This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series Virtual Desktops on PCI-E SSD

Currently our VDI setup is only used in the Library and so we very rarely max out the usage on our server, however ealier today I spotted that we had 19 of our 20 VDI clients in use, by in use thats students logged in actively engaging with their computers.

I couldn’t resist checking up on the performance stats and shall we say………WOW……….less than 0.4 on the disk que length at all times and the response time never went above 2ms during average use (about 12-36MB/s) and only hit 9ms when the IO bursted to 84MB/s!

Screen shots can be seen below-

    Hi James,

    Are you still using VDI in a box and the PCI SSD setup? How is it holding up after 6 months?

      Hi Ryan,

      We sure are with no issues to report – ticking over quite nicely with the same number of VMs.
