VMware released a new Technical Whitepaper on April 10.
In VMware Horizon 6 Storage Considerations, Kris Boyd takes a close look at the most important questions and challenges that face anyone tasked with designing a new Horizon 6 deployment. In addition to Horizon 6 updates, Kris describes relevant considerations for App Volumes,Mirage, Workspace Portal, and Virtual SAN. He also offers valuable practical advice about storage, based on many years in the field.
This 34 pages PDF document addresses the challenges associated with end-user computing workloads in a virtualized environment and suggests design considerations for managing them. It focuses on performance, capacity, and operational considerations of the storage subsystem because storage is the foundation of any virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) implementation. Where possible, it offers multiple solutions to common design choices faced by IT architects tasked with designing and implementing a VMware Horizon storage strategy.
