Webinar: Achieving VDI Success Without All-Flash Problems

Watch On Demand

The goal of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is to lower the operational costs of supporting an organization’s desktops and laptops. A VDI project should make it easier for IT to support users, keep the organization safe from viruses and better protect its data assets. The key to a successful VDI project is user adoption. But while many organizations consider using an All-Flash Array (AFA) to deliver the performance that will lead to user adoption, the problem is AFAs drive up the cost per desktop, increase the vulnerability of the architecture and encourage additional storage silos.

Listen to the on demand webinar with Storage Switzerland and Cloudistics that will provide an alternative approach that meets user’s performance expectations while leveraging existing – and often already paid for – storage hardware and does not introduce new silos of storage.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How AFA Vendors try to Overcome the Cost per Desktop Challenge
  • How AFAs Lead to a more Fragmented Storage Architecture
  • How to Introduce Storage Sanity into the VDI Infrastructure

Registrants will receive a copy of Storage Switzerland’s VDI educational white paper, “VDI’s Fork in The Road Problem”. The paper describes how to make the right decision when they come to the fork in the road that all VDI projects face; a choice between performance and low cost per desktop.

Twelve years ago George Crump founded Storage Switzerland with one simple goal; to educate IT professionals about all aspects of data center storage. He is the primary contributor to Storage Switzerland and is a heavily sought after public speaker. With over 25 years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers across the US, he has seen the birth of such technologies as RAID, NAS and SAN, Virtualization, Cloud and Enterprise Flash. Prior to founding Storage Switzerland he was CTO at one of the nation's largest storage integrators where he was in charge of technology testing, integration and product selection.

    Can we deploy the turbine in existing environment.

    Presently, we have a VDI environment deploy with the EMC Atmos and VNX however, we are facing significant performance concern.

    Question :-
    1. Can we deploy turbine in the existing environment?
    2. If yes, how it can be done?
    3. Can we achieve the benefit of Write Combining and Coalescing tech in old evironment

    As per the seminar, with turbine we could achieve IO Reduction and Write Combining and Coalescing tech if we will deploy the turbine in the initial stage however, can we exploit the benefit of these algo for old evironment?

    Can this product fetch already written data in background and normalize the datalayout inorder achieve full benefit of the Turbine.
