Look into an equivalent cloud scenario

By using combined RDS (Remote Desktop Services) and Forefront UAG (Unified Access Gateway) organizations can make standard sets of desktops and applications available to employees anywhere, securely without the need to deploy hardware to all locations.

This can reduce the space and cost for remote locations, allowing employees to work where they want to and more flexibly. Consequently, reducing costs for office space, costs for running those offices, lower commute times and flexible working hours.

The resources on this page provide the information and tools that help with planning, deploying and configuring such scenario.
