As part of its digital strategy, the Council wanted to implement a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) to give its staff the ability to be more mobile and efficient. However, its legacy storage wasn’t able to deliver the required performance consistently.

 

  • Legacy storage had become expensive to maintain and was reaching its end of life.
  • Digital transformation strategy needed better speed and performance from storage.
  • Growing data sets meant storage was nearing capacity.
  • High latency made applications slow to use, wasting time for users and the IT team.
