Desktop Virtualization: Gain Its Full Potential

Speed provisioning and reduce costs of managing your virtual desktop infrastructure with NetApp data storage solutions.


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.
