You understand the business drivers, the VDI project is ready to be kicked off, but where is this environment going to live? Your company’s private cloud performs great and there is excess capacity. It may seem like the clear choice, but internal clouds are built for 80 percent of applications, and VDI is not one of them.
VDI has very specific requirements, and you can’t risk the responsiveness of your production IT environment by saturating all the hardware resources when VDI work volume fluctuates. Even if you upgrade your storage array’s performance, you’ll find your network cannot handle the increase in data transfer. After you upgrade your network throughput, you’ll need additional storage capacity, and so on and so forth. This resource contention can have significant impact:
By architecting and deploying a VDI-specific environment, you can easily prevent these inconsistencies. Your end users will receive quick application load time and will be able to make crystal clear calls with their softphone. They will be able to quickly and easily consume high definition images, large PDFs and video. It will be as if the desktop was running locally on their end-point device.
And that’s the whole point of a VDI – to perform as though you weren’t using one. So while keeping your VDI in a private cloud may make sense at first, in the end if your users notice a difference you’re not capitalizing on the capabilities a best-in-breed VDI deployment can provide.
