I have lost track of how many articles about VDI and Storage I have written. It seems that no matter how many times I write about it people are still confused about what type of storage technology to choose from when architecting VDI solutions. Yet this week I had to explain the difference between XtremeIO, Atlantis and FusionIO.
So, I decided to change the strategy and created what I like to call the “VDI Storage Decision Tree”. The concept is simple – follow the workflow tree and go talk to the recommended vendor or vendors. In some cases, there will be a single vendor to talk to, but other cases multiple vendors provide solution to the problem.
If you are a vendor and feel you are in the wrong bucket, or you feel that you should be in more buckets, or if you are not in any bucket, post a comment and we will fix it. Just tell me about your technology and why you should be in a given bucket.
I have moved this post to a dedicated page. Please find most up-to-date workflow at http://myvirtualcloud.net/?page_id=5362
