Presented by: Michael Thomason
You probably never really thought of IOPS when your users were running on a physical desktop, but once applications are delivered centrally, IOPS is something you need to be familiar with. In computing terms, IOPS equals money, so reducing helps the bottom line. In this session, Michael Thomason discusses ways to reduce processing and IOPS inside of a VDI environment. Attendees will learn how Windows internally processes storage IOPS, as well as how to optimize IOPS for SAN environments and configure images to reduce the load on the backend. Michael also talks about various storage technologies on the market and how each can GREATLY change the user session experience. Not only will attendees walk away with best practices and techniques for improving CPU and memory usage in the data center, they’ll also have a better understanding of this topic as a whole. The session will conclude by highlighting the importance of antivirus engines and how they need to be configured to properly work and scale in a VDI environment.
