Extensive VDI Anti Virtus report released by Project VRC
Today the VRC Team released a new report in a long list of reports regarding Desktop Virtualization. This report goes into detail about how Anti Virus solutions impact you performance for VDI environments. It does not only investigate the traditional methods of doing anti-virus, but also looks at the various offloading (via network and via vSphere vShield API) methods.
Interesting to see is that the vShield offloading method does improve well on Disk i/o, but CPU is not being reduced.
The most important thing is that the document does not just describe the perfomance result with the default behaviour of the most common anti virus solutions, but discusses what kind of optimisations can be made and what their impact are. So a very useful document for anyone running or building a VDI environment.
