HyperConverged Infrastructure Leaders Unidesk and Gridstore to Showcase at Live! 360 TECHMENTOR 2015 Conference

Industry Leaders Deliver Breakthrough Economics to VDI Deployments

Gridstore®, the leader in hyper-converged all flash infrastructure for the Microsoft Cloud-Inspired Data Center and Unidesk®, a leader in management software for mobilizing Windows apps, today announced they will be showcasing their industry leading HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI) solution at the
TechMentor Live 360! Conference, November 16-20 at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando, Florida. Attendees who visit Gridstore and Unidesk at Booth #205 will have the opportunity to learn how together, they provide flexible, high-performance, and easy-to-manage VDI at less than $600 per user “all-in.” For the first time, VDI that does not compromise the user experience is significantly less than the cost of new physical PCs.

Gridstore HyperConverged Infrastructure delivers VDI building blocks of compute, storage, and storage networking, with sub-millisecond latency per I/O to deliver a better user experience than a local PC. The Gridstore HCI is simple to deploy and reduces management time and effort. It reduces infrastructure by 75% and price-per-VM by 65% over converged infrastructures.

Unidesk, the inventor of the groundbreaking Windows application delivery technology called layering, extends Remote Desktop Services (RDS) with enterprise-class image and application management, persistent personalization, provisioning, and collection management capabilities. The combination of RDS for secure client access to virtual desktops and sessions, RDP with RemoteFX as the high performance protocol, and Unidesk for scalable management eliminates the high cost of third party desktop virtualization solutions.

In addition to booth #205, Kelly Murphy, Gridstore Founder and CTO and Dave Kawula, Microsoft MVP will be speaking on Thursday November 19, 1:30pm -2:45pm in Java Sea 2. Their presentation, “Debunking the myths about Virtualization Performance With All-Flash Hyper-Converged Infrastructure” will feature:
• A live demo of hyperconverged infrastructure installation, configuration and provisioning
• How to set up and tune IOPS per application to manage and guarantee performance
• Best practices for deploying and managing for high performance and low TCO
