Microsoft is finally (publically) talking about Terminal Server on Hyper-V.
Please note that it isn’t Terminal Server anymore, but “Remote Desktop Services”. This is closer to the way that Citrix talks about desktops and delivery of desktops and applications.
However, in this case it is rather confusing as Remote Desktop Service (without the s) is what has been referred to as the server side of RDP (the protocol) or the remote desktop client. Just remember, MSFT uses RDP all over the place now. If it is remote, RDP is involved.
Enough of that, here is the RDS Team blog post I am referring to:
And a snippet:
Running WS08 Terminal Server as a virtualized guest under Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V
One question that the RDS team is asked is whether running Terminal Server virtualized is supported and recommended. To answer this question we’ve recently conducted some performance testing of this configuration using WS08 Terminal Server running as a guest on Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V. To answer the first part: this is a supported scenario.
