The Dell Wyse Solutions Engineering group has partnered with VMware’s Software-Defined Storage team to produce an extensive whitepaper detailing the performance of Virtual SAN running Horizon with View on specific Dell platforms. Virutal SAN configurations using two different hardware platforms are documented, with performance results from multiple differing configurations based on SSD and disk group displayed. The paper details results from the following platforms.
Virtual SAN on the Dell PowerEdge R720
- Standard: Each host with one SanDisk 400GB SLC SSD for one diskgroup with 6 HDD.
- Value: Each host with up to three 200 GB SSD SATA Value MLC (Intel S3700) with up three disk groups and 12 HDDs.
- Login VSI was used to test performance for each of these configurations, with workload and operations performance results provided for each configuration.
Virtual SAN on the Dell PowerEdge C6220 II
- High density platform that encompasses four nodes in a 2U enclosure.
- VMware View Planner was used to validate performance of this platform up to 100 desktops per node, for 400 desktops in a 2U high density enclosure.
