Virtual Desktop – Required Elements for a Successful Implementation

What is VDI?

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) refers to the delivery of end-user desktop environments through centralized virtualization infrastructure.  Individual desktops are hosted on one or more servers as virtual machines, and consumed via a thin-client, kiosk, mobile device, or existing desktop hardware.

 What is the value of VDI?

  • VDI can be an effective way to drive benefits for both end-users and IT administrators, including:
    • Mobility – Your desktop anywhere, any time, any device
    • Security – Increased physical and logical security of data
    • Manageability – Consistent, centrally administered policies and service-levels
    • Flexibility – Quickly spin-up test/dev environments
    • OPEX savings – Reduce operating expenses through shared infrastructure and improved manageability
  • VDI is a great use-case for Simplivity Hyperconvergence
    • Low latency and high performance, even during periods of peak demand
    • High density of desktops per node
    • Linear and granular scalability of x86 building blocks
    • Rapid deployment of new virtual desktops
    • Simplified infrastructure and management (lower OPEX)
