Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Systems Put VDI on Cruise Control
Hyper-converged infrastructure makes delivering virtual desktops easier, because all the back-end resources -- including central management software -- run together in one isolated, tightly integrated location.
Hyper-converged infrastructure systems can fundamentally change how an organization approaches VDI, including reducing IT's management workload and making it easier to resolve data center issues.
Virtual desktops can benefit IT and workers, but only if a deployment is set up and managed properly, and has all the necessary back-end resources. One issue with VDI is that it's an easy scapegoat. Boot storms, CPU loading, density issues, profile entanglement, network congestion and virtual machine (VM) resource contention are all pain points that often result in fingers pointing at the VDI deployment.
