Discussions about VDI inevitably lead to storage, which is one of the most divisive topics in desktop virtualization. Do organizations incur the cost of a SAN to spread the I/O across as many disks as possible, or do they try to execute the desktop VMs on local disks in an effort to save money on a storage infrastructure? Sometimes the decision comes down to cost, and other times it’s about the features or performance they can get with either solution, but either way, it’s one of the most important decisions you can make when planning your VDI environment.

In this presentation from Brian Madden and Gabe Knuth, we’ll discuss the differences in the solutions, and what their strengths and weaknesses are. We’ll dive into IOPS, caching, live migrations, and single image management, and all the other things you should consider when evaluating your virtual desktop storage architecture. You’ll come away from this with a better idea of which solution is right for you and your specific environment.
