"With Hive-IO's VDI 3.0, these barriers are eliminated and organizations of all sizes now have the flexibility to implement VDI and realize the value that has been lacking across today's solutions."

Hive-IO's VDI 3.0 is a complete software solution that reduces storage needs removes vendor sprawl and provides unparalleled security. Hive-IO can be delivered on-premise premise or from a managed services provider. Management of the platform can be done in house or can be sourced externally to Hive-IO certified partners.

  • VDI 2.0 - 2007 - Included legacy hypervisor layered solutions with hypervisor storage acceleration. Remote video only available in separate layers and is costly, and difficult to manage and integrate.  Additionally, to achieve PC-like performance requires special engineering resources, significant management server resources.
  • VDI 3.0 - 2016/2017 - a software-centric architecture that tightly integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources and other technologies from scratch in a commodity hardware box supported by a single vendor in Hive-IO.
