Can you help me with my capacity planning?
How reliable is it to run thin clients such as Citrix XenDesktop over the WAN. I am designing an IT solution where the client will have his desktop hosted and managed remotely as a service. The WAN connection will most likely be a cable connection with 40 Mbps. I remember a SunRay thin client solution pushing a solid 10 mbps of LAN traffic and this was with 50+ simultaneous users so I don't anticipate bandwidth to be an issue. I anticipate using Citrix XenDesktop however I am not the best at capacity planning. I plan on getting a box with one or two of the newest I7s and 32 GB of RAM. How many users can I reliably fit onto this?
