The following figure depicts the architecture of the validated solution, including the network, compute and graphics, management, and storage layers. This architecture aligns with the VMware Horizon pod and block design. A pod is divided into multiple blocks. Each block is made up of one or more vSphere clusters, a vCenter Server, and, for linked clones, a composer server.
This Dell EMC Ready Solution for VDI supports all cloning techniques available from VMware: full, linked, and instant.
A vSphere cluster can have a maximum of 64 nodes and 6,400 VMs per vSAN cluster. To expand this limit, you can add clusters and balance the VMs and nodes across the new clusters.
The VMware Workspace ONE and VMware Horizon Reference Architecture provides more information about Horizon pods and blocks, as well as additional guidance about multisite configurations.
