Research carried out with readers of The Register tells us that virtualisation has permeated into the consciousness of the mainstream IT user and buyer community. However, as we move from x86 server to desktop virtualisation we find varying levels of understanding. 'Desktop virtualisation' can be taken to mean client partitioning, 'traditional' Windows Terminal or Citrix-based thin client activity or virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

Read this whitepaper to navigate through the End User Experience Monitoring (EUEM) landscape. Learn how traditional APM and device monitoring products provide some aspects of End User Experience Monitoring, but can often leave enterprise IT Ops teams blind to what their workforce users are actually experiencing.
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.
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.

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.
With server virtualization now well established in the world's datacenters, IT leaders are turning their attention to virtualizing and centralizing desktop PCs to address some of their toughest computing challenges:
. Managing complex end-user hardware and software infrastructure
. Securing networks and information assets
. Supporting a global workforce in an environment of constant change

Business leaders are increasingly looking to IT to deliver a mobile workspace that allows employees to access corporate data, applications, and communication resources on their devices of choice. But making the most of the opportunity while minimizing risks can be complex and overwhelming for many IT teams. Therefore, it makes more sense than ever for IT leaders to consider virtual client computing (VCC), also commonly referred to as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions.
