IBM has announced new Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and hybrid cloud

capabilities for the VersaStack converged infrastructure solution.


VDI can reduce data center costs, streamline troubleshooting, and increase data security for enterprise clients managing hybrid cloud workloads.

To address large-scale, high performance VDI workloads and data reduction requirements VersaStack leverage the storage capabilities from IBM FlashSystem A9000 all flash arrays and IBM Spectrum Accelerate software, which provide data migration between on-premises and cloud deployments. VersaStack also integrates Cisco UCS, and Cisco networking components to provide benefits to VDI end users by increasing performance, lowering management overhead, and potentially reducing costs through overall storage capacity savings depending on the workload.

“The new VersaStack solution demonstrates that when industry leaders come together to develop leading edge solutions, our clients and Business Partners benefit.”
“In March I joined Cisco at CiscoLive ANZ 2017 to co-announce a broad set of new VersaStack solutions; two months later we are expanding our work together with support for VDI,” said Ed Walsh, General Manager, IBM Storage and Software Defined Infrastructure.
The VersaStack solution will be demonstrated in booth 2015 during CiscoLive, June 25-29, Las Vegas, NV.
