Remote Desktop Services

Revision as of 09:55, 21 October 2016 by Jeffrey Lahaie (talk | contribs)


The Middlebury College Remote Desktop Services (RDS) cluster was created to allow for the running of applications or web pages that can't or shouldn't be run on a standard Middlebury desktop or laptop computer.

The infrastructure is created in such a way that it is redundant and can be scaled by adding more resources as necessary. Rather than replacing Servers when they reach end of life and having to connect to a new Server, we can replace Servers in the RDS Cluster without the need for changing the connection method.

The main reason behind providing this service now, is two of the existing Servers people connect to (Bethpage and Coal) have reached end of life and are no longer supported, so we need to retire them.

What Servers Are We Replacing?

Currently, the RDS Cluster is meant to replace Bethpage, Coal, and eventually Rosefinch. If you currently use any of those servers, you will nee do become familiar with the new service.
