X-Pod for VDI Reference Architecture Enabled by Cisco UCS, Citrix XenDesktop, and ISE 740 Hybrid Storage Array

<--Return to Document Library
This white paper provides a primer for the X-Pod for VDI converged infrastructure solution, powered by X-IO storage. X-Pod is a reference architecture designed to deliver a repeatable, high-performance virtual desktop infrastructure. It utilizes an industry-leading Citrix XenDesktop 7.5 environment, hosted on Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) Blade Servers, with storage housed on a single, high-performance, X-IO ISE 740 Hybrid Storage Array.
The environment described herein has been extensively tested by X-IO. This document is intended to provide insight into the components, the architecture, and the performance required to meet the demands of a 350 and 500 seat virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployment.
