  • User Profile Disk maintains user

    personalization in pooled deployments.

    Fair Share dynamically distributes

    bandwidth, CPU, and disk use.

    Flexible storage options support direct-

    attached, network-attached, or storage area

    network (SAN) storage of virtual machines.

    Easy deployment automates deploying and

    configuring server roles.

    Unified administration uses a single,

    Maintain user

    personalization in pooled


    High availability for all roles

  • User Profile Disk

    Enable personalization on pooled virtual machines or sessions

    Store user data and settings on a separate virtual hard disk

    Simplify deployment of lower-cost VDIs (pooled virtual machines and sessions)

    VDI Session Host

  • Personalization with User Profile Disk

    User Profile Disk with pooled virtual machine collections

    User Profile Disk with remote desktop session host collections

    What should I deploy?

    User Profile Disk

    With every virtual machine pool and

    remote desktop session host collection

    User environment virtualization

    To apply roam settings across collections

    Folder Redirection

    To apply roaming user data across


    To centralize user data backup

    BenefitsAvailable with pooled virtual machine collections and remote desktop session host collections

    Stores all user settings and data

    Contains roaming user profile, Folder Redirection cache, and user environment virtualization

    Roams with user within collection

    Appears as a local disk and improves application compatibility

  • Fair Share

    Helps ensure high performance across user virtual machines and sessions

    Apply to both sessions and virtual machines

    Dynamically distributes resources (bandwidth, CPU, and I/O)


  • Multiple storage options

    Use direct-attached storage, network-attached storage, and clustered or SAN storage

    Leverage tiered storage to automatically optimize performance

    Reduce storage cost by leveraging disk deduplication

  • Storage optionsSample
