This reference architecture provides guidance for implementing a VMware Horizon 6 deployment that supports 2,000“10,000 users with an existing server and storage infrastructure. Although hardware is specified for 2,000 users, you can scale the deployment up to 10,000 users using the pod and block architecture approach. The Horizon 6 reference architecture combines the technologies of standard rack-mount server hardware running on EMC VNX storage, View Storage Accelerator (to accelerate existing SAN), VMware ESXi 5.5, and Horizon 6 to produce a highly efficient, robust, and scalable next-generation virtual workspace deployment. This document includes information on Horizon 6 with View, VMware Mirage 5.0, and VMware Workspace Portal 2.1 running on top of VMware vSphere 5.5. As part of the architecture validation, VMware performed functional tests to highlight how the entire software stack integrates to provide a complete virtual workspace solution.
