I recently set up a 2008 R2 server with remoteapp to test it out. The intent was to use it to host one application that maybe 6 users (at most) would access. Figuring this was a pretty good solution I started looking into the licensing.
I received a quote for $10,000 for the server license and $100 for each CAL.
We could have handled the CALs but the server license price killed the project. Talk about prohibitive.
I guess my question is: Is this MS pricing for real? And if so, is there a work-around?
