Lowest Cost
Per Desktop

Lowest cost per desktop - Industry leading storage density delivers 1000+ desktops per single rack unit at less than $50 per desktop without impact on performance.

  • SolidFire’s all flash architecture with built in data efficiency ensures service providers can deliver competitive services and maintain profitability.
  • VDI Storage costs of $50 per desktop ($1.38/mo over 36 Month contract)
  • Less than $1 per desktop IO
  • Maximize data center footprint with by provisioning over 42,000 desktops per 42U rack
Eliminate storage sprawl 930832ac18b4634a056f8b01a036770e061607d13cf5f93e48858014d08f7ada

Storage Sprawl

Eliminate storage sprawl - service providers can guarantee performance to each virtual desktop and each application, eliminating the need for islands dedicated storage

  • Linear scale-out architecture reduces planning complexity
  • Extremely dense deployment ratios reduce data center footprint lowering monthly facility costs
  • The ability to guarantee QoS to each application eliminates need for dedicated storage
  • Efficiently leverage both linked clones and persistent full clones
