How to Manage VDI Thin Provisioning Tradeoffs


Within our data center more times than not we are striving to accomplish two things simultaneously. On the one hand, we want to make sure the applications that are running in our data center are getting the resources that they need. On the other hand, we want to do so with the least amount of money possible. That is, make sure we get the most out of the infrastructure while at the same time assuring application performance. Really that is one of the huge benefits of virtualizing in the first place. With capabilities such as live migration of workloads and high availability, virtualization helped make sure that workloads got what they needed. As for efficiency, virtualization also helped in that regard with overcommit. More specifically thin provisioning—which I would like to talk about today and even more specifically about managing thin provisioning in say a virtual desktop environment.

With thin provisioning there is an inherent risk involved with overcommitting the amount of storage that is provisioned. However thin provisioning has its obvious advantages with improved storage density. Again, another tradeoff. Turbonomic is designed to control and manage those tradeoffs across your data center, including thin provisioning. What about in a virtual desktop environment? What is your Desired State to manage between that tradeoff?

What’s An Appropriate Amount of Thin Provisioning Risk for VDI?
