Posted on Wednesday, January 21, 2009 | No Comments

New document added to the "VMware Technical Resource documents listing" on VMTN. Remember this document lists all technical resource documents with their abstracts, a great way to search them all via a simple Ctrl-F.

At version 18 there are now 199 documents listed with abstracts for searching. This is the first new document this year, released today. Come on VMware, just one more and we hit 200!

Performance of Virtual Desktops in a VMware Infrastructure 3 Environment 
by VMware on 01/20/2009 @ http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/vdesk_scaling.pdf

This paper examines the performance of virtual desktops running a typical mix of interactive applications on VMware ESX 3.5 Update 2. These include office application tasks such as editing documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, as well as browsing the Internet and reading documents. Results show the effect on performance as workload is scaled up from 16 to 160 virtual machines.
I took a quick squiz at the document, VDI is a pet topic. It shows CPU resource consumption but it would be very helpful to see RAM and disk IO/Mb per second loads too.
