SlideShare: Achieving VDI Success Without All-Flash Problems

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.
