VDI Challenges
• Performance
– Multiple user classes & needs
– Boot storm contention
• Hardware
– Disruptive installation?
– Data center space?
• Scalability
?
– Easy to grow or change?
• Cost
– Can be more expensive than buying fat client PCs

40Gb Link Eliminates Bottlenecks
Xsigo delivers more
bandwidth to each server:

Low Latency = Fast Response
Xsigo has 1/3 the
latency to the app
server.

Network Isolation
• Xsigo delivers isolated
networks to any server
• Does not rely on VLANs
• Freedom to:
– Host any desktop on any
server
– Load balance
– Mitigate failures
– Scale resources easily
Isolated
networks
wherever
required
