Can I run VDI with just a single server?
Answer by Chris Kawalek, Senior Principal Product Director, Oracle Desktop Virtualization Marketing:
Absolutely! Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure allows you to deploy on a single server for everything you need for a VDI deployment: brokering, running VMs, and storage. Properly outfitted, this single server should be able to support up to 180-190 users. You can read exactly how to do this, what kind of server it requires and more in this new white paper:
Another great thing about this solution is that it easily scales. If you add a second server, you can use its own internal storage for HA. And you can add external storage and more servers if you want to scale even higher. And at no point do you have to install a different product or do a massive reconfiguration to grow from a small pilot or departmental deployment to an enterprise one.
