Microsoft puts Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services to the test

Testing its own wares is Microsoft, which has posted up a white paper about its project to deploy Windows Server 2008

Terminal Services in four separate locations inside Microsoft. The project is now being extended to include Microsoft's IT production environments. According to Nick MacKechnie, a senior technical account manager at Microsoft New Zealand, writing in his blog: "The environment acts as a SSL-based remote access solution and MSIT was able to create a scalable remote access solution that is accessible by using HTTPS connections from any location worldwide. Additionally, user experience enhancements in Windows Server 2008 improved the end-user experience when using Terminal Services."
