Friday Tips #31

Happy Friday, everyone!

Our tip this week answers a question that comes up often.

Question:

When deploying Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, how many users can a single server support?

Answer from information in the Oracle's Single Server Solution for VDI white paper:
As part of a single server solution (meaning, the hypervisor, storage, and management pieces are all on one machine and no other systems are necessary), Oracle tested two different configurations and came up with a guideline for how many users these systems can support. Please remember, this is just a guideline and not a guarantee or assurance of performance.

Configuration #1 (this is called the "base configuration" in the paper):

  • Sun Server X3-2L based on Intel Xeon E5 2660 processors
  • 128 GB 1600 MHz RAM (expandable to 512 GB)
  • 16 x 600G SAS-2 10K RPM disks 
  • Based on a customized “Large” configuration on the Oracle store 
  • Targeted at 90-95 users per system

Configuration #2 (this is called the "performance configuration" in the paper):

  • Sun Server X3-2L based on Intel Xeon E5 2690 processors 
  • 256 GB 1600 MHz RAM (expandable to 512 GB) 
  • 26 x 600G SAS-2 10K RPM disks 
  • Offered as “Large” configuration on the Oracle store 
  • Targeted at 180-190 users per system

If you'd like to get some more detail on this, head on over to the Oracle's Single Server Solution for VDI white paper for a lot more info.

We'll see you next week!
