FlashStack Converged Infrastructure Solution Citrix XenDesktop 7.7

Pure Storage has introduced a converged infrastructure platform known as FlashStack that is built upon trusted hardware from Cisco and Pure Storage. FlashStack leverages Cisco’s extremely flexible and expandable Unified Computing System (UCS™) to provide the compute horsepower, Cisco Nexus Switches for networking and Pure Storage FlashArray//m Series as the storage foundation. 

This document describes a reference architecture for deploying a Citrix XenDesktop 7.7 VDI environment on a FlashStack Converged Infrastructure using VMware vSphere 6.0, Login VSI 4.1.4 (the industry standard load testing solution for virtual desktop environments), and Microsoft Windows Server 2012R2 and Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit) as the guest operating system. 

Pure Storage has validated the reference architecture within its lab – this document presents the hardware and software configuration, the test workload configuration, testing results and further offers implementation and sizing guidance for a mixed workload VDI population from hundreds to thousands of concurrent sessions
