You can host your Remote Desktop Hosting Server with either a virtual
server or a dedicated server.
Virtual servers are a good choice for smaller companies who have 10 or fewer users who do not require a lot of disk space.

A dedicated server for remote desktop hosting is a better option for companies who need more users accessing the server, more disk space or companies who need to host applications that require more powerful hardware.

What is Remote Desktop Services? It is the new name for Terminal Services also known as RDP Hosting.
Remote Desktop Services enables multiple users to login to a single server where they
can access and run applications and programs. Remote Desktop Services runs on the
Windows Server family of operating systems. Users use remote desktop to access
applications on the server. They can connect from a windows computer or apple device. The users can share the programs and data on the server. Users can also be restricted from seeing each others data when required.
A very common question is can I print from a remote desktop server to my local printer(s). Yes you can. Many years ago there was an issue printing to local printers but not any more.
An example might be employees of a company logging into a remote desktop/terminal server to access
their QuickBooks software. Or to access their desktop on the server to access a Microsoft Office application.
Another example would be logging into the terminal server to run a custom application
written in Microsoft Access or any number of other applications.
Uses include: Hosting desktops, remote users access to corporate applications,
mobile users, custom application hosting, data intensive applications, application developmnet.
What is a Remote App? Sharing remote desktop applications individually.
A Remote App is an application which is running on a remote desktop server but appears to be running locally on the client machine. The difference for the end user is they do not login to the Server and see a Hosted Desktop, rather they login to what looks like a local application on their desktop.
Why would you run an application as a remote app? Several reasons including security. Running as a remote app prevents the end users from accessing the server's other applications, files and settings.
How many users have inadvertently shut down a server rather than logging off?
A remote app also prevents users from compromising a server by inadvertently
downloading a virus while surfing the web.
Many companies offer their applications via Remote App to simplify delivery. This is also known as offering an application as a SAAS offering (Software as a Service).

Benefits of Terminal Services - Central Management - Reducing Cost
Having users login into a central server to access programs simplifies many tasks
since the applications are only installed once on the server rather than being installed
on each user's computer. This would apply to installing applications,
updating applications, backing up data.
Terminal Services is also great for applications which require a lot of bandwidth
and processing power. Many applications do not perform well when accessed
over the internet but they do with a hosted terminal server because all of the processing
is happening on the server with the user only viewing the screen. A single
user on a 28.8 kb dial up account will have good performance. This means a
dial up user who uses a hosted terminal server can surf the web and access applications
at the speed of the terminal server's high speed internet connection.
Benefits of hosting your Terminal Server in a datacenter
Datacenters increase reliability and uptime because they have redundancy in: internet
connections, power and ups systems. Each server is leveraging millions of
dollars in infrastructure. Our SLA (Service Level Agreements) provide 100%
uptime guarantees for Power and Network connections. Most offices have 1 internet
connection and datacenters have many connections blended together to provide 100%
Controlled Environment and Security - Datacenters are staffed 24x7 for remote hands
in case any server needs to be touched. There are multiple levels of security
including locked doors, cabinets and video surveillance. The environment is
also controlled to regulate the temperature and moisture content of the air.
