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. During the time we talked with NVIDIA we had a discussion about sizing our environments. A very interesting discussion enrolled where we all agreed that sizing is more than just reading white papers and taking those numbers for the truth for any environment. A couple of weeks later we have some issues at customers with GPU enabled VDI environments where the desktops lose their GPU all of a sudden. 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.

Sizing for the numbers – real life example

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.
