Terminal servers allow you to make programs accessible to employees within a company, without having to install them on individual computers. This saves software licensing costs and centralises software update management. Terminal server hosting also enables administrators to monitor and maintain systems externally.
You can install LTSP (Linux Terminal Server Project) – a terminal server software – on any Linux server when you have root access. Since the resources required of the terminal server depend on the demands of the software, a dedicated server with enough CPU, RAM and storage space is best suited to this application.
