Our Services


Does your old RDS environment need some TLC? We'll help you get your existing environment up to the latest versions and standards so that your environment runs optimally.


We spend lots of time troubleshooting issues in RDS environments, both large and small. We concentrate on Microsoft native RDS deployments, and we also have experts to help you with lots of third party tooling. If you have a problem such as losing connections, sluggish performance, profile issues, and more, we are happy to help solve these problems. Contact us to set up a consult.

Monitoring and Reporting

RDS environments are not complete without monitoring. You will benefit from an in depth look at statistical usage data, error reporting and live session and server monitoring. We are happy to advise you on (and deploy) the tools we think give the most bang for your buck.

Design and Architecture

We don't just work with existing environments; we build them from scratch either in your data center or in the cloud. Need a highly available remoting environment in the cloud? Need an RDS deployment created in-house? We are your guys.

Cloud and Hybrid

Are you excited about the cloud? We are! If you want to know more about what you can accomplish in the cloud, lets get a proof of concept going for you. We work in Azure, AWS and GCP.

Environment Review

Think your environment could use some improvement? You might be right. We will take a deep dive into your remoting environment and give you all of our thoughts on how to optimize what you have.

Profile Management

User Profile Disks are deprecated. FSLogix is now Microsoft's user profile management solution. We can help you setup and test and tweak FSLogix to suit your needs.


Need multifactor authentication added to your RDS environment? No problem. We work with Azure MFA and Duo to further secure your environment.

RDS Gurus brought our RDS environment into a graceful state. They worked along side us, with great communication and complex problem solving skills. Our requirements were met and adjustments were made as needed in a timely manner. I highly recommend RDS Gurus if you need any help at all with your remote desktop servers.

Shane M. - IT Infrastructure ManagerJinny Beauty Supply Inc.

"Tech Plus Consulting" quote="I worked with Claudio at RDS Gurus and I must say I am impressed! He really knows his stuff and was not only able to solve our complex AWS infrastructure issues but also patiently teach us too. We had spent hours with AWS Premier Support and were going in circles. We kept being told to buy more resources, scale-up servers, and our bills kept going up and up out of control. That's when a colleague recommended Claudio. We got in touch and within just a 30 min consultation were able to understand the problem and the solution RDS Gurus could implement. The fix was re-designing a good deal of cloud infrastructure, We had a very limited budget and Claudio was able to work creatively with us teaching my staff how to set stuff up, then connect and audit our work further advising and providing additional script examples and instruction. I would not hesitate to work with RDS Gurus in the future, in fact, the next major project we do we plan to budget for their involvement."

Chris Stovel - CEOTech Plus Consulting

RDS Gurus was nothing short of amazing, they helped us figure out multiple issues and deploy solutions in a timely and cost-effective manner. Additionally, Kristin and her team assisted us with deploying FSLogix and migrating off user profile disks. I would highly recommend RDS Gurus to anyone needing assistance with FSLogix, RDS or WVD.
