VMware Horizon View General Best Practices

 Horizon View Parameter  Recommended  Default  Description
View Storage Accelerator  Disable  Enabled This is disabled through the Connection Server.  Because Pure Arrays have lots of IOPS at very low latency, we don't need the extra layer of caching at the host.
Maximum Concurrent vCenter Operations  >=50  ~20 The default concurrent vCenter operations are defined in the View Connection server advanced vCenter settings.  The default values are quite conservative and can be increased to higher values to allow recompose and other operations to complete much more quickly.
Virtual Disk Format  SE Sparse   Space Efficient sparse virtual disks are recommended on Pure Storage due to the space efficiency and preventing vmdk bloat.
