Pure Storage Reference Architecture for Citrix XenDesktop
While computer speeds and capabilities have accelerated exponentially, disk-based performance has remained stagnant. Attempting to run virtualized applications on a hard-disk drive (HDD) based storage infrastructure will inevitably lead you towards scaling and performance problems.
This white paper provides a demonstration of the ease with which Citrix XenDesktop based Windows 7 desktops can be deployed on a Pure Storage FlashArray. Read on to find implementation details and recommendations in addition to performance and scalability findings.
