In virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), multiple desktops are hosted in virtual machines on centralized servers in the data center. Sometimes called client virtualization, VDI can improve data mobility, provide greater control, and increase efficiency.
Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is fast, simple, and efficient, which makes it a good fit for VDI.
- HCI consolidates multiple functions into a single server building block, making it easy to deploy and operate.
- Users can start with a few nodes. As the business grows, more hyperconverged building blocks can be added to scale out the system.
- HPE SimpliVity includes built-in data protection, and VM‑centric management to simplify day‑to‑day operations.
