I need to improve our TS solution
At the moment we only have about 40 terminals in the school, most of which are very rarely used and treated as very low priority.
We used to have two load balanced HP DL360 G4s, quite old but did the job. They died and due to the amount the terminals we're used a DL320G5 was setup in their place, on it's own with only 8GB of ram.
This has since proven to have been a bad idea as it's now DREADFULLY slow as it's starting to get used more and ore, no where near enough memory and no doubt the piddley processor in there is struggling too. I have it currently running Server 2008 32bit due to all our windows 7 machines being 32bit and software shortcuts reflecting that (we run a redirected start menu school wide) and i hate it as server 2008 pre R2 i don't like at all.....i won't go as far to call it **** as i'm sure it has it's upsides, i just haven't seen them.
The final issue is that we have no money left until april, so i'm looking to do what i can armed with a MSVL and two physical servers :p Not sure if the terminals themselves support anything different that could cause improvement, there pretty old though.
