Workload and Topology Overview

It is critical to ensure that the workloads and workflows are understood and validated as they are a critical factor in determining the best profile and sizing to utilize within the entire environment. The reference architecture in this document outlines a workflow with Creators / Designers, Reviewers, and End Client as users across the various mobile workstations and workstations. Your specific environment will differ so a POC (Proof of Concept) is critical to ensure that the performance is acceptable for your set of users.
