Horizon 6 on Pure Storage: More affordable, scalable and simpler than disk
Guest blog by Vaughn Stewart, Chief Evangelist, Pure Storage
It’s amazing to reflect on how quickly our mobile work experience has evolved in such a short period. Over the past half dozen years, the world has advanced from remote calendars and email to the need for a rich, mobile end-user experience comprised of secure access to applications, files, and online services – all available anywhere, anytime and on any device.
However, it can be challenging to provide a consistent user experience across devices and locations. Multiple points of access and control for end-user applications (including Windows and non-Windows based assets) contribute to user experience issues and management complexity. Legacy disk-based storage contributes to slow response times and also leads to user dissatisfaction.
VMware and Pure Storage address these performance and management challenges. VMware Horizon 6 delivers consistently great experiences across devices, locations, media and connections through a unified workspace and provides a central point of control for application delivery. Pure Storage FlashArray is perfect for Horizon 6 and enables customers to host and manage desktops, provide remote file services and stream application delivery with simplicity and scalability, directly within their software-defined data center.
Pure Storage is unique in the industry, as we have removed the economic barrier to all-flash storage, ensuring an instantaneous and responsive end-user experience with price points at below $100 per Horizon user. In fact, the price per user decreases as the size of the deployment increases! Consistent sub-millisecond storage latency is key to meeting the expectations of today’s mobile user and is vital for Horizon 6 deployments. All-flash Pure Storage delivers this performance without the configuration or complexity of disk-based storage.
VMware Horizon on Pure Storage runs flawlessly and enables organizations to support new deployments for the most demanding users requiring highly responsive 3D graphics, rich media and unified communications.
