Are High-Density Servers Fit to Support VDI Deployments?
High-density hardware might seem like a no brainer for your VDI deployment, but the servers you use to host virtual desktops aren't everything. You'll still need to consider storage, offload cards and more.
The answer to whether VDI deployments can benefit from high-density hardware is a not-so-simple "sometimes;" it all depends on the problem you need to solve.
High-density servers are likely to increase your cost per desktop, they don't support more advanced multimedia needs yet, and they require you to rethink your storage strategy. But if you have to support a large population of virtual desktop users and your data center floor space is limited, then the premium that comes with high-density hardware could easily be worth it.
