Server 2012 RDS... Session Based or VDI deployment


  • Hi,

    There are two way of deploying remote desktops:

    Shared hosted- > One big Windows Server 2012 server with Remote Desktop Services enabled that will accept multiple sessions simultaneous. Apps running on this platform must support Mulit-user enviroments. Depending on hardware resources 100 to 200 sessions per server are possible

    VDI -> Virtual Machine running Windows 7 or Windows 8 that the users connect to.  Usually you can host somewhere between 30-50 VM's on a big server.

    There are many reasons why you would choose any of these solutions. The use case or business case and requirements can determine the right choice.
