Deploying VDI can be stressful. Desktop operating systems, originally designed to have dedicated storage, now have to share. And, compared to server virtualization, VDI requires that more layers in the stack work well together. As the foundation of the infrastructure stack, the storage system that runs VDI must adapt to its demands for very high performance, and dynamic loads. No wonder storage often makes up half the cost of IT infrastructure in a VDI deployment.

VDI demands flash performance, and Nimble Storage’s Adaptive Flash platform for VDI delivers.  But delivering on immediate performance requirements is only one aspect of a stress-free VDI deployment.

VDI performance analysis through InfoSight

Next week, Courtney Burry, VMware’s director of product marketing, and I will be presenting, “Stress-Free Storage for VDI,” at the VMware EUC Insights event on Tuesday, June 17th, from 9:00 to 9:30 am. Among the topics to be covered, I will be discussing how:

  • Nimble Storage delivers both performance and capacity for VDI
  • You can scale performance and capacity as needs change
  • InfoSight’s™ cloud-based analytics can help you stay stress-free
  • Our SmartStack™ reference architectures with VMware and Cisco can speed time to deployment

Nimble Storage SmartStack for VDIAs a bonus, a Nimble customer will detail how he deployed a SmartStack converged infrastructure solution to virtualize both desktops and servers.

Sign up now to attend VMware EUC Insights, and “Stress-Free Storage for VDI,” and to visit Nimble’s virtual booth. We’ll have staff on hand to answer any questions you may have, and we’re looking forward to having you join us at the event.
