1. I looking for a VDI sizer in order to find which FAS could be suitable for a VDI configuration. I read on this community that it exists, but where to download it ?
I know the disk size and the number of IO/s is a key entry.
I'm looking for a tool to evaluate the needs for an office automation usage.
Reading the netapp WP tr-3724, it's seems that for 1000 users, one need of a 3170.
But I read there that a FAS 2050 could be enough
2. Gold images :
Are they reliable if each user have his own personnalized VM ?
I don't like the gold image idea. For me, it's good for a lab, for limited time VMs. But for production, with time, VMs will diverge from the gold image more and more.
Is it possible to update the gold image ? So apply a Service Pack one time for 10 000 desktop VM ? Or do I need to apply the SP to all VMs ?
