    Recommendations for VDI

    jansmil

      Hi,

       

      We searched about this in MOVE deployment documentation, but could not find some important information.

      What  is recommended number of offload scan servers in case of 100, 1000, 5000  desktops.  How much memory and vCPU should be allocated per one offload scan server.  Also, does offload scan server must be on the same Xenserver hosts as  the desktops. Are there any advantages of using Microsoft NLB, rather than NetScaler? How much network bandwidth will MOVE and Mcafee agent use per one desktop?

      And just to be clear, we have to purchase MOVE licenses per desktops, or are there also licenses for offload scan server?

       

      Thanks

          4 CPU + 4 GB memory

           

          does offload scan server must be on the same Xenserver

           

          No. You don't want them seperated by large distances but they can be on different servers

          You are fully licensed for the scan servers now. No matter how many you use.

          You will have to test how many works best for you and what scheme you use to load balance. Start with a pair of scanner per 250 VDI as a baseline.
