HANDS ON - Virtual Desktop, Blades & iSCSI SAN Storage Demo and Presentation (Colorado Springs)


Without a doubt, desktop virtualization opens up a new range of possibilities for your environment: Improved desktop utilization with high availability and disaster recovery. Performance management through dynamic workload balancing. And simplified management with all desktops harnessed as a single, uniform pool of resources.

Don’t lose what you gain with desktop virtualization to inefficient storage. Make sure you choose SAN solutions that fully support your virtualized environment. That way, you can have all the benefits of desktop virtualization and:

·     SAN storage that drives down costs by increasing storage utilization

·     Flexibility to purchase storage as you need it, making it easier to work within today’s budget constraints

·     Increased capacity and performance as you add to your storage pool, avoiding traditional SAN bottlenecks

·     Peace of mind that comes from knowing you can continue to operate continuously in the event of a local or geographic failure

·     Ease of management so that server and storage administrators alike can manage your iSCSI SAN

Zunesis cordially invites you to attend our Virtual Desktop, Blades & iSCSI SAN Storage Hands on Demo and Presentation.

Zunesis has partnered with HP & LeftHand Networks, an HP company to bring you a Presentation packed with information about many affordable priced solutions to help you virtualize, centralize and simplify your IT environment.
