  • 6 Storage Cost per Desktop Analysis #NetAppSynergy
  • Sizing Assumptions  Extrapolation based on NetApp performance testing for Citrix PVS & our VDI Sizing Tool – LoginVSI heavy workload (10 IOPS/desktop to storage; majority of read IOPS served by PVS read cache) – Apps latency within acceptable limits (VSIMax number below 1500)  All VMs boot within 10 minutes  Capacity: 6GB-17GB per user (use case dependent) – 35% dedupe savings for Citrix Personal vDisk and CIFS share  IO Acceleration: – Writes: NetApp IO coalescing – Read IOPS:  FlashCache for CIFS read traffic  Citrix PVS caches majority of VM reads  NetApp controller utilization <50% during steady state 7 #NetAppSynergy
