I want to replace Windows terminal server mostly due to cost reasons license cost for 2100 users goes out of roof.

The end-user is all windows but I want a jump server that is UNIX based , I have some experience with VNC but I don't want options exists in UNIX to run a terminal services for 2100 users. Some of the basic requirement for such a setup be:-

  • use of browser to access web based application
  • Restrict or limit desktop application based upon user authorization.
  • Supporting concurrent users for about 1200 per server.

Please let me know how should I go about.

    Your question looks like something a boss would ask its IT team to begin a 1-2 year reengineering process that will involve writing hundreds of pages of impact and technical analysis. You just don't get to save money by saying so, you need a really huge amount of work to do this type of change. – Julie Pelletier Jan 27 '17 at 18:54

Applications run on the server with a terminal known as a thin client (also known as an X terminal) handling input and output." There were a variety of additional hits, such as:
