Principled Technologies tested to VDI solutions to find the number of virtual sessions each solution could support: (1) a Dell PowerEdge FX2 with Dell PowerEdge FC430 server sleds and FD332 storage using VMware Virtual SAN and (2) a fiver year old legacy Cisco UCS B200 M2 blade solution using a traditions SAN.
Hands-on testing at Principled Technologies compared the performance of an HP ProLiant DL380 G7 and the Intel-powered Dell PowerEdge R730 in multiple configurations. Find out: how each performed in multiple configurations to show how resource upgrades can improve performance, how upgrading individual system components effected the overall server output, and which components businesses should focus attention on to scale up and meet application demands.
The results of this testing are significant for a number of reasons. Together, VMware and Tintri were able to define a compact and easy-to-deploy VDI infrastructure pod that goes beyond the conventional thinking for throughput, client support, performance and cost per desktop. Beyond that, through Tintri's unique VM-aware architecture and per-VM QoS, workloads that would otherwise be incompatible with one another, were proven to coexist successfully in the same datastore thereby further driving down the cost of the infrastructure. And finally, because of Tintri's ease of setup and administration, new benchmarks for initial deployment and desktop provisioning were established that were previously unseen in the VMware labs.
