BriForum – Disruptive Innovations in Storage: What do They Mean for VDI?
July 22, 2014 @ 9:55 am - 10:55 pm
A new cycle of innovation in the storage industry is shaking up familiar architectures and technologies. This disruption promises to drive down costs and simplify storage in the data center. However, virtual desktop workloads are unique with high consolidation ratios and the importance of end user experience. They are not the same as general server workloads – how are these innovations relevant in a virtual desktop environment?:
- Solid state and memory technologies
- All-flash and hybrid arrays
- Hyper-Converged systems
- Software-defined storage & services
Join Scott Davis, former CTO of VMware’s End User Computing business unit and now CTO of Infinio, to learn more about the next wave of data center storage technologies. Scott will describe each of these new innovations, explaining their architecture and how they each fit into the virtual desktop stack. The session will close with a comparison of the different technologies and their suitability for virtual desktop environments.
