VMware Horizon View on Branch Converged Infrastructure
VDI deployments tend to start as small pilot projects and then grow from there. At some point, enterprises start looking at deploying VDI in remote office locations. That introduces a challenging trade-off: let users suffer poor performance from the latency and unpredictability of accessing their desktop over the WAN, or run a bunch of infrastructure in each branch locations.
At VMworld 2014, I caught up with Chris Wong of Riverbed to find out how Riverbed SteelFusion branch converged infrastructure eliminates this painful trade-off with VMware Horizon View. Watch this video to hear how users can get the performance they need in a remote branch location, but IT can minimize the infrastructure and cost, while exercising centralized control:
