hosts we might need.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction from here? Should I use something like MAP or is there another tool that would be better? The MAP scenarios seem to focus on VDI deployments and not RDS.
