One of the biggest challenges with deploying virtual desktops has been storage. VDI technology typically uses either hyperconverged storage or network attached storage (NAS) to deploy desktop VMs. The performance and latency from the storage used will directly impact the end user experience. HiveIO has had the ability to turn RAM into storage for a number of years. This has provided the best possible end user experience, but at the cost of giving up memory that could be otherwise utilized to run desktops.
With the introduction of Intel Optane Persistent Memory, Hive Fabric can provide the very best end user experience leveraging the next generation of in-memory storage. This solution delivers the industry’s most performant VDI experience at costs that have not previously been attainable.
HiveIO is the only VDI solution that is able to utilize RAM as a primary storage pool for deployment of non-persistent VDI, delivering the very best end user experience for VDI. Combining Hive Fabric with Intel's Optane technology, our joint customers are experiencing the best performance at the lowest cost, and the test results below prove it.
Intel Optane Persistent Memory is an innovative memory technology that delivers a unique combination of affordable large capacity and support for data persistence. Based on a revolutionary non-volatile memory technology from Intel – and offered in a DIMM Form Factor – the technology combines the best of memory and storage traits into one transformative product.
