Hyperconverged solution delivers enterprise-class features and performance.
Desktop Virtualization with VMware Horizon View and Cisco Unified Data Center delivers scalable solutions that simplify management, optimize user experiences, and offer superior price-to-performance ratios for customers of all sizes.
These VDI solutions are fully integrated with VMware vCenter. They offer:
Desktop IT managers can now benefit from the combined strengths of the Cisco Unified Communications System (Cisco UCS) and VMware Horizon (with View). You can deploy and easily scale virtual desktops, free of the guesswork traditionally associated with sizing, installing, and expanding virtual infrastructure.
We have developed Cisco Validated Designs for many VMware Horizon configurations, investing an average of 2000 hours on each. These design guides will help you in deploying your desktop virtualization solution. You’ll learn, for example, how to engineer the back-end storage and the server infrastructure and how to provision and manage the environment overall.
Customers of all sizes who want to implement desktop virtualization can confidently deploy a "Day 1" infrastructure that provides an optimized balance of memory, I/O capacity, and CPU processing power. The result is a price-to performance ratio that delivers significantly lower incremental costs as virtual desktop seats are added.
Built with VMware Horizon (with View) and Cisco UCS, which offers a stateless provisioning and operations model, the virtual desktop solution is fully integrated with VMware vCenter. It takes full advantage of Cisco UCS Manager and View Manager with linked clones to help organizations deploy new virtual desktops to users in minutes.
