Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Before knowing consistent and acceptable performance of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure / VDI, it is necessary to know, how u can use products from VMware, Cisco, and EMC to
create an end-to-end solution for VMware View. VMware View provides the best end user experience, and transforms IT by simplifying and automating desktop management. Unlike other desktop virtualization products, it is a tightly integrated end-to-end solution built on the industry leading virtualization platform, allowing powerful business continuity and disaster recovery features to their desktops and standardize on a common platform from the desktop through the datacenter to the cloud.
As u mentioned ur Q, performance for VDI environments, especially during peak load periods…., Reference Architecture Workload Code / RAWC is a simulation tool that provides a realistic and customizable application workload to simulate expected VDI utilization in a given server environment. Needless to say that, it generates the required random workload allowing to analyze CPU, Memory, and Disk utilization method, & of-course produce VDI sizing recommendations. It may also introduce random delay or pauses during peak load times.
When the Q arises for workload planning for VDI performance, consider various user types and display protocols as well as.

NOTES: It categorizes the workers into three main types: Task Workers, Knowledge Workers, and Power Users. <a href=”http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/VMware-WP-WorkloadConsiderations-WP-EN.pdf”>RAWC</a> workload runs on a Windows 7 or XP guest operating systems.

    "VMware View provides the best end user experience... Unlike other desktop virtualization products, it is a tightly integrated end-to-end solution built on the industry leading virtualization platform" This is clearly taken from Vmware View advertising. IMO, in this kind of (sponsored) questions, the question asker is not looking for advice nor for advertising. I would expect answers from people that have actually implemented VDI, who could share their experience or the techniques (or even products) they use to manage VDI performance.
