Thanks for an answare.
Welcome to the Communities
You will need a hardware platform to host ESXi. You will need to decide on some level of VMware software to manage the the virtual machines. I would suggest that you find a local hardware vendor with VMware experience to help you make the assessment. HP Dell, IBM, etc also sell VMware software so you can start there to see what is available although sizing and selecting appropriate server hardware and storage will require some understanding of your individual needs.
You can consult the VMware hardware compatibilyt list http://vmware.com/go/hcl
I would strongly suggest that you have a look at VMware View. http://vmware.com/go/view
according the the website you linked, yes.
Fujitsu Zero Client DZ22-2
Maximum savings, Maximum flexibility
The Zero Client DZ22-2 is a revolutionary new way of supplying IT to your office. Fujitsu´s Zero Client DZ22-2 supports all three leading hypervisors, including VMware® ESX(i)
There are starter packages that include all the items required including the management tools. You would need to add addtional desktop licenses.
thanks a lot for the answers, i think i can explain the problem we have a little bit better now...
In the VMware View 4.5 Pricing, Packaging & Licensing document we read this:
"For mixed Server & Desktop, must buy a la card"
here we are thats our problem...
i think and hope that is right, we need:
VMware View Premier-Add-On's
best regards and thanks a lot again,
In most cases it makes the most sense to get View Premier. You can buy licenses in packs of 10. You buy a starter pack first, and then add 10 packs (or 100 packs) as needed. Also when you buy the starter pack you get a license for "as much vSphere as it takes to run your desktop environment" which includes ESX, and vCenter licenses.
You do not need to buy vSphere Essentials if you are only going to be running View on that server(s). This includes anything that is needed to support those virtual desktops including domain controllers, SQL Servers, PCoIP Security Gatways, etc. This does not include services however, like Exchange or Sharepoint for example. If you were going to run Exchange you would have to buy a seperate vSphere license for those servers, in which case it might be more beneficial to get the View Premier add-on.
I would check with your local VMware sales rep for the current interpretation of where Windows 2008 SBS would fall since technically it is multiple services bundled into one server that is being used to support those Virtual Desktops.
