Storage for Citrix Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

Citrix XenDesktop virtualization and NetApp storage: better for users, better for business, and better for IT.

The complex, variable workloads of desktop virtualization make it challenging to achieve the performance you need at a reasonable cost. Our solution blends Citrix® and NetApp® technologies—from hybrid solutions to All Flash FAS configurations—to optimize performance across all phases of the workload and for all data types.

With NetApp storage for Citrix XenDesktop® virtualization, you can:

  • Deploy, manage, and optimize virtual desktops, applications, and user data from a central console.
  • Isolate and guarantee performance to each application, eliminating the need for dedicated VDI storage.
  • Use ONTAP® nondisruptive operation to provide end users with continuous data access, even during upgrades or while adding capacity.
  • Reduce virtual desktop storage costs by 50%—guaranteed—with NetApp storage efficiency technologies, including inline deduplication, inline compression, inline data compaction, and fast, space-optimized cloning.
  • Reduce required useable storage capacity by at least 4:1 with NetApp all-flash storage—guaranteed.
