What:
StorTrends, from American Megatrends, Inc. (AMI), and SANDirect will host a Virtual Lunch-n-Learn to explore the benefits of flash storage for virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI). The live discussion will focus on the numerous variables associated with VDI projects, including user types and performance requirements, as well as address the costs and common issues that administrators encounter when scoping VDI implementations. This event is intended for IT professionals interested in learning how flash storage arrays can benefit them in their current or future VDI environments.

Agenda Highlights:

  • Light, medium or heavy - what type of VDI user are you? (And, what does that mean for you in regards to hardware, power consumption, rack space, reliability, scalability, cost, etc.?)
  • Why do some VDI deployments fail? What are the common pitfalls during install and ongoing management?
  • Which storage tiers are best suited to handle which VDI workloads?
  • What are the all-flash, hybrid flash and/or spinning disk benefits and/or limitations in today's VDI environments?

Presenters:
Robert Lennon, CEO, SANDirect
James Dyckowski, Senior Solutions Engineer, StorTrends
