21 Jun 2017 VDI Planning: The Network Perspective [64464]
NetworkComputing, June 21st 2017

"Make sure your network can support virtual desktops before deployment.

Virtual desktops can be a great way to easily deploy common desktop environments in a centrally managed way. But before you pull the trigger on a VDI rollout, you must look at all aspects of the infrastructure to determine if the network can support it. So often I hear conversations about VDI that focus on server hardware, licensing, and application integration. Yet very little time is spent investigating whether the network can support and scale the way VDI is designed to function.

In this blog, I'll look at VDI deployments from a network perspective and discuss out four key areas that could affect the usability of virtual desktops on day one or further down the road..."

20 Jun 2017 Is The Enterprise Finally Ready For VDI? [64486]
IT Business Edge, June 20th 2017

"Like the Phoenix, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) continues to rise from the ashes in the hopes that it will one day take its place as a mainstream enterprise solution.

But this time, it seems that rather than trying to fit VDI into legacy data infrastructure, the technology is seen as a novel way for the enterprise to embrace emerging data needs built around hybrid architectures, the mobile workforce and the cloud..."

Nutanix, May 23rd 2017

Nutanix, a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced that TBConsulting, a leading provider of managed IT services, has deployed the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform to power and scale its virtual desktop environment from 600 to over 4,000 virtual desktops.

In order to meet increasing demand from its healthcare clients, TBConsulting needed a higher-performing platform that would provide the ability to scale quickly and improve the speed of application deployment. Previously, the company used a complex infrastructure platform with a homegrown solution comprised of Cisco components, VMware vSphere and VMware Horizon View for its VDI environment consisting of 600 virtual desktops. After vetting several best-in-class vendors, TBConsulting determined Nutanix was the optimal solution for its fast-growth VDI offering based on VMware Horizon View.

10 Feb 2017 Cornerstone Home Lending Upgrades with Citrix and Nutanix [60491]
An Interview with Marc Grant, Director of Infrastructure at Cornerstone Home Lending, Inc.

Cornerstone Home Lending became a Nutanix customer just a few months ago. We recently checked in with Marc Grant to see how his Nutanix deployment was going. Here are some of the highlights of our conversation.

What IT challenges were you facing before Nutanix?

We have a large Citrix VDI environment with over 1,500 desktops. That deployment was mixed with our production environment on our existing blade chassis and SAN storage infrastructure. When we started seeing degradation in performance on the VDI side, we realized it was time to refresh our CPU and memory environment. We also wanted to separate our production servers and storage from the VDI environment in order to commoditize the VDI pieces. So we decided to run a bake-off between Nutanix hyperconverged systems and HP to determine the right solution for us.
