NetApp Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure


Evolve Your Virtual Desktop
Infrastructure Workloads

With HighVail & NetApp, it’s simple to put
data at the heart of your business.

Organizations like yours have seen firsthand the benefits of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). These benefits include rapid deployment to meet more demanding SLAs and to improve data protection. With the centralized computing of VDI, your users have global access from anywhere, at any time, on any device.
Resource-intensive applications are becoming more relevant for verticals such as healthcare, oil and gas exploration, film and media, and automotive, which is driving the rapid adoption of VDI technology. Data protection and storage management requirements remain paramount, but it’s clear that the next generation of VDI also needs to include the element of graphics in addition to compute, network, and storage. Beyond simply adding a graphics component, the next generation of VDI requires graphics capabilities that are dynamic. Some organizations have high graphics usage, and others don’t. Therefore, the demand is great for a flexible storage solution that can meet the needs of various enterprise users and various VDI applications.


NetApp HCI is a hybrid cloud infrastructure that has a scalable architecture to meet the growing VDI demands in three ways:

  • The use of NVIDIA GPUs to meet the demands of your high-performance applications and the growing need for graphics intensive workloads
  • NetApp Element® software gives you the quality of service that you need to tailor resources to your applications so that you can deliver the expected user experience
  • With NetApp HCI, you can start with what you need today to help you manage costs and your data centre footprint. NetApp HCI has disaggregated CPU from storage, so your enterprise can grow in whichever way you want
