How to Accelerate Large-Scale VMware Horizon Success with FlashStack from Cisco

Converged Infrastructure solutions sound great on paper, but what happens in real life in an enterprise deployment? Can CI designs deliver enterprise performance, resilience, scalability AND management simplicity? How can you provide awesome end-user experience without breaking the bank? Talk to Cisco and Pure architects as well as customers on how FlashStack is able to address the most critical success factors with a tested and validated 5,000 seat desktop virtualization architecture.

What we’ll answer:
How is VDI now able to deliver virtualized desktops to nearly all users in an enterprise? How do I break through performance barriers needed to provide end-user experience better than physical desktops? Isn’t the cost of all-flash storage going to blow my budget? If I’m supporting thousands of users on VDI, how do I keep up with management and support overhead of so many users? What architecture considerations and best practices should I keep in mind for large scale VDI? Is dedicated infrastructure a requirement for VDI? Hear from not only Pure and Cisco architects, but customers who have architected successful enterprise VDI deployments.

  • House your Big Data by the Lake: How Flash Storage Enhances your Oracle Database Jun 7 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Alex Infanzon, Application Solutions Manager, Pure Storage
    Most industry analysts agree that big data warehouses, built on a relational database, will continue to be the primary analytic database for storing much of the company’s core transactional data. These data warehouses will be augmented by big data systems. Even though this new information architecture consists of multiple physical data repositories and formats, the logical architecture is a single integrated data platform, spanning the relational data warehouse and the data lake.
