Implementing Your Remote Desktop Services Design Plan

Updated: February 16, 2011

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Consider the following factors before you implement your design plan:

  • Complexity: The complexity of the scenario relative to other scenarios.

  • Cost: The initial setup and sustained cost of this scenario.

  • Fault tolerance: How the scenario supports the resiliency of the infrastructure, which ultimately affects the availability of the system.

  • Performance: How the scenario affects the performance of the infrastructure.

  • Scalability: The impact that the scenario has on the scalability of the infrastructure.

  • Security: Whether the scenario has a positive or negative impact on overall infrastructure security.

How to implement your Remote Desktop Services design by using this guide

The next step in implementing your design is to determine in what order each of the deployment tasks must be performed. This guide uses checklists to help you walk through the various server and application deployment tasks that are required to implement your design plan. Parent and child checklists are used as necessary to represent the order in which tasks for a specific Remote Desktop Services design must be performed.

Use the following parent checklists in this section of the guide to become familiar with the deployment tasks for implementing your organization's Remote Desktop Services design:

To implement Microsoft® RemoteFX™, use the checklists for deploying a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), or Remote Desktop Services with session-based desktops and perform the tasks for RemoteFX.
