Large View Deployment with vCenter Operations Manager PlugIn

During EMC World 2012 the Hands-On Labs about 20,000 VMs were created and destroyed. Each Hands-On Lab is an individual vCloud VApp instantiated on-demand and it contains the essential VMs for the Hands-On Lab. Additionally, each Hands-On Lab has a Windows 7 VM with View Agent that is manually added to a VMware View deployment to allow desktop brokering and PCoIP access.

On top of that EMC used the new vCenter Operations Manager for VMware View to monitor the entire environment, including all in-guest PCoIP performance status. Whilst this may not be the largest VMware View deployment using vCenter Operations Manager, it is probably the most dynamic, – due to the Hands-On Lab lifecycle nature.

EMC vSpecialist Clint Kitson (@clintonskitson) sent me a video with vCenter Operations Manager for VMware View in action during EMC World. I  have shortened, made some edits and added a soundtrack. It’s pretty impressive.


I recommend watching this video in 720p HD and Large screen mode
