VDI

Unleash storage and compute performance without added complexity

Provide seamless high performance for a diverse mix of VMware users—whether on persistent desktops or linked clones—even at scale. Eliminate storage bottlenecks and drive responsive desktops, fast apps, and quick logins.

Drive VMware Horizon 7 on Nutanix

Discover the advantages of using the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud to seamlessly scale and deliver consistent, robust performance for VMware Horizon 7 with this validated reference architecture.

Powering the Digital Workspace

Accelerate Your VMware Deployments

Whether you are planning to deploy virtual desktops or virtualize your end-user applications, Nutanix gives you the ideal platform to succeed. The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud running VMware Horizon View can be up and serving desktops in a fraction of the time it takes with traditional SANs. Start small with initial deployments for one hundred end users or less, and linearly scale to tens of thousands of users without any upfront costs, additional performance overhead, or complex management.

Simplify VDI Administration

Leverage space efficient, high-performance VM-cloning and VMware View Composer Array Integration (VCAI) to provision end-user desktops in minutes with little extra storage capacity required.

Out-of-the-box Deployment

Deliver ready-to-deploy VMs or virtual desktops in 60 minutes, managed from the virtualization console.

Predictable Scale-out

Achieve predictable VDI scaling, paying only as you grow, and moving from pilot to production without re-architecting storage.

Minimize Boot Storm Impact

Boot as many as 800 desktops in six minutes using Nutanix Shadow Clone, the ideal complement to VMware Linked Clones.

Minimize Risk and Lower Costs

Minimize infrastructure risk by providing predictability and reliability as your desktop and application projects scale from pilot to full-scale production environments with fully-validate and tested solutions.

Eliminate Sizing Risk

Define VDI in terms of end-user requirements and eliminate performance risk.

Deliver Business Continuity

Deploy highly available desktops in mission-critical environments using built-in, VM-centric replication and DR.

Lower Costs

Lower CapEx by up to 50% versus 3-tier infrastructure and reduce OpEx with VM-centric management and automation, and VCAI integration.

Power VDI on Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Explore a new approach to VDI that allows you to focus on providing EUC services and applications, rather than spending precious time and resources managing the infrastructure.
