    • Optimizing VDI TCO and Performancewith UCS Storage AcceleratorAshok RajagopalanProduct Manager, Desktop Virtualization © 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Cisco Public
    • VDI: Impact of Infrastructure Average Cost per Virtual Desktop ($) $50 $160 Storage $125 Server Networking $125 Endpoint $150 Broker $40 Licensing Server, Storage and Networking on average comprise 50% of solution TCO per desktop Source: 2011 Morgan Stanley Desktop Survey © 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates.

    • VDI Software Broker Desktop Entitlement• Non-Persistent or Pooled ‒ Generic virtual desktop assigned to users on a per session first come first server basis and then returned to the pool (possibly with profile removed) or destroyed• Personalized ‒ Thin Provisioned Desktops with Persistence/Personalization• Persistent or Assigned ‒ Permanently assigned to a user statically or by first to connectUsers and Groups Desktops Pool of Virtual Machines Entitle Group to Assign Desktop Pool Personalized Pooled Desktop Entitle User to Desktop Assign Individual © 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates.

    • VDI Shared Storage Challenges Benefits of Server Flash for VDI • Cost of IOPS • Lower Cost of IOPS • SAN and Storage • Improved Performance: IOPS & Latency Manageability • Server based manageability • Lumpiness for Scale (stair-step • Smaller bricks for scale cost incr.) • Predictable performance at scale • Predictability • Power consumption and floor space © 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates.

    • Economics of IOPS• For 2000 desktop solution, UCS Fusion IO Flash Storage Costs for 2000 virtual desktops solution can reduce storage costs by 50% $350,000 compared to standard enterprise shared storage $300,000 $294,064• A single UCS Fusion IO 785GB card can provide ½ the cost $250,000 up to 500,000 writes (512KB) roughly 10x more write IOPS compared to typical shared storage for $200,000 2000 desktops $150,000• A single UCS Fusion IO 785GB card can provide $147,000 up to 100,000 reads (512KB) roughly 3x more $100,000 write IOPS compared to typical shared storage for $50,000 2000 desktops* Includes Industry Standard Enterprise Storage to support up to 2000 desktops with 1 year $0support ($286,000), 4 x Ports of Nexus 5000, 4 x Storage Port licenses for UCS Fabric SAN with Enterprise UCS Storage Accelerators: Storage* UCS Fusion IO 785GB**Interconnect, all at ASP** Includes UCS Fusion IO 785GB cards at ASP © 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates.

    • Traditional Architecture vs. Server Tier-0 • Read/Writes serviced by the storage array • For IOP intensive workloads, backlogs/serialization occur at access fabric, storage controller, & storage media • Best Read/Write performance would be Read from/Write commit on storage controller write cache • Queue depths on the controller serialize IOPS Write latency = ~ 600μs - 15 ms Read latency = ~ 600μs - 10 ms Server Storage Virtual Desktops Storage Media Platform + OS/Hypervisor Network Controller © 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates.
