Citrix PVS replacement in vSphere environment – Non-Persistent disk perhaps

Read an interesting article on non-persistent disks from Cormac Hogan recently and got me thinking.

Number of Citrix shops have enterprise licensing schemes but would love to get the “image”-type functionality that comes with PVS, unfortunately either a pricey upgrade to platinum is out of the question for most out there.
Did make think for workarounds for this, one possibility would be to use non-persistent disks and CBRC to help handle the load. Not sure if other folks have looked into this but will investigate further
to see.
