Storage is a critical part of any desktop virtualization solution. Desktop virtualization software allows you to deploy and manage desktop environments and applications centrally. You can provide user access to a virtual desktop over standard network infrastructure without affecting your users’ level of control over their desktop environments. However, many of the potential advantages of desktop virtualization can be limited by higher storage costs and inflexible infrastructure. With NetApp® storage, you can:
- Reduce VDI storage costs by deduplication of redundant data stored across virtual desktops, user directories, and backup and DR copies.
- Provision thousands of virtual desktops in minutes with nearly instant, low-overhead storage cloning.
- Provide users continuous access to their virtual desktops with 99.999% storage availability, automated disaster recovery, and VDI performance acceleration that addresses desktop boot or login storms.
- Back up all virtual desktops and user data directly on the storage system while cost-effectively keeping a daily history of every desktop for months or years.
With NetApp you can get the flexibility, high availability, and cost effectiveness required to grow your virtual desktop environment.
NETAPP CAN HELP YOU REALIZE THE FULL POTENTIAL OF YOUR VIRTUAL DESKTOP INFRASTRUCTURE (VDI) WITH STORAGE THAT’S FLEXIBLE, AVAILABLE, AND COST EFFECTIVE.
