    Hi all

    I have various clients connecting to a colo centre with RDS and have various branch sites. Some have requirements for better refresh rates than what RDS offers, so dont like using RDS. I feel remote fx is too expensive an option. Plus RDS suffers if there is bad copper.

    Just wondering what you guys do, or suggest with staff who do not want to work on an RDS all the time, but still want to make use of its benefits, e.g. when they leave the office and work from home. Im toying with a lot of different ideas and just seeing if there are more elegant ways of doing this.

    So I want some users to have the ability to work locally, but I would use either remote desktop published apps, or app-v to push to their desktops the apps that absolutely need a server to run, but other things like web browsing would be local.

    Things that need to be addressed though are the profiles would need to sync , so that when they get home, their desktop items, documents settings are all the same, so roaming profiles, UE-V? There would probably need to be a copy of data locally DFS with a local copy of their data drive, so data is snappy to access instead of over the WAN.

    Any better ways of doing this?
