Pulling off a successful VDI implementation is no mean feat. Most fail the first time around, often because the storage on the back-end is not designed to handle the load when thousands of users log in. Unacceptable user performance and cost overruns will cause virtual desktop infrastructure projects to grind to a halt, with users demanding their old laptops back.
Taking a thoughtful approach to implementing VDI, considering performance at every layer of the infrastructure, especially storage, and being able to diagnose performance issues quickly, is crucial to a VDI rollout. We’ll discuss this and other important metrics and best practices for getting VDI into production successfully.
