“The session particularly delves into the challenge of runaway costs and how to avoid adding CAPEX and OPEX,” Rohrer said. “We will also take a close look at how to measure current input/output per second by user and by application.”
Other major VDI project aspects covered by the presentation:
- Why storage sizing is so important
- Evaluating persistent versus non-persistent desktops
- Best practices for user-authored data stores
- Ensuring a quality user environment
“Everyone knows that while VDI holds tremendous promise, the cost and complexity have caused many organizations to put VDI projects on hold,” Rohrer added. “Attendees of this session will return to their companies as the heroes who put VDI on the right track—certain of what they must assess and put in place to facilitate a strong ROI.”
