VMware love stories: Sunray marries ESX

Unix Admin reports:

The entire sollution sits in two racks, we will scale to 450 DTU's, and we are in the process of installing a system to support another 1200 dtu's with this configuration. The limitation of the ESX Server is not CPU, but memory. Our Future plans are to migrate to 128GB of RAM, onece the memory becomes available. If you have any questions or want more specifics let me know. We run both LAN dtu's and remote. We have 500 remote Sun Rays that are BootP relayed to the mothership (Sun ray server) from switches. We have more than 100 dtu's in a building, I put local Sun Ray servers. The windows servers are allways remote and accessed via RDP.

And it all started with a RDP dilemma!
