More organizations across a number of industries are looking at different ways to deploy VDI and solve for control of their storage and data. New methods are allowing IT shops a lot more flexibility in how they design their storage solutions, and flash is one of the most popular options. So is it really catching on? Is the world really going to solid-state?
All-flash and solid-state solutions are revolutionizing resource utilization and reshaping the economics of the data center. Many of the older premonitions we had around all-flash are quickly going away as more organizations adopt flash for its many benefits. While VDI is one of the best workloads for all-flash storage, next-generation all-flash arrays are providing a number of direct optimizations for other virtualized applications, databases, the business, and the user experience.
In this webinar we find out the use-cases and direct benefits of working with all-flash; and why the world is moving to a solid-state ecosystem! During this session we'll cover:
- New types of cost economics around flash.
- How new all-flash technologies are reducing data center footprints.
- How cost considerations around all-flash are now much different.
- In using VDI - optimize performance, management, and security!
- A look at real all-flash use-cases and best practices around deployment.
