Recent blog post by Andre called How to buy the wrong hardware for VDI teaches you on a good example what went wrong in the process of architecting VDI solution. First Architect, then buy hardware. Not the other way around…
A quick quote from that article:
I asked myself what I would have chosen for this scenario. Assuming I am not allowed to change the specifications for the virtual desktops I would probably try to bump the CPU clock up to 3.0GHz when buying the servers to allow me to run more VMs per CPU core. With more VMs per CPU core I would be better utilizing the amount of CPU available, however I would still need 719GB RAM.
On the image below you can see the new option for 12, 16, 20 and 24 core microprocessors
