This guide outlines the critical infrastructure design elements that will help ensure a successful implementation of Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V). This guide walks you through the four-step process of designing components, layout, and connectivity in a logical, sequential order. Identification of the MED-V server instances needed is presented in simple, easy-to-follow steps, with the result being the delivery of managed virtual machines to end users. This guide will help you create a design that is sized, configured, and appropriately placed, while also considering the performance, capacity, and fault tolerance of the system.

Infrastructure Planning and Design specifically helps you by:
  • Enabling you to quickly select the end users, locations, and virtual machines (VMs) that will be included in the project scope.
  • Assisting you in determining how many MED-V server instances will be required in order to deliver managed virtual machines to end users.
  • Defining the technical decision flow through the planning process.
  • Listing the decisions to be made and the commonly available options and considerations.
  • Relating the decisions and options to the business in terms of cost, complexity, and other characteristics.
  • Stepping you through MED-V infrastructure design in a logical, sequential order.

  • Isn't what MED-V achieves possible without a client-server model? Sun's VirtualBox already has this feature called "Seamless mode" where virtualized apps run like native ones but with the virtualized OS's theme/skin, without 2 desktops. Why doesn't Microsoft add this feature to Virtual PC vNext instead of a complex client-server solution. Small businesses and end users can also benefits from this client-side only addition. In fact, I'd like to know if VPC 2007 is the last version and why Microsoft's desktop virtualization product lacks so many features compared to competiton on the market today?
