This is both a question and a topic for discussion, so…
I’m looking to get some feedback on anyone who is running Toad Data Point on Windows Server OS’s instead of Windows Desktop OS’s - i.e. Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2016 instead of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10.
We’ve entered in to the lifecycle refresh of our current automation hosts - two Dell OptiPlex desktops with Windows 7 - and we’ve been asked to consider migrating to virtual machines. While I’m comfortable with doing that, the problem is that our Virtual Infrastructure doesn’t allow Desktop OS’s on non-VDI instances - and VDI won’t work for us because it’s not persistent by design. So our only choice is our pick of Windows Server versions.
Unlike my typical approach of jumping into the deep end with both feet, I thought I would ask all of you if you’ve had any experience with this type of setup, virtual or physical, and if you’ve had any issues.
