With more than 1.1 billion mobile devices in use worldwide as projected by IDC, and the increasing need to access, manage and secure these devices and the data generated by them, HP recently announced a set of new offerings to help businesses update their infrastructure addressing requirements for their growing mobile workforce.
This includes a new virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) reference architecture that provides new scale and performance breakthroughs using HP IO Accelerators. As a proven and tested stateless architecture supporting 200 virtual desktops per host, running locally on HP IO Accelerators, this provides linear scalability from a single host to hundreds of hosts, and allows a modular approach for customers to scale out their virtual desktop infrastructure.
HP has been running a live demonstration of this client virtualization solution this week at VMworld 2012, in San Francisco. It’s available today and includes:
This highly flexible, cost-effective solution provides greater VM density with improved VDI economics for lower cost operations and higher productivity. Other key benefits include:
• Superior performance and an enhanced user experience
• Assured high availability (HA) and business continuity
• Ability to scale on-demand
• Simplified mobile desktop management
• Enhanced security and compliance
• Improved end-user access
