VDI In a BOX - Outlook 2013 Questions

Dear Experts,

We are thinking of deploying a VDI In A Box solution. I have some questions.

When the Client logs off and the VM is "destroyed" the next time the user logs in its a brand new session. I have read that the solution with Outlook 2013 is some GPO settings with Outlook in Online mode but the performance isn't good enough, it needs to be cached mode.

Is this possible with VDI?
Possibly with folder redirection?

Thanks in advance

Also VDI-In-A-Box has a Personal option so you can make the machine personal for that one user. If he logs in he will always get the same machine. A VDI can also have a roaming profile, no problem there but i would never ever suggest cache mode Exchange if you are using pooled desktops (destroyed after logoff). Problem with this is that, when logging in and configuring Oultook, you will get a major amount of IOPS on your VDI environment and you cannot handle this without SSD disks (which in turns are way to expensive).
