Benchmarks: Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Server Sizing and Scaling

VMware published a very interesting performance study on VMware Infrastructure 3 used as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI):

The actual number of desktops that a specific configuration of servers can support varies depending on such hardware characteristics as the processor type, the amount of memory installed, the storage configuration, the network configuration, the remote protocol used, and the demands of individual users (typing speed, applications used, frequency of access, and so forth). We ran experiments to study two such workloads with clients using the RDP protocol for remote display…
