Desktop virtualization lets you deploy and manage desktop environments and applications from a central location, and allows users to access and control their virtual desktop environments over standard network infrastructure. Storage is a critical part of the overall solution. Higher storage costs and inflexible infrastructure can offset desktop virtualization’s many advantages. With NetApp storage, you can:
- Reduce Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) storage costs by deduplicating data stored across virtual desktops, user directories, and backup and DR copies.
- Provision thousands of virtual desktops in minutes with nearly instant, low-overhead storage cloning.
- Provide users continuous access with 99.999% storage availability, automated disaster recovery, and VDI performance acceleration that addresses desktop boot or login storms.
- Back up all virtual desktops and user data directly on the storage system and keep a cost-effective daily history of every desktop for months or years.
