EMC ScaleIO for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
EMC ScaleIO for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure enables you to successfully tackle the four challenges that stand between you and an economically viable virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployment:
- Storage costs – Traditional storage often represents 40 to 50 percent of VDI project costs, often rendering the deployment economically unviable.
- Elasticity – VDI projects often start small and then grow fast to many hypervisor servers. Providing the right size of storage area network (SAN) for each stage of this growth presents challenges in dynamically growing scale-out storage.
- Performance – Running large numbers of virtual desktops per hypervisor requires storage that can share capacity across physical servers and reallocate performance to the relevant servers as needed.
- Management – Simplifying IT operations and management is often one of the main VDI deployment objectives. The storage selected should support this objective, reducing labor-intensive storage tasks to a minimum.
EMC ScaleIO provides elastic, high-performance, highly scalable, self-healing storage that perfectly addresses the main challenges of VDI deployments.
