EMC Infrastructure for VMware View 5.1:  VNX (NFS) vSphere 5.0, View Storage Accelerator, Persona Managment, and Composer

< Back to the list of EMC Reference Architectures


Reference Architecture:

This document describes the reference architecture of the EMC infrastructure for VMware® View™ 5.1, EMC® VNX™ Series (NFS), VMware vSphere® 5.0, VMware® View™ Persona Management, VMware® View™ Storage Accelerator, and VMware® View™ Composer 3.0 solution, which was tested and validated by the EMC Solutions group.



The features of the VNX operating environment enable EMC VNX series arrays to drive higher storage consolidation ratios at a lower cost than was previously possible. This reduces the capital expenditure on equipment and lowers the operational costs required to support the placement, power, and cooling of the storage arrays.


This reference architecture provides a blueprint for a validated VMware View 5.1 virtualization solution enabled by EMC VNX storage and the VMware vSphere 5.0 virtualization platform. The solution is able to support and scale to thousands of virtual desktops.
