A desktop pool must not extend beyond the boundary of a vSphere cluster. • Local mode pool – Local Mode desktops can be checked out to run locally on a supported user access device such as a laptop. • vSphere clusters – vSphere clusters that contain the ESXi hosts. The View Transfer Server handles all communication with a checked out Local Mode desktop.There is always one vCenter Server per View block. 8 . • View Transfer Server – At least one Transfer Server is required in a View block that contains a Local Mode pool. • ESXi hosts – A View block always has one to eight ESXi host to upon which to run the View desktops. • Shared storage – A VMFS or NFS datastore that is accessible to all ESXi hosts in a View block. • Local storage – Local hard drives or SSD drives physically installed in the ESXi server are a valid datastore for View desktop pools. Datastores can be shared across View blocks.VMware View Building Block • vCenter Server . • View desktop pool – Every View block has at least one View desktop pool.
