Product Details

Dell Wyse Datacenter Reference Architecture for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, formerly XenDesktop scaling from 50 to 50K+ VDI users. Solution options encompass a combination of solution models including local disks, iSCSI or Fiber Channel based storage options.

The document addresses the architecture design, configuration and implementation considerations for the key components of the architecture required to deliver virtual desktops via Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 7.1 on Windows Server Hyper-V 2012 R2 or VMware vSphere 5.

Relative to delivering the virtual desktop environment, the objectives of this document are to:

  • Define the detailed technical design for the solution.
  • Define the hardware requirements to support the design.
  • Define the design constraints which are relevant to the design.
  • Define relevant risks, issues, assumptions and concessions - referencing existing ones where possible.
  • Provide a breakdown of the design into key elements such that the reader receives an incremental or modular explanation of the design.
  • Provide solution scaling and component selection guidance.
