Eric Herzog, VP, Product Marketing and Management, Unified Storage Division, EMC, said: "Customers can now quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively implement and scale their virtual desktop environment while taking advantage of trademark EMC reliability, availability, multi-protocol support, disaster recovery features, replication and snapshot technology, and hardened security."

The solution combines EMC VNX unified storage systems with EMC FAST Cache technology, which includes EMC FAST VP technology and EMC FAST Cache.

This solution enables 1000 virtual desktops to power on, becomes steady and register with XenDesktop controllers within eight minutes, claims the company.

At peak load and with high IOPS being generated by the Boot Storm, the EMC VNX system requires only 20 SAS drives and two flash drives in comparison to the 90 – 100 (nearly five times more) SAS drives required by an equivalent competitive configuration without flash drives to match this performance, adds the company.

"Customers are grappling with the costs and complexities associated with infrastructure implementation in a virtual desktop environment," said John Fanelli, VP, Product Marketing, Enterprise Desktops and Applications at Citrix.  "To meet customer needs, Citrix and EMC have created tight integration between VNX unified storage systems and XenDesktop which enables a simple and cost-effective storage solution that meets high performance requirements of the most demanding service level agreements for XenDesktop customers."
