VMware VMworld 2021 once again will be an online event in October and is free to attend, with access using the General Pass, register at https://www.vmware.com/vmworld/en/index.html.
This yearly event is pinnacle to anyone wanting to understand the VMware portfolio and solutions offered. As my blog focuses on Anywhere Workspace / EUC, one session that stands out for me, which I strongly recommend, is the Create, Automate, and Optimize a Windows Image for Horizon, session ID EUS1549.
Image optimisation is one part of the VDI solution that usually gets missed, and typically is the root cause of most performance-related issues seen with Horizon deployments. Many organisations simply take their existing image(s), whether used in physical or virtual environments and use them to deploy their Horizon virtual desktops without giving much further thought to the optimisation of the image.
Not only using an existing image may cause issues, but with each release of Windows 10, various elements of the operating system change, which can also contribute to performance issues in VDI. This session will provide a low down on the need to optimise, and more importantly, how to optimise the correct way, providing you with the knowledge to ensure you start your VDI implementations the right way.
