Evaluator Group Analyst Russ Fellows to Share Key Strategies to Solving VDI Cost & Performance Challenges

VNM103112 – SAN DIEGO, Calif. – October 31, 2012 – Astute NetworksTM, Inc., the leading provider of performance storage for virtual machines, today announced a webinar to help companies overcome the performance and cost obstacles to ensure a successful VDI deployment. The webinar, titled “Rethinking Virtual Desktop Infrastructure; New Approaches to solving VDI Cost & Performance Challenges,” will take place on November 15, 2012 at 8:30 a.m. EDT. Russ Fellows, senior partner and strategic analyst at Evaluator Group, and Len Rosenthal, senior vice president of marketing will present best practices for IT managers to ensure a successful VDI implementation.

In almost every VDI deployment, IT managers are faced with a series of challenges in their journey to a successful VDI implementation, whether it is network considerations (latency and bandwidth), server considerations (amount & type of servers) or storage architecture (capacity of storage, type of storage). Successful deployments become an even bigger challenge if IT organizations are relying on traditional storage arrays to meet performance needs.

Accelerating I/O-intensive virtualized applications such as VDI deployments are best enabled by applying flash-based solid state storage technology in the right place in the I/O path. All flash products are not created equal. A purpose-built solution that is low cost, high-performance, installed in minutes and easily managed by the virtual server administrator is ideal.

IT Directors, VDI and Virtual Server Administrators, Virtualization Architects, and Storage Managers will gain insight into:
• Root causes of VDI performance challenges
• Pros and cons of various solid state-based approaches to solving these challenges
• Benefits of Flash-based technology & where networked flash provides the most benefit
• How ViSX Flash VM Storage Appliances are purpose-built to optimize VDI environments
