VDI as it should be

The Challenge with VDI

Simply put, user experience is the key to success.  At the same time, affordability is also a requirement.  Inherently, the traditional approach does not accommodate for both.

Why? VDI is an IOPS-intensive workload. Because of high costs of the conventional, we’ve been forced to design around our budget, rather than the expected user experience, or to do nothing at all.

The Fundamental Problem

Windows WAS NOT designed for shared storage!

IOPS-CONSUMED

The Storage Highway

Does adding lanes to a highway solve the traffic problem? No.  If lanes equate to disk drives, why then do we continue to take the traditional approach of adding drives to the storage chassis – the storage highway? Let’s expand the analogy. If the highway is the storage chassis, and disk drives are the lanes, let’s assume that on/off ramps are virtualization server hosts, cars are the storage IO and people are the virtual desktops.

The ultimate goal is to maintain or increase the number of virtual desktops while reducing the storage footprint. Utilizing the analogy, the only true way to achieve that is by carpooling. Similarly, the only way to solve the storage IO problem is to reduce the storage IOs that are sent to the storage highway.

The Solution

By shrinking the runtime storage footprint of virtual machines and offloading the majority of IO operations to super-fast server RAM, triVDI delivers extreme performance and a fast, smooth user experience.

Key Highlights:

-Elimination of 80% of the I/O locks that slow down file systems

-Shortens queues, if they even exist, to the shortest possible length

-Increased response time from milliseconds to nanoseconds, with RAM as a storage platform

 

For the first time since VDI came to be, virtual desktops can be delivered with the performance and cost equal to or lower than their hardware counterparts.  By lowering both capacity and IO requirements of primary storage, triVDI enables a significant decrease in the most expensive piece of the puzzle.
