How to Accelerate Virtual Desktop Deployment: A Cisco & Pure Storage Case Study


Many organizations are looking to virtual desktops and apps to improve productivity, security, and control — but building infrastructure for large-scale Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp deployments can be challenging. While some infrastructure approaches are limited in reliability or ability to scale, this session will present a highly performant, highly available and easy to manage approach to Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp deployments with the FlashStack Converged Infrastructure from Cisco and Pure Storage. In this session, Cisco and Pure Storage VDI solution architects will share test results of a recent Cisco Validated Design for FlashStack with XenDesktop and XenApp for 5000 users. Specifically discussed is how real world users can quickly deploy Citrix virtual apps and desktops, scale performance with user demand, and keep costs low through a repeatable, reliable converged infrastructure approach to VDI. This is also the first FlashStack CVD using Windows® 10 64-bit and Office® 2016 as the base OS desktop and Office Suite, respectively, proving that FlashStack delivers the horsepower needed to power the latest innovations from Microsoft.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

- Successfully deploy Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp at scale faster to support high-productivity user workspaces
- Leverage the power of Cisco UCS stateless computing to deploy your network, storage and compute faster and more consistently than any other platform on the market
- Leverage FlashStack to complement Citrix by keeping virtual desktops and apps online and high-performing with minimal admin effort
