SnapVDI Overview

SnapVDI is a complete, all-in-one hardware and software VDI solution designed to deliver the ultimate user experience and management. Class-leading performance and end-to-end security measures come standard with SnapVDI, with the ability to boot hundreds of virtual desktops in mere seconds. SnapVDI requires a minimal infrastructure to deploy, as all of the virtual machines can easily operate in a 1 Gb network. In most cases, SnapVDI can be seamlessly deployed in the existing IT infrastructure – avoiding the hassle and expense of adding complex storage and backend infrastructure to support a VDI deployment. Moreover, the entire VDI environment can be up and running in just a few hours. Another key benefit is a significant reduction in energy consumption and power costs, as SnapVDI thin clients consume only a fraction of the power used by traditional desktops. Finally, the SnapVDI Manager (SVM) management software is included with the SnapVDI solution, allowing administrators to install, upgrade, provision and secure hundreds of users from a single management interface – whether local or remote.

SnapVDI Brick B-300

The SnapVDI solution includes a ‘brick’ consisting of two servers configured in High Availability and one redundant dual-controller storage appliance, thin/zero client devices, user licenses, and the SnapVDI Manager (SVM) software. While the SnapVDI Thin/Zero clients offer enhanced functionality when deployed with the SnapVDI solution, customers can utilize other endpoint devices or repurposed desktops if they prefer. SnapVDI Thin/Zero Clients are also offered separately from the SnapVDI solution as a standalone product for customers with an existing VDI environment.

So how does SnapVDI work?

SnapVDI is a complete and secure VDI computing solution that scales from 25 users up to thousands. Unlike most VDI component-based products, SnapVDI is shipped as a “Ready-to-Deploy” solution that makes implementing VDI quick and simple. SnapVDI was architected to leverage the latest virtual desktop technologies while keeping in mind the utmost security measures to mitigate cyber threats and ensure complete data protection.

Most multi-vendor virtual desktop implementations fail due to the complexity and high cost associated with the project. Hundreds of users have shared their desire for VDI, but expressed concerns over the roadblocks they had experienced during past VDI evaluations. SnapVDI resolves these common concerns by providing a complete VDI solution from a single vendor which guarantees greater user experience, higher data security, and a streamlined technical support process.

A True Desktop-like Experience.

SnapVDI Spark, the brain of the SnapVDI architecture, provides intelligent caching and storage with high definition graphical quality. SnapVDI Spark also enables a seamless user experience by providing on-the-fly backup and recovery as a standard feature. The SnapVDI Spark layer empowers Remote Desktop Services, giving users an experience identical to that of a local desktop. Finally, SnapVDI Spark is designed for scalability and performance with minimal downtime so that all components of the VDI system boot within seconds.

Centralized Management

SnapVDI Manager (SVM) is a consolidated management software capable of managing the entire VDI environment. With SVM, administrators can monitor, manage and protect all VDI users from within the SnapVDI Manager interface – including VM pool creation, deletion, modification, provisioning and management of users, storage, user clients and inventory – all from a single, central interface. Using SnapVDI Manager, administrators can also build a private cloud environment, thereby increasing the utility and cost-effectiveness of the complete SnapVDI solution.
