Western Networks Partners With Citrix Systems, Inc.

Western Networks has begun rolling out Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions for both new installations and hardware refreshes.

Using a best-in-breed combination of Citrix XenDesktop for desktop provisioning, VMWare vSphere for virtual infrastructure, Reid Data Systems for storage, and Wyse for clients, Western Networks is able to provide a robust virtual desktop design that delivers performance second to none.

Citrix XenDesktop allows customers to use virtual any hardware device as their portal into their virtual desktop, delivering unparalleled flexibility. Old desktop hardware, existing desktop PCs, dedicated zero clients, iPads and iPhones, Android tablets and phones, laptops, Linux boxes - you name it, you can use it to deliver a powerful desktop experience to just about any device. Even laptops that are offline can use a virtual desktop via Citrix's FlexCast technology.

Reid Data Systems' storage solutions deliver the performance necessary to make VDI a reality. VDI is extremely demanding on storage performance - legacy storage simply can't deliver the raw disk speed necessary for acceptable performance. Reid Data Systems' SAN solutions, based on NexentaStor technology, can deliver several orders of magnitude better performance than legacy storage solutions, making large VDI deployments possible.
