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).
