Deploy VDI Pools Faster in Server 2012 R2


By default RDS Virtual Desktop deployments are set to create/update a single VM per Host at one time.

To optimise and improve deployment times you can use the following PowerShell Command to increase the number of VM’s being created/updated at one time per host.

Set-RDVirtualDesktopConcurrency

In Server 2012 you could only set the maximum number of 5 but in R2 you can configure a maximum of 20.

Before configuring this, make sure that your Storage system can handle the additional workload.
