Our preferred solution provider facilitated the evaluation of WHIPTAIL’s Virtual Desktop SAN appliance. Things that would typically be immediately noticeable to our VDI users, such as cloning operations occurring on the same LUN they were working on, boot storms, AV rollouts and so on disappeared immediately. We were able to watch an HD video on a VDI desktop whilst provisioning a desktop pool on the same LUN and rebooting about 50 others at the same time. Our viewing was uninterrupted, and throughout disk latency was pretty much zero. If we had tried the same on our existing array we would have started to receive calls about slow performance immediately. Its performance on IOPS (especially WRITE IOPS) was dramatic. We were impressed and placed an order.
