Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) on Hyperconverged Systems

Desktop and application virtualization deployments also known as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure are increasingly common in today’s mobile friendly IT environments. VDI is not only being driven by IT departments to efficiently support growing end user computing needs, they are also needed to support bring your own device initiatives, unfettered mobile access to applications and data, and improved security.

Unfortunately traditional three-tier based VDI architectures with separate storage and compute (servers) bring complexity, inflexible resource provisioning, and fragmented infrastructure management, which can offset the advantages of desktop virtualization. Moreover these infrastructure issues are magnified as desktop and application projects scale from pilot to full-scale production environments.

Nutanix hyperconverged solution helps you address these challenges by eliminating unpredictable user performance, burdensome operational costs and high capital costs. Nutanix web-scale architecture is ideal for virtual desktop infrastructure. It consolidates compute (server) and the storage into a single, 100% software defined appliance that comes ready to run VMware Horizon with View, VMware Horizon Air, Citrix XenDesktop, and Citrix XenApp.
