I have been tasked with coming up with a solution for our company. We have magazine editors and graphic artists who work from home in different cities. They use indesign, photoshop and incopy along with acrobat etc. Due to the size of the files and the problems that come along with moving them around, we want them to be able to work in a central location.
In doing some research, does CS6 work well with Terminal Services? We are looking at 10 users, who remote in over the internet and work on an Indesign project at the same time. So we would need a beefy server to run this.
If you have any advice or questions let me know.
The main problem is the graphical requirements. CS6 Standard requires 256MB Video RAM and OpenGL 2.0. If you have a workstation you can dedicate to this, try installing Server 2008 R2 on there and giving it a shot.
You would need to set Server 2008 R2 up as a workstation - http://www.win2008r2workstation.com/ - and probably enable Aero with Remote Desktop - http://www.win2008r2workstation.com/enable-remote-desktop-with-aero/ - to get the OpenGL part to work.
Actually, I think I'm going to try just that on a workstation we have set up here.
