Microsoft Remote Desktop Server or Citrix Recommendations

Microsoft Remote Desktop Services or Citrix may be required if any of the following scenarios are true: 

  • Users are connecting over a WAN or VPN using the TempWorks Desktop client. 
  • Round-trip client/server latency does not meet Customer expectations. 
  • Remote users are connecting with a finite (or budgeted) amount of bandwidth.  
  • Remote Desktop Services/Citrix can allow more users to use that connection with better results (faster, lower latency) because more work is done on the Remote Desktop Services/Citrix computer rather than the remote client(s). 

Server Specifications (up to 25 concurrent users)
ProcessorMinimum 4 Cores
RAM24 GB
Disk ConfigurationAny redundant RAID configuration is acceptable
Operating systems and other requirementsSee System Requirements to Run Enterprise

If performance is not acceptable for this many users, reduce the number of users per Remote Desktop Services Server.
