This white paper evaluates the performance of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) applications with vSAN 6.2.
vSAN is a distributed layer of software that runs natively as part of the VMware vSphere® hypervisor.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Workload
View Planner 3.5 is used with VMware View 6.2
vSAN Cluster Setup
The performance of the 4 -node desktop vSAN cluster
Performance of Hybrid vSAN Cluster
The first experiment is on the 4-node hybrid vSAN cluster where the desktop pool size in the cluster is varied.
Performance of All-Flash vSAN Cluster
In this experiment, the VDI workload is exercised on the 4 node all-flash cluster.
This paper shows the performance results for running a VDI workload on vSAN 6.2.
