The recommended user densities in the following table were achieved during the performance testing on VxRail appliances. We followed the VMware best practices of FTT = 1 and configured a reserved slack space of 30 percent. All configurations were tested with Microsoft Windows 10, 64-bit, 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 achieved user densities.
