The lack of a simple and efficient IT platform designed for easy consumption by application workloads is adding to the cost of doing business. Cisco HyperFlex Systems™ addresses this need while also including the desirable features of flexibility and consistent management. The Cisco HyperFlex™ platform reduces the time needed to deploy the required computing, storage, and network infrastructure for desktop virtualization to two hours or less, an order of magnitude faster than with some converged systems, which typically require two weeks. VMware Horizon with View can be used as the broker for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) for pooled, nonpersistent Microsoft Windows virtual desktops and, with Horizon 6 with View, for hosted applications and desktops through integration with Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) on Microsoft Windows Server. This solution allows nearly immediate use of new capacity as it is brought online and enables seamless desktop image maintenance.
