This document, intended for IT architects deploying virtual desktops, explains how you can use products from VMware, Cisco, and EMC to create an end-to-end solution for VMware View 3.0. Planned correctly, the complete virtual desktop Infrastructure (VDI) provides a PC-like experience, even in bandwidth-constrained environments.
This document discusses central principles of design and architecture, including:
- Network resilience and WAN optimization
- Storage performance and sizing considerations
- Recommended deployment options for VMware View
- Interaction and dependencies between VMware View and both the storage and network infrastructure
