comment Finding correct IOPS to set limit with ESXi 5.5u2 and vSphere
Funny, I used to go with 180 for years too but these newer disks really do push it up a tiny bit - but you're right about the controller quality - especially with SSDs, so many of them get bogged down with crappy ones.

comment Hypothetically how many SSDs are needed to assure redundancy?
@FranciscoMariaCalisto To add weight to EEAA's comment, you need someone to help you who knows that R3 hasn't been used since the early '90's and R5 hasn't been recommended this decade. This is either homework, which isn't allowed on this site, or you're out of your depth and need help. Sorry if you feel we're being harsh but as we make clear when you sign up this site is for professional sysadmin, not learners, not home users, not tinkerers.

@FranciscoMariaCalisto - no problem, it's a badly worded and researched question, I've answered you but it's more than you deserve - please don't post again until you can meet the requirements laid out very clearly in the help pages we ask new users to read before posting.

Nope, you've chosen to run your server WAAAY outside of the expected configuration, you have to deal with the consequences.

comment Do we need vCenter for only one vSphere and Horizon View?
Yeah, it very specifically states in the Horizon 6 documentation (it's not hard to find, shame you didn't bother looking yourself) 'If you are using vSphere, you must use a supported version of vSphere ESX/ESXi hosts and vCenter Server' as Ben has already said - I don't see what's complex about that?
