Remote Desktop Session Host Capacity Planning in Windows Server 2008 R2
This capacity planning guide describes the most relevant factors that influence the capacity of a given deployment along with methodologies to evaluate capacity for specific deployments.
The Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) role service lets multiple concurrent users run Windows-based applications on a remote computer running Windows Server 2008 R2. This white paper is intended as a guide for capacity planning of RD Session Host in Windows Server 2008 R2. It describes the most relevant factors that influence the capacity of a given deployment, methodologies to evaluate capacity for specific deployments, and a set of experimental results for different combinations of usage scenarios and hardware configurations.
