Solid-State Solutions for VDI Workloads
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is a fast-growing alternative to physical desktops. Consolidating user desktops into virtual machines on central servers simplifies desktop administration, provides flexibility for a variety of client devices, and enhances availability and security of user desktops and data. The economics of virtualization are compelling, but modern virtualized data centers have seen new and challenging demands being placed on traditional storage infrastructures. They simply cannot keep up with the explosion of data that fuel modern virtualization, enterprise application, cloud computing and database acceleration workloads. This presentation transcript discusses how solid-state storage solutions have emerged as an ideal approach to solving the inherent performance, optimization and power challenges this deluge presents.
