Virtualizing and centralizing computer desktops enables end-user computing environments, such as desktops, laptops, tablets, and cellphones, to be controlled from a central point. However, decoupling applications, data, and the operating system from the end-point and moving these components into the datacenter, results in a more streamlined and secure way to manage users.
This whitepaper explains the following considerations that must be acknowledged prior to selecting a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI):
- Performance: Aspects that are essential for a successful VDI user experience.
- Predictable User Experience: What virtual desktop users expect.
- Cost: Finding an affordable alternative.
- Flexible Scalability: Ensuring that your storage system can scale to meet VDI demands.
- Storage Sprawl: The benefits of running VDI alongside other applications.
- Validation with Your VDI Platform of Choice: Having documentation that the storage is, in fact, validated.
