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.
Join Storage Switzerland and Cloudistics for an informative webinar 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.

As we enter 2016, hyper-converged infrastructure appliances are gaining steam as a means to achieve agile IT resource allocation in software-defined data centers. However, many planners are discovering that fast-deploy server/storage appliances often fall short in terms of hosted VM performance. Perceived application performance is the make-or-break of modern IT service strategy and faster is definitely better. The challenges to achieving stellar application performance in virtualized hyper-converged infrastructure are many, but I/O latency is ultimately the first and often the most important hurdle to overcome. Most solutions offered by storage and hypervisor software vendors fall short of tackling the latency challenge, since doing so really requires more than just memory caching, log structuring or I/O pipelining. What is needed is parallel I/O processing.
In this webinar, you will learn how to:
- Obtain up to 300x reduction in latency and up to 15x improvement in data throughput – even with commodity server and storage gear
- Harness the untapped power of multi-core processors to create a parallel engine for processing I/O
- Reduce your infrastructure costs while learning more about a hyper-converged solution that achieved $0.08 per SPC-1 IOPS™
The results have been documented in a just-published report from the Storage Performance Council that should be required reading for any IT planner.
Join us as industry analyst, Jon Toigo walks through the benchmark results to describe the best performing and lowest cost solution for achieving application performance in the market today.
There is a rapid expansion of flash storage deployment in data centers. To become more agile for real-time business, IT organizations have modernized their core infrastructure through software-defined and flash technologies.
