Pure Storage solutions provide fast, resilient and easily scalable all-flash performance for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). Where legacy disk or hybrid solutions suffer from VDI's ‘perfect storm’ of challenging IO, all-flash provides sub-ms latency and disruption-free performance through faults, maintenance, and upgrades. Even better, Pure Storage data reduction is inline across all workloads and frequently tops 10 to 1 with VDI, making all-flash not only far more powerful than traditional storage, but cheaper too.

Pure Storage FlashArray//m20 exceeds performance metrics required for 1500 user test at 59% capacity and a cost of less than $50/desktop.
Get an immediate return on your investment. Forrester details the many business benefits St Luke's achieved with Pure Storage all-flash for their VDI environment – including 234% ROI in only 3 months.
Ensure your users are productive whenever they work. No more worrying about IO variability from boot storms, login storms, anti-virus scanning, and overnight maintenance. No more hedging with non-persistent desktops to maintain performance. Enjoy consistent sub-ms latency across your deployment. Then go even further: you now have the power, efficiency and resilience to consolidate multiple Tier-1 workloads alongside your VDI.
Now you can deliver rich graphics-intensive workloads to your most demanding users. Pure Storage has partnered with NVIDIA to offer a validated, rich graphics virtual workstation solution that delivers a superior and mobile end-user experience – plus centralized management, cloud-simple operation, and data security.
Many VDI pilots work well – until it's time to scale-up the deployment and move into production. That’s where deployments often hit performance walls. Beginning with our sub-$50k FlashArray//m10, Pure Storage scales seamlessly and without disruption from pilot to thousands of users.

FlashStack Converged Infrastructure delivers all-flash speed and resiliency for all your workloads and simple, rapid deployments that are easy to manage. Scale seamlessly as your business grows. Fully tested, fully customizable, and fully supported.
Replacing legacy disk with Pure Storage eliminated a critical bottleneck in ULSD's VDI. Login times were more than halved, and data reduction, at 7.4:1, made all-flash less expensive than disk. The school was free to again focus on innovating and educating.
Pure Storage not only makes the end-user VDI experience faster, it makes the VDI administrator experience faster. How much more productive would you be if common VDI maintenance tasks were completed in 5x – 10x less time? Breeze through new desktop deployments, desktop migrations to rebalance infrastructure, template image patching, application installations and upgrades – and do it all without disruption.
Our goal is to accelerate and support your choice of VDI technology. We've worked closely with VMware and Citrix to ensure you get speed and resiliency regardless of platform. Pure Storage is a Horizon Fast Track 2.0 partner offering validated reference architectures and proven storage for VMware virtual desktops. Pure Storage is also a Citrix Ready Premier Partner and provides tested reference architectures and sizing guides to streamline mobile workspace solution design and deployment.
