VDI on SSD: How to scale, consolidate virtual desktops

Geekout 365 with Joel McKelvey from Pure Storage


Five years ago when infrastructure admins put virtual desktop workloads on the same storage hardware as other workloads, VDI performance flopped—and storage was to blame for its failures. Why?

Nonlinearity: if you had 1,000 desktops but wanted to scale to 2,000, you needed twice as much infrastructure. User growth demanded a new approach to storage expansion and performance, which is where flash entered.

By tuning into this Geekout 365 webcast, you’ll see Gabe Knuth sitting down with Joel McKelvey, Director of Infrastructure Solutions at Pure Storage, to discuss the evolution of storage for VDI, and how flash systems can consolidate these workloads.

Watch now as Joel also runs down the technical features of Pure’s flash systems, and for which workloads they are best suited.
