HP and Citrix VDI-in-a-Box: Part 1 – Reference Architecture Scaling


When coupled with HP ProLiant servers, Citrix VDI-in-a-Box creates a low-cost cookie-cutter approach for rapidly deploying VDI environments. Together, these products form a turnkey-like appliance that makes VDI deployment remarkably easy — the challenge is simply determining the number and type of HP ProLiant servers needed to match user capacity and workload requirements.

To take the guesswork out of capacity planning and sizing, I worked with HP’s Client Virtualization Architect, Kirk Manzer, to validate specific HP server and Citrix VDI-in-a-Box configurations. We wanted to come up with scalability guidelines to help customers predict capacity and identify how many users could be supported with acceptable response times under a defined workload. The white paper titled “HP Client Virtualization SMB Reference Architecture for Citrix VDI-in-a-Box” contains details about the testing and the data I collected.
