Sessions offer the following advantages over
VDI:
• Higher scale - more sessions per server than
VMs
• Lower cost - Session virtualization technology
is cheaper to acquire and operate than VMs
• Easier management –mature technology with
familiar management tools
Microsoft + Citrix = Choice
• Deploy Session based or VM based desktops
using the same technology
• Manage sessions and VM delivery from the
same console
• Deliver an excellent remote desktop
experience for both Sessions and VDI.
12
Benefits beyond Session Virtualization:
• User admin rights
• Greater application compatibility
But at additional cost:
• Compared to session virtualization, needs
more storage and servers for the same
number of users.
• Management of client OS for each user
Microsoft + Citrix offers you a choice:
• Deploy Sessions or VMs using the same
technology
• Manage sessions and VM delivery from the
same console
• Deliver an excellent remote desktop
experience for both Sessions and VDI.

In order to provide an experience similar to physical
desktops, the datacenter may require significant
upgrades. Servers and storage will be needed, and
possibly power and cooling.
Protocols need to be
designed with WANs
in mind

Network
Network may need to be
updated to handle display
remoting and peripherals.
Your VDI technology should provide best in
class server density, VM management and
network optimization

Session Virtualization scales more users per server than VDI

I do think that, looking at memory management from a VDI perspective, Hyper-V fits
the bill just as well as ESX does, if not better.
Is Hyper-V Dynamic Memory any good for VDI? Definitely! I love it.
Making the most of Dynamic Memory can really be worth your while. In fact Microsoft has
seen improvements of up to 40% (!) in density for VDI workloads.
With VMware it's also easier to oversubscribe the physical memory of the host (note how I didn't use the
word overcommit!) and I think that's a risk in most current VDI deployments. No matter how you slice
it or dice it, when RAM is oversubscribed it introduces a higher probability of paging. This in return
means a huge increase in IOPS. I guess it should go without saying that this is something you
should avoid at all costs in VDI environments.
Application Virtualization in VDI
Benefits:
• Lowers OS management costs
• The OS becomes thinner and
easier to deploy
• Fewer images to maintain in the
datacenter
• Reduce SAN storage costs

Hyper-V:
REDUCES INFRASTRUCTURE COSTS
• Reduce memory requirements across
VDI desktops by 40% with dynamic
memory capability of Hyper-V
• Reduce desktop image size using App-V
to stream apps to the OS image
• App-V shared cache allows VDI
desktops to share storage across VMs
XenDesktop:
REDUCES SAN STORAGE COSTS
• Citrix XenDesktop can create
dynamically provision user desktops
from a single golden image
• Fewer desktop images need to be
stored
