starting a VDI (vmware view) project. need some advice regarding hardware
Posted on 2009-04-21
our company is considering to go full out VDI for all our clients, we allready use vmware for all our servers, and i hope our current hardware (with ram and storrage upgrade) can handle the clients.
here are our specs.
1x HP Blade C3000 with 3xBL460C G1
every BL460C G1 have 2x gigabit lan ports, 2x intel quad 2,33 ghz, (only) 4 giga ram.
the Blade is connected to a
1x HP AIO600 with 1,2 TB harddisk space, this AIO is our primary (and only) storrage, it is using ISCSI.
all this is connected with a single HP procurve 2810-24G (J9021A) (gigabit)
we have a basic vmware enterprice licence ( it was a bundle together with the blade)
i use, Vmotion, HA, virtualcenter, update manager, without problems and all is working.
we are planning to run about 90 winXP VDI on this system, i know we need more ram and more storrage space.
all clients should be able to run MSOffice(any version), surf the internet, and run a very small homemade journal system.
can this even be done, ?? and what do i need to make this work.
any pointers for software, and hardware problems i will encounter would be greatly apriciated.
thanks for your time.
