Sizing matters, let’s talk size for a moment

At VMworld in Las Vegas we had a meeting on Wednesday afternoon with all of the VMware EUC Champions and product manager, vendors and so on.

The discussion went on internally and on twitter about sizing NVIDIA cards. This blog is not about NVIDIA I wrote another blog about our issue at that customer – link -, this blog is about sizing in general. Sizing matters and we have to understand that.

That was seen from a density perspective and not from a user experience perspective. The idea behind those papers was to show how many ideally would fit. To get to this number use cases were designed and users-load was fired on the machine through some “random” pattern. The numbers we saw there were amazing, 120, 150 or even 200 user/desktops per host.
