Save [VDI] Storage using VM Swap File Host Placement

When designing VDI solutions for VMware infrastructures, one of the many ways to reduce shared storage consumption is to allow the placement of VM Swap files (.vswp) on host local storage. The .vswp file is automatically created by ESX when the VM is Powered On, and automatically removed when the VM is Powered Off. (if …

PCoIP: Unleash the Throughput

PCoIP is a dynamic protocol and contains some very advanced mathematical algorithms to detect the ideal bandwidth, throughput, image quality and codecs to be utilised to stream contents to endpoints. These algorithms utilise arguments such as latency and variance to create what is called ‘rto’ metric. The higher the ‘rto’ the worse is the user …

Get hold of VDI IOPs, Read/Write Ratios and Storage Tiering

Getting the right storage requirements for VDI can be tricky in most situations. The reason for that is the lack of information about the workload that will be running in each one of the virtual desktops. It is possible to use some pre-trended numbers as baseline, however despite this would be an indication of what …
