This set of documents describes the high level steps required to design and deploy an EMC® VSPEX® End-User Computing Solution for up to 500 virtual desktops with VMware Horizon View and VMware vSphere enabled by EMC  VNXe3200® storage.

This Reference Architecture validates the performance of the solution and provides guidelines to build similar solutions. This document is not intended to be a comprehensive guide to every aspect of this solution.




Business applications are moving into a consolidated compute, network, and storage environment. This VSPEX End-User Computing solution with VMware reduces the complexity of configuring every component of a traditional deployment model. The solution reduces the complexity of integration management while maintaining application design and implementation options. The solution also provides unified administration, while enabling adequate control and monitoring of process separation.
