I have a customer who would like to add remote employees to his company, but would rather not get a computer for each new employee (would effectively need 2 per employee....one with the employee, one at the remote office to RDP into). VPN is not the right fit, as varying Internet connection speeds make some of their data heavy applications unusable, plus they need multiple locally installed programs.
All that to say, which RDS setup makes more sense for this growth? We are only talking a few people, so should I:
Buy a Windows Server 2008 with RDS and have people remote into the server, each with their own session?
Buy Windows Server and use Hyper-V to create Windows 7 VMs for them to log into?
Has anyone used RemoteApp, and would that be a better fit? My understanding is that RemoteApp does all the work remotely, so this would get around the VPN/Internet speed being the bottleneck during processing.
Any ideas/advice/experience would be much appreciated!
