Make VDI More Smooth and Economic, Easy to Manage and Scale with Stable and Powerful SmartX HCI

HCI Boosts VDI Experience

In traditional architecture, storage is too centralized and unable to increase concurrency. Desktops only respond slower as the number grows. HCI can significantly improve the VDI experience.

Supported Desktop Virtualization Softwares

Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktop (Originally XenDesktop and XenApp)

In this circumstance, you can deploy SmartX HCI with 2 choices of hypervisor: Citrix XenServer and VMware vSphere

VMware Horizon View

In this circumstance, you can deploy SmartX HCI with one choice of hypervisor: VMware vSphere

Features

Intelligent Cache Acceleration

Automatic tiering of hot and cold data. Cold data automatically sinks to HDD, and hot data remains in the cache layer, improving read/write performance, eliminating “boot storms”.

Data Localization Access

Compute and storage come closer in HCI. Data localization allows desktops to read the local data of servers nearby, shortening I/O path, reducing storage access latency, and effectively improving user experience.

Multi-Controller Architecture

Enhances concurrent access and disperses IO pressure. Each SmartX HCI server is deployed with a virtual storage controller, with desktop storage access distributed to multiple controllers; the virtual storage controller can expand freely, making the large-scale expansion of desktops very easy.
