Get this 36-page technical report and learn how to deploy 1,000 virtual desktops using VMware View 5.1 with VMware vSphere 5, Cisco UCS, and a single 3U Nimble Storage array. This validated solution provides efficient infrastructure, adaptive performance, rapid provisioning, linear scalability, and dramatically simplified management.
For this white paper, IDC performed an in-depth analysis of the business value of VMware View, defined as the expected ROI associated with the use of the solution as a platform for the targeted deployment of a virtual desktop infrastructure.
Organizations worldwide are using virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to run virtual desktops in the
datacenter and deliver these to employees as a managed service. End users gain a familiar, personalized
environment they can access anywhere from any device, while administrators gain control and security. With
VMware® Horizon View™ (formerly VMware View), IT professionals can implement a VDI infrastructure to help
drive down operational costs, enhance security, and support a mobile workforce.
The workforce is going mobile. According to Forrester, more than half of employees carry at least three
devices for work. And many are bringing their own smartphones, tablets, and other devices to work, a
phenomenon that’s grown so popular it now has its own acronym—Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).
So it comes as no surprise that, according a survey by SpiceWorks, 60% of small and medium businesses are
considering using a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) as part of their BYOD strategy. Many of these organizations
are relying on VMware® Horizon View™ (formerly VMware View), because it enables organizations to implement a
VDI infrastructure that reduces operational costs, enhances security and supports a mobile workforce.

If you are a healthcare professional, then you and your organization are caught between the horns of compliance and improving the patient experience. With the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) now in full effect, the days of lax enforcement are over. First-time penalties or violations can reach up to $250,000. The transition to EMR/EHR use, along with all of the systems and equipment upgrading that entails, will be done and done well – or else. Penalties can also extend to your organization’s business associates.
These are interesting and challenging times to be in business. Digital forces, such as the cloud, big data, mobility, and mobile apps are disrupting tried-and-true business models, as well as entire industries.
These transformational advances are producing complexity, while workers are demanding simplicity. They require centralized infrastructures to keep information safe, even as agility and flexibility rule the day.

More and more businesses are embracing workplace mobility and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategies as a method to reduce costs and stimulate productivity. These initiatives give employees, contractors, and business partners the power to remotely contribute, collaborate, and communicate with team members from familiar devices, anywhere around the world. To implement these strategies effectively however, IT teams must provide access to applications, business systems, collaboration platforms, and development environments without sacrificing end-user experiences, hindering their organization’s security posture, or inducing excessive costs. What many are finding is that traditional methods of desktop and application delivery and on-premises Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) often cannot live up to this task, as they introduce new challenges upon implementation.
Has your organization been dealing with storage latency and performance issues?
With a population of nearly 10 million people, Los Angeles County is the most populous county in the United States. It's no surprise that with 1.5 million people taking public transportation every day to help ease some of LA County's infamous traffic, making sure passengers get where they're going is a monumental task.
At the heart of it all is the organization's IT department. The LA Metro infrastructure consists of 600 servers, 500 of which are virtualized. When the city's IT team began receiving user complaints and experiencing performance issues with their Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environment, they began looking for alternatives.
Download the case study now and learn how replacing the city's existing storage solution helped solve a wide range of technical problems and eliminated unnecessary latency, ensuring all 1.5 million passengers got where they needed to be.
Desktop management at any scale is a tedious job. Imaging, reimaging, and troubleshooting desktop systems consume valuable IT resources, and keep employees from being productive. Securing the information generated on desktops, tablets, and smartphones is no simple job either.
Many organizations are deploying virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI) for these reasons. But for deployment to be successful, computing and storage infrastructures must deliver high-quality, predictable, and productive user experiences.
Often, the best way to accomplish this is through flash-based storage solutions due to its low latency/high IOPS nature. Unfortunately many IT professionals aren't sure what type of flash array is best for their needs or how to ensure that all elements of their VDI work seamlessly.
Download now and learn how to validate a provide VDI configuration across NexGen N5 Hybrid Flash Array, VMWare Horizon View, Cisco Unified Computing System™(UCS), and Cisco Nexus Switches.
How do you know what the right storage set up is for you? How do you ensure that you're using best practices when implementing?
As IT virtualization continues to become more and more prevalent, the storage component of the virtualization architecture continues to play a critical role in performance and availability. Additionally, the ability to benchmark and predict storage performance in a virtualized environment is essential to an efficient and well-run VDI setup.
Download now and learn how to select and size the best storage array for your VMWare deployment to maximize your VM density and increase ROI.
