How do I know what server I need for VDI-in-a-Box?


You’ve seen the demo and have downloaded the VDI-in-a-Box trial software. Your PC/VDI-in-a-Box side by side user tests are going great; the price is well within your budget; and you have seen it’s going to be a dream to support. So now you need to figure out what servers you need to use in production.

You have several server choices: Dell’s DVS Simplified 1010 VDI appliance (PowerEdge 710 with XenServer hypervisor and VDI-in-a-Box pre-installed), HP’s reference architecture (for their ProLiant DL380p Gen8), or you can size and select your own.

Citrix provides a Server Sizing Guide to help you figure out what components and performance your server(s) need for the amount of desktops you plan to deploy. The Guide covers the requirements for CPU, memory, number of disks and storage.
