It is to supply ALL server components, resiliency components and licensing components of a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. • The VDI infrastructure has to initially support 250 concurrent users and be scalable (at no additional cost other than licensing) to 500 concurrent users. • The VDI infrastructure will need to support a geographical split of units. Currently 290 based at Grimsby campus and 60 based at Scarborough campus. The link to the Scarborough campus is a 100mb leased line, but suffers from high latency. • The VDI infrastructure will need to support, at the desktop level, USB drive access, streaming of YouTube / flash / Silverlight content. Along with all standard desktop expectations. • Virtual Desktops will need a minimum of 2gb of RAM and 2 virtual CPUs per user. • The VDI infrastructure will need to be resilient. At the very least if one component fails then users will be able to reconnect to other resources to continue work. Ideally users will not notice any failure of component. • The current thin client model in use in the Group is HP T510 • The detailed requirements are set out in the table in the tender document.
