VMworld: VMware View Performance & Best Practices (EUC3163)

PCoIP server offload card for improved graphical performance & consolidation

View 5
– WAN bandwidth optimizations: ~75% reduction
– CPU optimizations: idle VMs, algorithms, libraries
– Better session resilience: session recovery during loss of network of up to 30 seconds
– PCoIP performance counters
– Provisioning: faster and more parallelism

VMware View Planner
– generates a typical office user workload
– workload generator and sizing tool
– – capacity planning
– – evaluate user experience
– – – QoS methodology: group operations with similar characteristics
– – – 95th percentile passing requirement
– View 2.0 ships as a virtual appliance
– – custom app support
– – support for Office 2003/2007
– – automation works in vSphere 4+
– View 2.x coming soon

Storage tiering
– OS image (OS binary files)
– Persona disk (user data)
– Disposable disk (page file)

Tiering data distribution
– 90/10 IOPS distribution during boot storm & steady state
– – boot storm: 90% on OS disk
– – steady state: 90% on non-OS disk
– put the OS disk on SSD datastore
– put non-OS disks on non-SSD

Use SSD to store replicas
