Hello, We are looking at possibly using VCL for our implementation of an Academic Computing Environment. I've read up on the needs and viewed some of the demos provided on the list, very helpful. I wanted to get a sense of the TCO that NCState or other Universities are taking onboard with the kind of usage capacity that it provides (with virtualization). We are initially not wanting to concern ourselves with owning the hardware piece of this and looking to host that either with a provider (providing the actual hardware/blades) or preferably using a Cloud vendor such as Amazon or NetApp using Citrix or NetApp. What I'm looking to get a sense of is the throughput you are currently enjoying for the hardware used to provide that throughput (using HyperV), say for example you are using 100 blades using virtualization can getting a throughput of 1,000 concurrent connections, or whatever the numbers are.
Thank you for your time Jason Rowley Walden University
