Cisco Publishes Industry’s First and Best VMware View Planner Benchmark Result

Today’s user workloads are becoming ever more intense: they include a wider range of demanding applications, all with users expecting quick response times. They perform operations such as document preparation, spreadsheet manipulation, web browsing, presentation preparation, and video streaming. The VMware View Planner benchmark helps organizations through their virtual desktop planning processes by precisely measuring the responsiveness of simulated user operations on the standardized VMware VDImark desktop workload. The benchmark then incorporates that responsiveness into a VDImark score. This metric helps organizations evaluate the performance impact of new server, storage and virtualization technologies as new features and innovations are introduced.
