VSAN-VDIIt’s time for everyone to get up to speed with the latest and greatest VMware Virtual SAN Design and Sizing guidance for Horizon View Virtual Desktop Infrastructures. In this new white paper, Wade Holmes and I leveraged the previously provided guidance from the VMware Virtual SAN Design and Sizing white paper, and applied it to the Horizon View Virtual Desktop Infrastructures use case. This new paper provides prescriptive guidance for sizing and designing of all key requirements and components of Horizon View Virtual Desktop Infrastructures for VMware Virtual SAN. Some of the specifics items are listed below:

  • System Sizing and Desktop Classification
  • Host Sizing Considerations
  • Host CPU Sizing
  • Host Memory Sizing
  • CPU Sizing Assessment
  • Resource Overhead
  • Object calculations for Horizon View Desktops
  • Disk Group Sizing
  • Magnetic Disk Sizing
  • Flash Capacity Sizing

We highly recommend reviewing the white paper as inadequate sizing can a negative impact on the overall performance of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. The new design and sizing guide can be found and downloaded from the VMware Virtual SAN product page or directly from the link provided below:
