The EMC Software Solutions Engineering team, along with our counterparts at VMware, Cisco, and Citrix are constantly working to validate our solutions and document these tests to provide our customers with high-level guidance and confidence that the VDI solutions we talk about with our customers actually work…and here’s the proof.  Reference architectures aren’t implementation guides.  Every customer environment is unique, and the RA’s and Solution Guides published here shouldn’t be blindly applied; but they are a great place to start.
