Predictive Flash Platform Prevents Barriers to Data Velocity for Enterprises With Large Citrix Desktop Virtualization Workloads

 SAN JOSE, CA – May 18, 2016 — / — Nimble Storage (NYSE: NMBL), the leader in predictive flash storage, today announced it will exhibit at the Citrix Synergy conference being held May 24-26 in Las Vegas, Nev. Nimble Storage (booth #410S) will showcase its Predictive Flash platform, which is leveraged by enterprises and cloud service providers to obtain absolute performance and efficient capacity for large seat Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp environments, resulting in an exceptional end-user experience and cost-effective application deployments.

Nimble Storage’s products provide IT organizations leveraging Citrix desktop virtualization workloads with a consistently high-performance experience, and ability to scale from small to large deployments seamlessly and non-disruptively as their business grows. In an effort to keep pace with changing business requirements, many IT organizations have evaluated converged solutions – integrated infrastructure components that have been pre-validated for specific applications or workloads. SmartStack for VDI, an integrated infrastructure solution, comprising the Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®) integrated infrastructure and the Nimble Predictive Flash platform, allows IT organizations to address the biggest challenge for VDI deployments – designing the right infrastructure by effectively integrating storage, compute and virtualization.

SmartStack solutions, jointly supported by Cisco and Nimble, are designed to speed application deployments, scale infrastructure components independently, and simplify overall management. SmartStack Cisco Validated Design (CVD) for Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp is designed to accommodate up to 3,000 VDI users, using the latest hardware and software stack from Cisco and Nimble. The underlying storage system, the Nimble CS700 Adaptive Flash array, is designed to scale non-disruptively allowing IT organizations to add users and Cisco UCS compute resources without requiring additional storage.

University Provides Exceptional VDI Experience to Students, Faculty and Staff
West Chester University of Pennsylvania implemented their Citrix environment to run application and desktop virtual offerings to students, faculty and staff. West Chester University is the largest of the 14 public institutions in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education and the fourth-largest university in the Philadelphia area. The University offers more than 100 graduate and undergraduate programs in the arts and sciences, business and public affairs, the social sciences, visual and performing arts, health sciences and teacher education. West Chester University implemented its Citrix virtualization environment to efficiently provide applications to students, faculty and staff. The University has over 16,000 students and 1,800 faculty and staff, all of whom have access to applications through RamCloud, which is supported in the Citrix environment. Nimble Storage has allowed the University’s IT team to support its Citrix VDI environment for up to 3,000 active users over the course of each semester.

“Our Citrix desktop and application virtualization environment runs on Nimble Storage, and since implementing the Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash array, we have seen excellent performance across the entire VDI environment,” said Theresa Friedman, Academic Computing Department, West Chester University of Pennsylvania. “The majority of our VDI users are students using math and statistical software or graphic intensive programs, as well as the faculty who design and teach the courses. Nimble has allowed us to improve our end-user experience by exceeding our expectations on performance, login times, and application response times.”
