I would suggest a UAT test on a smaller group or pilot deployment. Once you do a test run on the pilot deployment, then it should be rolled out for a larger base of users. In terms of overall experience, I rate the solution eight out of 10.

We are using a lot of Microsoft technologies. We have also tested their virtual desktop on Azure. I would rate Microsoft Remote Desktop Services an eight out of ten.

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to first ensure that the network is set up properly. The applications need to be set up properly because if the applications are being used on-premises, but the virtual machines are stored in the cloud, then you will incur additional charges for accessing them. This is a good solution, although it is still new compared to some other remote desktop services that have been out there for a very long time. It still has room for improvement such as accessing the microphone for Android remote access. Because of this, using it on an Android device may not be the best choice. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would rate Microsoft Remote Desktop Services a seven out of ten. In the next release, there should be one management console to manage all of the servers and rules. That would be a good improvement. It also needs a better tool for monitoring. We need to test the user experience.

My advice for anybody who is considering this solution is that it is really easy to set up and it can be deployed in an urgent manner, depending on the environment. If you need remote access and do not have the expertise, yet it is an emergency situation, then this could be a great product. If you're looking for a good end-user experience and you're concerned about all of the features, then Microsoft does not have all that VMware does. It can do almost everything, but there are some features that it does not support. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

We use a VPN between sites to provide our own security. Overall, it is an excellent tool that works great and I would recommend it. The most important thing is to update and improve the security protocols. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Remote work is getting bigger and bigger and we are searching for a new solution that is more secure and provides more remote access features. This is a good solution but Microsoft is not number one in the market for VDI. I would recommend it for a small to medium-sized business, but not for an enterprise-level company. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

I would not recommend going with this solution because I wouldn't recommend going for a big enterprise setup. I would rate it a four out of ten. In the next release, they should develop better support for remote desktops for alternative platforms. It's really lacking consistency. If I have to support terminal server clusters and I have to do change management on the big cluster, then I actually run into a lot of issues both on the Microsoft Remote Desktop as well as Citrix. They should provide a consistent user experience. It's a pain to roll out changes into a different mode of the cluster and to propagate them over multiple modes. I end up in a situation where a portion of my users get the changes and the other portion doesn't.

It's a good solution, and especially if you already have Microsoft running then it's probably one of the better solutions to choose from. I am not sure whether it's the best future cross-platform solution when we are running multiple workstation environments with different platforms. I am really happy with Microsoft Remote Desktop Services in our current environment. We have no issues at the moment. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
