VDI characterization on Virtual SAN
Finally, some of the best practices are presented:
VMware Horizon 6 delivers remote desktops and applications from a single platform. With Horizon 6, IT can deliver seamless applications and users can access their desktops or applications from anywhere on devices running Windows, Linux, MAC, iOS, and Android operating systems.
In this blog, we present the Horizon 6 RDSH Performance whitepaper that shows the performance of remote sessions (desktops and seamless applications) and the performance of the RDSH virtual machines, paying particular attention to the sizing of the Horizon 6 environment. The paper also reveals the competitive results of leading remote display network protocols. Finally, the paper presents some of the best practices to tune the RDSH server VM performance. All performance tests were run using the VMware View Planner 3.5 benchmark.
The setup, detailed results, and best practices can be found in the performance whitepaper provided below:
