In this StorageShort George Crump, Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland discusses one of the best ways to cost justify flash for virtual desktop infrastructures; use the flash array for more than just VDI.
Some all-flash and hybrid systems deliver enough performance to host not only a very dense VDI environment (high virtual desktop to server ratio) they can also, at the same time, support other environments like databases and the virtual server environments. Consolidation is just one of the ways to cost justify a flash environment. For all the details see our article “Cost Justifying Flash For VDI Storage”. In it you will learn how flash can create a denser VDI implementation, drive down capacity needs and drive up user adoption.
