Jure Jereb (2010) Remote desktop and applications: Implementation in the organization. EngD thesis.
Remote Desktop Services or terminal services present a Microsoft solution for multi-user environment in Windows server which allows its users an access to remote data and applications located on terminal servers. With the help of Remote Desktop Services users have access to terminal servers from a network of a company or through the Internet. Only the screen picture is transferred to its user, that is why such work does not demand a very efficient computer. The use of Remote Desktop Services also bring some advantages such as reduction of costs (there is not need for a constant upgrading of personal computers, favourable licensing), bigger reliability and accessibility (in the network we place a farm of servers so in case of problems with one of them users have access to all services, programmes and data), better security (all data are stored in a very safe central location – there is less possibility of losing data and on the other hand the creation of back-up copies is simplified), simpler maintenance (due to server farm upgrades of servers are simpler, it is easier to control and manage centrally located applications and users who have access to them). The purposes of this diploma thesis are: planning and implementation of the installation as well as the transition to the use of terminal servers' farm with the help of Microsoft server operating system Windows Server 2008 R2 and its Remote Desktop Services role. What follows after a successful installation of the farm is its introduction into a production network and the migration of the users to a new system. The first part of the thesis introduces a short presentation of the project and its demands, the description of suitable solutions or products that are available in the market and the reasons that had an influence on choosing the Microsoft solution. What follows is a detailed presentation of a chosen product or solution. The main part of the thesis deals with the precise description of the project in the company which involves all the procedures that had to be done in the process of installing the server farm and its implementation. There are mentioned all the upgrades and installations of hardware and software, system and security configuration as well as all the procedures of migration of the users and their profiles into a new system. The final part of the thesis is dedicated to the findings, advantages and disadvantages the installation and implementation of the new system have brought to its users and administators.
