When your customers move to a virtual desktop infrastructure, you must first consider the types of endpoint devices that best fit their needs. Read this whitepaper to learn more about customers’ VDI needs so you can select the best-fitting endpoint device for your customer. By choosing a ViewSonic VDI endpoint solution, your customers will benefit from best-in-class VDI endpoint performance for VMware, Citrix and Microsoft virtual desktop infrastructures.
Virtualization provides organizations with many costs savings and significant business agility. One virtualization technology that many organizations take advantage of is called virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). VDI empowers employees and employers with many benefits, no matter the size of the organization. One such benefit with VDI is the ability to provide centrally managed desktop environments to employees on any device. In doing so, the organization can rest assured that information is always accessed and managed in a secure fashion – regardless of where the user is accessing information from.
Many organizations are evaluating the move to desktop virtualization, and solution providers can help customers make the transition to a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Solution providers can tap into this growing market and provide related products and services, but competing in the market comes with challenges such as understanding the business needs of customers in a variety of industries. This Everything Channel Starter Pack describes the desktop virtualization opportunities and how Avnet's SolutionsPath® methodology provides a step-by-step methodology to overcome challenges through solution specialization. Among the potential benefits for solution providers are revenue growth, faster time to market and increased customer retention.
Examine the common operational and business challenges of traditional desktop management facing SMB organizations, including infrastructure investment and implementation-related IT services and costs. Get a clear understanding how Citrix VDI-in-a-Box, an affordable, predictable turnkey VDI package, offers unique advantages compared to other VDI solutions and why SMBs can now realize the same enterprise-class desktop virtualization benefits.
Examine the top five VDI considerations from an SMB point of view and compare two approaches to implementing VDI: the traditional enterprise VDI architecture and VDI-in-a-Box with a shared-nothing architecture.
This video shows you how the new Citrix VDI-in-a-Box 5 makes deploying virtual desktops easier, more intuitive and simpler than ever before. With a completely revamped administration interface, the latest HDX technology stack, expanded hypervisor choices to include Microsoft Hyper-V and a completely integrated Citrix offering, VDI-in-a-Box 5 makes virtual desktops a breeze.
This video shows you how easy it is to deploy VDI-in-a-Box and highlights all the Citrix products with which it works. You can go from zero to production in under an hour. Its open architecture runs on the most popular hypervisors: Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware VSphere.

Based on the power of the ZFS file system, NexentaStor offers superior price/performance over traditional storage solutions for VDI, overcoming limitations of many traditional storage solutions and supporting a virtually unlimited numbers of files, file systems, and snapshots. NexentaStor leverages commodity, heterogeneous storage to deliver an economical yet high-performing solution for write-intensive VDI workloads, especially when SSDs are deployed to further reduce write latencies.
Companies are increasingly using outside contractors and suppliers stay competitive, which means granting third-parties access to applications via VPN or VDI. This reliance causes increased complexity and burden on the Enterprise team while also creating additional security risk, as third-party access creates additional points of entry to an organization’s network.

HPE 3PAR StoreServ was built to meet the extreme requirements of massively consolidated cloud service providers. Its remarkable speed—3M+ IOPS—and proven system architecture has been extended to transform mainstream midrange and enterprise deployments, with solutions from a few TBs up to 15PB scale.
Imagine the benefits that a VDI environment could realize during a boot storm. All the VMs are based on the same template, and therefore they all have the same set of files during initial boot. Normally, 100 VMs all booting at the same time would require a significant number of HDDs, but with this hyperconverged infrastructure platform, the first VM to boot reads the block off the HDD, which promotes that block into cache. Now the next 99 VMs can all access that same block from cache. That’s a 100:1 IOPS reduction on the IOPS-bound disks.
Transforming IT to meet the emerging requirements of a rapidly advancing digital economy is a priority for most companies today. Market economies and quickly evolving digital interactions are driving new and increasing demands on IT infrastructure for organizations of all kinds – from small businesses to enterprises to public institutions. IT requirements to support a variety of digital use paradigms (personal devices, IoT, VMs, VDI) are changing quickly, and organizations need to respond in order to be competitive in this evolving digital world.
The latest generation of PowerEdge servers powered by Intel® Xeon® processors can deliver differentiated business agility over older-generation infrastructure. IDC asserted that updating servers can help businesses deploy applications up to 22 percent faster and improve application performance up to 29 percent over outdated infrastructure.

The cloud, virtualization, and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) help make IT's life easier — and the whole organization more agile — but each of these features also presents serious security challenges. Although there is no one-size-fits-all solution to managing security in the enterprise 2.0 world, the enhanced security features and user-centric offerings in Microsoft Windows Server 2012 make security a much more comfortable proposition for IT. Read this technology brief to learn how Windows Server 2012 helps to mitigate risks and streamline compliance, as well.
It’s a new era in IT. The end-user workforce is mobile, social, and putting huge strains on your Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). It’s time for a new model, one that liberates you from costly infrastructure maintenance and delivers the service and availability end-users demand.
