VDI Tips and Tricks for Desktop Professionals #1: Resource Provisioning

March 17, 2020


This is the first in the series of tips and tricks on Virtual Desktop Infrastructure for Desktop Professionals. This series is not meant to be a long blog, but instead focus on the challenges and solutions for topics that desktop professionals face on a daily basis.

Resource Provisioning is an important aspect for optimizing your VDI performance. It is important to make sure that the critical VDI Infrastructure resources are not underprovisioned which impacts the performance, but equally important is making sure that you just don't throw money at every problem.

CPU Resources have a direct impact on the number of desktops and latency an organization needs to support their business critical applications running over VDI. Memory resources provides the performance boost needed to support many of those applications. Knowing which VDI user uses simple applications vs intensive applications must be known so that you right size and assign the memory resources to the VMs accordingly.

Blindly assigning more CPU or memory resources than what is really needed leads to wasted hardware resources, lower virtual desktop density and higher costs per virtual desktop. Every VDI administrator must be able to identify those provisioning scenarios and right size their VDI deployment.

Here is an example of a report generated by Uila that shows how you can rightsize your Compute resources in your environment to find the right balance between performance and your VDI infrastructure investment.
