The Architecture

What hardware, software and service do you need to set up a virtual desktop infrastructure?




Select your VMware View™ Server Platform

The VMware View™ and HP VDI are built on a unique architecture leveraging HP Converged Infrastructure with HP ProLiant Blade or Rack Servers accelerated to hyperspeed with with HP IO Accelerators from Fusion-io.

• These configurations are built on four identical servers for high availability
• The configurations scale out meaning you can start with four servers (or less) and add one server at a time as your environment grows. There is no limit to how much you can grow, just add more VDI servers and more shared storage

Select your VMware View™ VDI shared storage

The VMware View™ golden images sit on the HP IO Accelerator from Fusion-io. This provides up to 1000 IOP's per individual user delivering unheard of performance and completely eliminates the dreaded boot storm. Despite this, the architecture still requires reliable, highly available shared storage for user data and file shares. The great thing is that this investment can be leveraged across the rest of your VMware vSphere™ environment subject to correct sizing.

The storage options below can be used for any of the VDI server configurations above depending on your individual storage requirements.
