  • Hello and thank you for your interest learning more about how pano logic is radically changing how businesses manage their desktop computing.
  • The Secret sauce. Stretching the I/O bus. The applications and peripherals are basically faked as being local to virtual server you have installed our solution on. Hence, no endpoint drivers to install, or firmware updates to deploy at the end point. If your applications and peripherals are Windows native, they just work 99% of the time.
  • We built the solution to support VMware with the long term objective of being agnostic to the Hypervisor in the data center. We recently introduced support for Citrix XenDesktop 4 &amp; 5, as well as Microsoft’s HypervV. We have saved 100’s of organizations thousands of dollars in License fees by deploying the our own broker that is inclusive of the solution. However, we can also hand off the broker functionality to products like VMware View. The goal is to allow the customer freedom of choice on the back end, we would like to be the end point regardless of your back end virtual infrastructure.

    2. 2. Server Virtualization: SuccessVDI: Not So Much…Why?<br />
    3. 3. So why has server virtualizationbeen so successful? <br />
    4. 4. Server virtualization is a clear win!<br />
    5. 5. Server virtualization is easy!<br />CAPEX savings is EASY to show<br />Savings are HUGE!<br />Already in the datacenter – it’s a form factor change!<br />Standardization is a GOOD THING!<br />OPEX is simply a nice byproduct<br />Let’s face it – a P2V is a simple migration process<br />
    6. 6. So why is VDI ‘on hold’ in so many organizations?<br />
    7. 7. VDI is not so easy!<br />Host Servers<br />Storage<br />Brokers<br />Image Management<br />Protocols<br />Disk IO issues<br />Personalization<br />Loss of Control<br />
    8. 8. VDI ROI isn’t as clear <br />CAPEX is tough to show<br />OPEX is pretty much the only savings available<br />Desktops have to be “moved”<br />Users don’t like “standardization”<br />Let’s face it, there isn’t an “easy” migration process to virtual desktops<br />A number of “secondary” products are needed<br />
    9. 9. So what are the key issues inVDI projects?<br />
    10. 10. It’s really not about the brokers anymore<br />View™<br />XenDesktop®<br />Fast protocol<br />PCoIP<br />Non-persistent desktop provisioning & storage reduction<br />Composer/Linked Clones<br />Basic profile mgmt.<br />RTO asset acquisition<br />Fast protocol<br />ICA/HDX<br />Non-persistent desktop provisioning & storage reduction<br />Provisioning Server<br />Basic profile mgmt.<br />Sepago asset acquisition<br />
    11. 11. It’s about the tradeoffs (pick 2, or maybe 1)<br />VDI SuccessTriangle<br />
    12. 12. Key issues in more detail<br />Single image management comes with a price<br />Personalization means loss of single image management<br />Personalized desktops increase storage costs(footprint)<br />VDI itself has higher IO requirements than servers!<br />All of this on top of user acceptance issues<br />No good offline tools today<br />Brokers don’t always scale to the thousands very well<br />
    13. 13. Do you have a desktopvirtualization strategy?<br />
    14. 14. Start with your current desktop strategy<br />
    15. 15. The Personalization Challenge<br />What you see:<br />What users see:<br />
    16. 16. The Storage Challenge<br />Capacity footprint can be reduced via numerous technologies<br />IO… not so much<br />Desktop IOPS rules of thumb?<br />Low: 3-4 Med: 6-12 Heavy:16-20<br />What is all this RAID penalty stuff?<br />Must design to handle the IO load<br />
    17. 17. The Management Challenge<br />Generally there are big trade-offs<br />Aim for single image management and you lose “persistent” desktops that sustain user persona<br />Use persistent desktops and you lose single image management (and move right back to traditional,higher OpEx desktop management)<br />Single image management reduces storage footprint(linked clones, PVS) but at the cost of personalization <br />Do existing management tools fit the VDI world or your use case? <br />
    18. 18. So what should I be on thelook out for?<br />
    19. 19. Common mistakes in VDI<br />Designing the hardware first<br />Too many variables to choose hardware out of the gate<br />Just duplicating server virtualization hardware won’t work<br />Believing everything the vendors say<br />“The vendor said I could easily virtualize all of my apps.”<br />“The vendor said I could get 120 desktops per host.”<br />Not configuring the disk subsystem properly<br />Forgetting about “personalization” of the desktop<br />
    20. 20. Key “check boxes” for your design<br />Define what you are delivering and for whom<br />Ensure your design covers the following:<br />Base OS delivery and updating<br />Application delivery and updating (even the complex apps)<br />Personalization (including user-installed apps)<br />Broker configuration and requirements<br />Non-persistent vs. persistent desktop use cases<br />Storage configuration (capacity footprint AND IO load)<br />WAN, LAN, and offline use cases<br />
    21. 21. Hardware recommendations<br />Smaller servers with more cores<br />Good storage controllers<br />More memory<br />NEW: solid state drive (SSD)<br />Hybrid arrays combineSSD and SAS in single array with intelligent data placement to solve IOPS and capacity problems<br />NEW:zero clients<br />Less energy & fewer breakable parts vs. thin clients<br />Build redundancy through quantity<br />
    22. 22. Software recommendations<br />NEW: desktop layering solutions<br />Eliminate “pick 1 or 2” tradeoffs<br />Combine single image patching, easy app delivery, full user personalization, and storage savings in one solution<br />
