comment How many SSDs are needed to assure redundancy?
@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?

comment How to modify maximum RAM usage in vCenter 6.0
A) Yes, they want to move away from all Windows-based services, and before v7 too, already the Windows version of vC with the built-in-DB is already less capable that VCSA (though that might actually be NDA sorry, I work closely with them) and B) I have to admit I've never compared them - even during VCIX-exam-prep - that's how unlikely I am to deal with the Windows version :) Most people don't care because their hosts have easily enough memory to make any tiny variation insignificant - are you very memory constrained? if so that's not exactly best-practice.

comment How to modify maximum RAM usage in vCenter 6.0
The whole point of the VCSA is that you don't HAVE to do anything with the linux side of things, zero - it just works as an appliance! It really does make sense to drop the Windows version (and the .net client) as soon as possible as they're 'going away' soon enough.

comment Azure memory overhead
I don't mean this to sound horrid but I think you need to learn more about how hypervisors use memory as you seem to be overcomplicating matters - if you've bought say 1GB of memory then that's what the hypervisor gives your VM, it doesn't care about what's OS, what's app, what's data etc., it just gives you the memory - if MS aren't reserving all of that memory for you then that's their policy and a commercial decision, not a technical issue you can control directly.

comment Azure memory overhead
That could be due to serious over-consolidation on MS's part, we've no way of telling, they don't publish that kind of information. What I do know is that whatever you're doing, you're not directly in control of that kind of behaviour - though you could contact them and explain your observations, perhaps they could move your VM/s to a less constrained cluster - either way it'd not your behaviour that dictates this performance issue and nothing you can do would be predictable anyway - it's just how they're choosing to run their host estate.

comment Azure memory overhead
Why do you care? the overhead is host memory not guest memory - it's MS's 'cost' not yours

comment Providing shared file level storage from a SAN
No problem - glad you checked, the reason I asked is because HP/3Par have started offering some NAS services on their otherwise-block-only SAN arrays and thought it was worth looking at. Oh and W2012R2 does deduplication too if that's of interest.
