We run Acrobat and Acrobat Reader on multiple Terminal Servers with 40 to 60 users each. Terminal Servers are running Windows 2016.
Multiple instances of RdrCER.exe start when a user opens a document and attempts various functions (eg, Share File). For example, with a single document open, I have 5 instances of RdrCEF open, consuming between them 175MB RAM. RdrCEF instances can consume a significant percentage of CPU (eg 5% to 8%) per user, which when multiplied by the number of users has a severe impact on Terminal Server performance. 

What can be done to improve Acrobat performance on Terminal Servers?
