<ul><li><p>Proven Solution Guide </p><p>EMC GLOBAL SOLUTIONS </p><p>Abstract </p><p>This Proven Solution Guide provides a detailed summary of the tests performed to validate an EMC infrastructure for virtual desktops enabled by VMware View 4.5, with an EMC VNX5700 unified storage platform. This paper focuses on sizing and scalability, and highlights new features introduced in EMC VNX, VMware vSphere, and VMware View. EMC unified storage uses advanced technologies like EMC FAST VP and EMC FAST Cache to optimize performance of the virtual desktop environment, helping to support service-level agreements. </p><p>May 2011 </p><p>EMC INFRASTRUCTURE FOR VIRTUAL DESKTOPS ENABLED BY EMC VNX, VMWARE vSPHERE 4.1, VMWARE VIEW 4.5, VMWARE VIEW COMPOSER 2.5, AND CISCO UNIFIED COMPUTING SYSTEMS Proven Solution Guide </p></li><li><p>EMC Infrastructure for Virtual Desktops enabled by EMC VNX, VMware vSphere 4.1, VMware View 4.5, VMware View Composer 2.5, and </p><p>Cisco Unified Computing SystemsProven Solution Guide </p><p>2 </p><p>Copyright 2011 EMC Corporation.
