VDI Design Guide (EUC Design Series)

Is this finally the year of the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)? There doesn’t seem to be a straight answer to that question. A VDI can be designed to work perfectly in your environment, but could also be a big pain in the butt. This guide will help you design a VMware Horizon VDI, based on the VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX) methodology. It will help you understand what steps need to be taken to bring a project to a successful result. It contains examples of real-world design projects, requirements & constraints which will help you make the right decision in a great variety of scenarios. As sizing does matter, you will also be guided through the complete sizing process. Other topics that will be covered: Windows 10, multi-site architectures, NSX, vSAN, profile strategies, application delivery strategies, assessments, monitoring, security, GPUs, and remote protocols.
