Organizations looking to implement desktop and app virtualization traditionally play a guessing game where storage is concerned. When considering local and physical storage, determining what would be necessary for the virtualized world is difficult and can be overwhelming. This is especially true when determining how virtualizing desktops will impact the storage architecture. Organizations risk over sizing their environment thereby wasting CapEx, or under-sizing and potentially ruining the user experience. Software-defined storage solutions, such as VMware Virtual SAN, provide simplified solutions with high performance data stores that offer fine-grained scalability with linearly-predictable performance as demand grows. Dell’s validated and certified desktop virtualization solutions incorporate vSphere and Virtual SAN, and provide a complete end-to-end solution that allows companies to grow and expand without large capital investments in SAN hardware.

Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is giving organizations the agility to respond quickly to demand for new products, services and applications. Many organisations begin their HCI journey by targeting specific use cases such as virtual desktop infrastructure, disaster recovery and remote office-branch office environments. But HCI continues to evolve far beyond these use cases. In this case study, we look at real world deployments to identify how HCI is helping businesses to reduce TCO, improve scalability and rapidly adopt new technologies.

VMware Horizon View is an enterprise-class desktop virtualization solution that delivers virtualized or remote desktops and applications to end users through a single platform. Horizon View is a tightly integrated, end-to-end solution built on the industry-leading virtualization platform, VMware vSphere. Although Horizon View enables levels of availability and agility of desktop services unmatched by traditional PCs, the complexity of deploying and managing thousands of virtual desktops in a VMware environment can be daunting without the right tools. Storage is often the leading cause of end-user performance problems. The NetApp all-flash FAS solution with the FAS8000 platform solves the performance problems commonly found in VDI deployments. In this reference architecture, NetApp tested VMware Horizon View user and administrator workloads to demonstrate how the NetApp all-flash FAS solution eliminates the most common barriers to virtual desktop adoption.

Windows 10 requires 32% more graphics consumption than Windows 7, which means in a virtual desktop environment, the end user experiences slow performance, and applications that won’t launch. When the OS is deployed using graphics processing units (GPUs) these additional processing requirements can be offloaded, enhancing overall performance. Download this white paper to learn 4 ways GPUs can help improve your Windows 10 deployments in a virtualized environment.
