Virsto’s storage hypervisor benefits users by:

  • Changing the economics of storage in virtual desktop deployments - by significantly increasing storage utilization with higher VM density, reducing storage costs by 50 percent or more, and delivering compelling cost-per-desktop economics.
  • Supporting enterprise-scale VDI – by delivering the only solution that provides unlimited snapshots and thin-provisioned clones to enable projects to scale to thousands of virtual desktops, supporting heterogeneous storage to fully utilize and consolidate existing storage resources and robust, cluster-aware HA and backup.
  • Simplifying VDI management – by providing software-driven storage tiering to enable the creation of high-performance, yet cost-effective storage solutions, decreasing the provisioning time of thousands of images from hours to minutes, and supporting simple bulk operations and other flexible tools for managing VDI at scale.
