View Brainstorm – Looking for Current VMware View Customer’s , first eighteen questions

Earlier I had posted about view 4.5 design considerations, I had a couple of replies, so I thought I would widen the quarry.

I want to hear from people running VMware View. I have a ton of questions, but here is the first eighteen I could think of.

Below is my brainstorm off the top.

  1. How did you meet your I/O requirements on the storage side?
  2. Are you using a Cache card on your storage?
  3. Did you go 10GB at the same time?
  4. What did you use to get a View I/O estimate?
  5. How did you build / Configure your cluster? IE, scale up or out?
  6. Did you use blade vs Rack?
  7. What version of vSphere are you on?
  8. What build of vSphere are you on?
  9. What type of consolidation ratio do you have?
  10. How could you improve that?
  11. What challenges did you face on the AV side?
  12. What broker as you using, and why?
  13. What desktop / terminal configuration are you using?
  14. Anyone using Multi Monitor?
  15. Are you using single sign-on?
  16. Anyone using view in healthcare?
  17. Anyone using IPad’s?
  18. If so, what challenges are you, did you face?

I am looking for a lot of input, so please reply!

Also, if I am missing questions, please let me know!
