This paper describes a deployment that supports over 960 users—700 View linked-clone desktops and 260 RDSH desktop sessions—based on VMware Horizon® 6 Enterprise Edition, which includes VMware App Volumes™ and VMware Virtual SAN™. It is intended to help IT architects, consultants, and administrators involved in the early phases of planning, design, and deployment by offering a standard, repeatable, and highly scalable design that can easily be adapted to specific environments and requirements. The reference environment was subjected to rigorous performance benchmarking, workload simulation, and operations testing. Performance tests, including workload testing with VMware View Planner and View operations testing, were also performed on the hardware configuration. The results can be characterized as follows.
Andrea Nelson, Intel’s Director of Storage Marketing and Charles Fan, SVP, VMware, Inc. discuss the benefits of Virtual SAN, software-defined hyper-converged storage, and the value of cost-effective scalable enterprise storage to data centers.
A demo of a 64-node, 368 Terabyte Virtual SAN powered by Intel® SSDs, including the Intel® SSD P3700 and the Intel® SSD S3510. A strong case made for an all-flash Virtual SAN to support VMware Vsphere*.
Learn how Virtual SAN and vSphere can provide a complete, natively integrated platform consisting of compute, network, and storage resources that are easily isolated from the rest of the infrastructure.
This solution guide describes the deployment of VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes on EMC® VMAX3™ to solve backup and recovery challenges for virtualized databases and deploying vSphere Virtual Volumes for OLTP applications using Oracle Database 12c.
Virtual SAN Ready Nodes Hypervisor-converged Storage Systems Simplify Enterprise Scale-out Deployment
This document discusses an implementation of VMware Virtual SAN that supports the storage requirements of a VMware Horizon Virtual Desktop (VDI) environment. Although VDI was used to benchmark the performance of this Virtual SAN implementation, any application supported by ESXi 5.5 can be used.
