The Dell EqualLogic hybrid arrays – EqualLogic PS6100XS and PS6110XS – are well suited for supporting VDI deployments because they are specifically designed for VDI type workloads where a relatively small portion of the storage system can become very hot (very high read I/O rates). This paper demonstrates how an 830 task worker virtual desktop environment can be deployed in the chosen VDI infrastructure leveraging a single PS6100XS array. Details are provided for the storage I/O characteristics under various VDI workload scenarios like boot and login storms along with performance characteristics throughout the VDI stack.
