  • terminal server vs windows VDI

    For anyone who runs remote workspace/VDI scenarios, just wondering waht the preferred choice is out of a traditional terminal server setup compared to a VDI environment - like having a windows 7 VM for each user?

    Just wondering what the advantages and disadvantages of each are.

    You tend to have to use both and depends on requirements. To get more users on your hardware, use RDSH servers where supported. Keep in mind that not all applications or hardware will necessarily be supported in VDI or RDSH. VDI is good for allowing users local administrator access should it be needed and dedicate it to them. In some cases, VDI would be needed for other requirements such as applications. A VDI solution tends to require more memory and CPU.

      Thanks very much. That's exactly what I wanted to know!
