Citrix Webinar: How to Architect XenDesktop With No Storage or SSDs using Atlantis Computing

For desktop virtualization to be successful, virtual desktops must deliver an equivalent user experience to a physical PC at a comparable cost per desktop. Traditionally, storage accounts for 40–60% of the total cost of a virtual desktop, which results in a cost per desktop that is 2–4 times more than a physical PC. In addition, deploying desktop virtualization with traditional storage or SSDs makes storage sizing, scaling, and management complex, and introduces significant risks to your projects.

Citrix has partnered with GlassHouse Technologies and Atlantis Computing to develop an optimized reference architecture that delivers on the business objectives of reducing cost and providing a user experience that is superior to a physical PC.

Join the Citrix team to learn how XenDesktop, Microsoft Hyper-V and Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI reference architecture enables customers to:

•  Eliminate storage and SSDs for virtual desktop images
•  Lower the cost per desktop to $195 including the server hardware and Atlantis ILIO license
•  Achieve a density of 140 virtual machines per server
•  Deliver a user experience with Windows 7 boot time of 16 seconds - under 1 second application launch times
•  Easily handle a boot storm of 140 desktop boot storm in 6 minutes (2.5 seconds/desktop)

Speakers: Craig Ellrod (Senior Technical Marketing Manager, Citrix Systems) and Jim Moyle (CTP and Solutions Architect, Atlantis Computing)

Date and Time: November 15th 2012, 1:00pm to 2:00pm EST
