VMware VDI solution for vCloud director(VDC)

Hi Team,

We like to setup VDI solution in our infrastructure with VDC(VCD).

We have an existing vcloud director setup which is backed up by vSphere(vCenter server,ESXi and VSAN data store)

As a service provider,we like to setup vSphere VDI solution along with existing vCloud director.This is not a dedicated VDI solution for one client and the proposed VDI solution(whatever we are going to opt)is for multi tenants(under VCD).

In simple,We like to provide VDI solution for muliple clients(multi tenant).Each customer will have one VDC and like to integrate the VMware VDI solution within their VDC.

At the backend,we will have only one vCenter,shared ESXi hosts,VSAN data store,AD server among all the customers.

Could you please advise Which VDI solution will be best option to get integrated with VDC ?

Thanks,

Manivel RR

It would nice to receive answer to this non-answered question.

From my current research's seams Horizon doesn't have any integration with Cloud Director. 

Also, it seams advised to deploy dedicated vCenter, ESXi  just for Horizon Services. This is obviously huge waste of resources for current Cloud Providers based on VMware.

There is also an old blog post from 2013. about this https://myvirtualcloud.net/how-to-horizon-view-and-vcloud-director-multi-tenant-daas/ but since this is from ten years ago stating there is no integration between Cloud Director and Horizon.

However, VMware might did some progress in this matter in last 10 years.

Let's hope that someone can shed more light on this matter.

There is no native VDI integration in VCD. In theory, you could still onboard any VDI management solutions in VDC design as per the requirement, and do the integration.
