Is Terminal Server Enough?

Posted on Updated on

Terminal Server 2003 can do a lot of impressive things:

·         Full color depth and resolution

·         All client platforms supported

·         RDP 5.2 is very thin

·         RDP virtual channels support clipboard, printer, audio, COM, and LPT mapping.

There’s still a lot that Terminal Server 2003 cannot do:

·         Application-level load balancing

·         Application publishing

·         Seamless windows

·         Auto web application interface

·         Load-balancing is network-based and limited to 32 nodes

·         Load-balancing requires the Enterprise Edition to really be effective

Third-party Advantages:

·         It’s not about ICA vs. RDP anymore

·         “Big four” advantages of third-party software

o   Load balancing

o   Seamless Windows

o   Application publishing

o   Web application interface

    pak, bener gak citrix itu bisa berfungsi sebagai pengatur lalu lintas data dalam sebuah sistem data storage ? (data center)
    sepengatahuan saya citrix adalah sebuah aplikasi yang memungkinkan client2 berjalan dengan bandwidth sempit dan ringan.

    thx infonya

    Dear Astri,
    Dengan menggunakan protocol ICA (Citrix) ataupun RDP (Windows 2003), performance bandwidth network semakin bagus karena data yang melalui network tsb dikompress. Tentu saja dengan demikian, lalu lintas data dalam external storage (DAS/SAN) semakin kecil.
