VMware Virtual SAN – from Business Critical Applications to VDI Power Users


In my last guest blog on VMware’s Virtual Blocks, I shared an outstanding Virtual SAN solution that delivered 3 Million New Orders per Minute on a 4-Node All-Flash Virtual SAN cluster. Since then, the server partner solution is listed as a certified Virtual SAN Ready Node in two capacities for running business critical applications.

Now, we are thrilled to complete another All-Flash Virtual SAN solution with Supermicro!

Slick Power and Simplicity

What’s most exciting about this latest solution is its slick power and simplicity. This 2U, 4-node Virtual SAN solution is built using a flash trio that employs a single caching SSD and two (2) high capacity 4TB SSD capacity drives for each node. This architecture was tested to support 730 VDI desktops using linked clones for knowledge users and 230 full clones using a power user profile.

The results using VMware’s recommended View Planner VDI test setup and the cluster configuration are summarized as follows
