The recommended user densities in the following table were achieved during performance testing on VxRail appliances. We followed the VMware best practice of FTT = 1 and configured a reserved slack space of 30 percent. All configurations were tested with Microsoft Windows 10, 64-bit, version 1909, and Microsoft Office 2019. We implemented all mitigations to patch the Spectre, Meltdown, and L1TF vulnerabilities at the hardware, firmware, and software levels to ensure an improved performance impact, which is reflected in the user densities that we achieved.
