I can still plug directly with Microsoft management… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Citrix. Microsoft Remote Desktop Services is a more developed version of Citrix. I would recommend going for VMware.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Retrospectively, no, we selected Microsoft and used it. We are doing some research at the moment to see what we will do in the future for our next generation of infrastructure and renewal.
