Brian Madden & Steve O'Donnell chat about GreenBytes virtual desktop storage solutions
There are many different vendors in the VDI space who all try to "solve" VDI in different ways. Some are successful while others are not. In this free-form video conversation, independent industry expert Brian Madden and GreenBytes CEO Steve O'Donnell discuss GreenBytes' approach to VDI. Rather than trying to "re-architect" the Windows desktop at the broker or layering level, GreenBytes does everything at the storage layer, implementing flash-based block-level deduplication in hardware and software. The result is completely transparent to the user, as companies can deploy VDI that looks and feels 100% like the "pre-VDI" laptop and desktop environments. Combine traditional Windows management techniques, familiar desktops, and site-to-site deduplicated replication, and you've got a chance at making VDI succeed in your own environment!
