High Performance Flash Memory Storage for Scalable VDI

Most traditional storage systems begin to breakdown in performance and latency as VDI deployments approach a thousand VMs. Violin’s flash memory Arrays deliver sustained performance and ultra-low latency whether you have a thousand VMs or ten thousand VMs. We make large scale VDI deployments economical and high performance.

The Violin Advantage: Performance, Scalability, Efficiency

Unlike SSD-based arrays or traditional PCIe cards, Violin solutions avoid the “write cliff” phenomenon and deliver spike-free latency even under peak loads with heavily mixed workloads, enabling you to reduce the cost of VDI storage by as much as 50 percent and accelerate the ROI of your VDI initiative.



Proven Performance and Enterprise-Class Interoperability

Violin works closely with VMware and Citrix to optimize our solutions for VMware View and XenDesktop environments and we offer joint solutions with Dell, Atlantis and other technology alliance partners. These partnerships help to ensure optimal performance for VDI environments as demonstrated by the numerous VDI benchmark records we have set with several leading technology providers.

Simplify Management with Seamless vSphere Integration

Violin VSMP for VMWare vSphere is a plug-in for VMware vCenter that enables end-to-end storage management of Violin arrays in vSphere environments with provisioning, centralized configuration and monitoring and multi-box management.

Violin is VMware Ready

Violin solutions have undergone rigorous certification testing through the
VMware Ready TM program and are available through the VMware Solution Exchange.
This certification ensures that Violin solutions are fully supported by Violin and VMware.
