Single office design 1 (Conceptual)

A new design startup wants to get a basic infrastructure running. They are expecting to grow over the next 5 years and want to have space to expand 20% year over year. Since they are a design firm they will be using a lot of storage, we will plan for 1TB of raw data a year. The new office only has room for 1 rack in the IDF and the company wants to cut down on power consumption and equipment costs. Backup is important and the client would like to utilize a service that they can recover their VM’s from the cloud.

Business requirements are simple but important

  1. Must fit in a single rack
  2. Must have cloud backup and recovery method.
  3. Can fit 20 VM’s and have growth for 20% year over year
  4. Use as little equipment as possible.
  5. 1TB of raw data for the first year

 

VDI Multiple locations (Conceptual)

I started making random design’s for different use cases. Pretty much whatever I though about in my own head. That being said this is my first design.

A pretty basic conceptual VDI design that features two office locations (one remote and one main site) with a primary and secondary datacenter ( in a active passive setup)

In the future I will be building off of these designs to get through the physical design process .I am doing this for learning purposes so any advice please let me know!
