This document records real-world workload performance data for a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) storage solution based on the Dell EMC SC9000 array. The test environment simulates a mid- to large-sized company with 5,000 end-user VMs running Microsoft Windows 7 and a workload typical of knowledge workers. The target IOPS load was 40 IOPS per virtual machine, for a total requirement of 200,000 IOPS.
