Converged Infrastructure: A Winning VDI Solution


Customer

Woolpert wanted a high-performance virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to support key segments of its distributed workforce who collaborate on architectural and engineering projects. By adopting a FlashStack™, a joint converged infrastructure solution from Cisco and Pure Storage, the firm now has a robust VDI with high reliability, simplified deployment and effortless management.

Challenges

  • Geographically dispersed professionals were hampered in gaining fast access to large CAD files.
  • Optimal productivity of a small IT staff was stymied by complex infrastructure management.
  • Extending high-performance and reliable VDI to branch offices and remote workers was impacted by subpar infrastructure performance.

Use Case

  • VSI – VMware® vSphere®
  • VDI – VMware® Horizon®

Business Transformation

  • Professionals in multiple locations across the country have quick, easy access to the data and applications they need to effectively collaborate with other team members on architectural and engineering projects. The IT staff spends far less time on system management, thanks to the pre-tested reference design of the FlashStack converged infrastructure that seamlessly integrates best-of-breed compute, networking and storage products from multiple suppliers.

IT Transformation

  • New VDI users are added easily, and receive immediate access to large files and vital applications.
  • Overall efficiency reduces the cost and footprint of the VDI infrastructure. High data-compression rates provided by all-flash arrays reduce the amount of storage capacity needed to handle all centralized files.
  • Pre-tested FlashStack reference design reduces the time and cost of deploying new IT infrastructure.
“The totality of the FlashStack implementation is impressive.”
