From time to time I’m asked to do quick/dirty IO sizing for customers looking to do View Virtual Desktops.  Normally it’s a request by the EMC Technical Consultant to help size the array.  Now, I usually throw a bunch of caveats into the mix like “they really should be working with either EMC Consulting Services […]

  As I’ve mentioned in the past I’ve been working with a good friend of mine to help him get his home lab up and running.  In the last blog post I talked about the importance of a solid Windows 2008 Template and the process in vSphere 5 on how to create a template.  As […]
