  • How to tune windows 7 for a remote VDI environment?

    I am setting up a test VDI environment with windows 7 and FreeNAS (which I am struggling with at the moment).

    Anyway, I notice that windows 7 seems to be quite a bit slower than server 2012 running as a terminal server (I appreciate these are totally different systems), and I was wondering if there are any best practices for tweaking windows 7 so that it runs well over a remote link?

    We use the Quest (now Dell) Optimiser tool. Be careful as by default, it disables the ability to search, so users will notice that when looking for emails in Outlook. Depends on what performance gains you need versus requirements.
