Anyone know a good ratio of users to View Connection Servers?

I've seen in the docs that you need 1 Connection Server per 50 users? Is this a real number? seems very low. One would need many, many connection servers for a large installation.

Thanks in Advance

Jeff

The older VDM version was tested with over a 1000 users so 50 does seem a bit low to me. I would imagine that it would scale much higher than that but as far a recommended number from VMware I have not seen one.

We have a productive environment where 2 brokers (behind a load blancer) manage the connect to 1400 individual virtual vistas. We use the broker just for the connection and do not tunnel any session through the Server. It is running quit fine.

I use about 800 to 1000 seats per Connection broker as my design standard.
