Windows Server 2019 RDSH Max Connection Per Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am configuring 2 sets of Windows RDS using Windows 2019 Server:
    I can't seem to get clear answers on what the actual sizing guideline is and why 50 users is always the max.
    Am following this guideline https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/archive/blogs/iftekhar/rds-hardware-sizing-and-capacity-planning-guidance

    Can anyone advise me on how much can I get from 1 server if CPU/Memory and Fastest NVMe SSD for the below

    Server Hardware A
    100 Remote App Users
    Possible on 1 physical server ? Yes / No
    If No, why? ___

    Set Hardware B
    100 Remote Desktop Session Host Users
    Possible on 1 physical server ? Yes / No
    If No, why? ___

    I have read several sizing guide, and almost all seem to point to a maximum of 50 users per Windows Server

    I am using Windows 2019 Server and CPU and Core is not an issue.

    I am also using NVMe SSD based on PCIe 3.0

    And we are trying to get the right sizing to achieve 100 concurrent users on either RemoteApp and Remote Desktop.

    Where is the actual limitation factor? Is it the IOPS or is it the Windows OS that is the listing factor?
