Unidesk Technology Partner
Nimble flash-optimized hybrid storage arrays and Unidesk are a proven combination for easy-to-manage, high-performance VDI.
Unidesk is partnering with Nimble Storage to deliver desktop virtualization solutions that are simple to deploy and manage, flexible enough to support any use case, and powerful enough to ensure a high-performance user experience. Nimble Storage and Unidesk support Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft VDI, and VMware Horizon on Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere hypervisor platforms.
Unidesk and Nimble Storage combine to offer powerful joint benefits:
- Storage Efficiency: Unidesk desktop layering technology reduces space requirements for persistent and non-persistent desktops up to 80%, enabling you to host 3-4 times more desktops - or other virtual workloads - on a single Nimble Storage system.
- Storage Performance: Unidesk layering technology optimizes the performance of Nimble’s cache architecture. With all desktops on each datastore sharing the same Windows OS and Application layer virtual disks, the majority of desktop data is delivered from the Nimble Storage flash cache, maximizing desktop IO.
- Simplicity: Unidesk and Nimble Storage are both administered through intuitive web-based interfaces. Nimble’s InfoSight portal provides a wealth of information and analytics regarding storage and IO performance, as well as real time monitoring and alerting. Unidesk layering is simply the easiest way to deploy and manage virtual desktops and applications in the cloud.
- Data Protection: The highly efficient replication in Nimble Storage arrays ensures Unidesk layers are protected in the event of a site failure. Unidesk Personalization layer snapshots offer fast, efficient desktop repair with a simple rollback and reboot.
"For customers looking to deploy VDI, cost and complexity can be deterrents. Nimble’s Adaptive Flash platform provides a high performance, scalable environment for VDI. The combination of Nimble along with Unidesk and Hyper-V further extends our ability to provide a consistent, highly responsive user experience for enterprises seeking flexible, low-cost, and easy-to-manage VDI."
