Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)


What's the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure?

VDI is a desktop-centric service that hosts user desktop environments on remote servers and storage systems, which are accessed over a network using a remote display protocol. Enterprises are converting physical desktops to Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) since it provides efficient hardware utilization and centralized management while reducing costs.


Versatile Storage Performance for Flexible VDI Deployment

Infortrend storage has been designed with extensive virtualization support, offering user-friendly features that make VDI configuration easier and more efficient. Our storage delivers optimal performance with Hybrid Drive technology (HDD/SSD) and flexible SAS drive options that allows versatile VDI deployment from light-weight to heavy workload. Our storage is also compatible with industry-leading solutions such as VMware, Citrix and Windows.

Infortrend storage offers wide-ranging storage choices and performance-level that support flexible VDI deployment from light-weight to heavy workload and from small work-group to large Enterprise environment.

Versatile Storage Performance for Flexible VDI Deployment

Hybrid Storage Solutions for Boot Storm

One of the major challenges in VDI implementation is Boot Storm. Boot storm occurs when all the virtual machines are powered on simultaneously. To overcome such a challenge, Infortrend storage features SSD cache to cache all the hot data from desktops at the moment of boot up or Automated Storage Tiering to ensure hot data are stored in SSD pool tier for fast access.
