Frontier Technology Heads the March on DataCore’s New Software Product line: DataCore VDS- The Virtual Desktop Server
Deploy persistent ‘stateful’ virtual desktops at a lower cost and higher performance than alternatives from Frontier Technology – at 75 percent of regular VDI costs.
True virtual desktops are ‘stateful’ (or persistent) and deliver a similar user experience ascations, browse and do downloads. A user can turn the virtual desktop off and then back on and it retains the ‘state’ of what he or she is doing, just like closing and opening a laptop.
DataCore VDS addresses unfulfilled SMB market demand for cost-effective solutions
Small and medium businesses want to adopt desktop virtualisation for the same reasons large enterprises do – to reduce desktop management costs, improve productivity and increase business agility. However, they often find enterprise-class solutions overkill for smaller environments.
Unlike VDI offerings aimed at ‘Big Companies’ on the market which are complex and require many thousands of desktops to justify the high costs involved, DataCore VDS dramatically lowers the complexity and significantly reduces the cost per VDI instance. The solution is priced and sized for small, medium size businesses and departmental users. DataCore VDS addresses this unfulfilled market demand with cost-effective and simple to use solutions specifically designed to meet the budgets and needs of 50 to 200 virtual desktop deployments. Most importantly, DataCore VDS makes it economically possible to not sacrifice performance and have a ‘true’ desktop user experience.
The Ultimate Objective: A Great User Experience
Other VDI approaches tend to be complex, costly and inefficient. Also, they are difficult to install and manage. Whilst the ultimate objective is to provide users with a virtual desktop that performs and works as well or better than a physical computer, this objective is the first to be sacrificed due to the high costs needed to achieve the ‘true’ desktop experience and responsiveness that end-users expect.
Storage has been the major barrier and cost factor; current VDI approaches have had to use expensive storage networks, enterprise storage arrays, fast disks, SSDs and shared storage to achieve needed performance. However the economics do not make sense. The cost of storage has limited VDI deployments only to large companies with big budgets. All the above arguments together dictate the need for a new approach to address the storage cost and performance challenges.
