What's keeping you from getting more from your terminal servers? Did you know, 
in most cases, CPU Utilization IS NOT the single biggest constraint to scaling 
up?! Get this free white paper to understand the real constraints & how to 
overcome them. SAVE MONEY by scaling-up rather than buying more servers.
