Virtual Desktops

Slow VDI performance keeping you up at night? Deliver an improved end-user experience effortlessly with sub-millisecond latency and keep your VDI end-users happy. Open Convergence has got your back.

Desktop Acceleration

Get ‘snappy’ desktops up front and as you grow. With Datrium, each host delivers plenty of IOPs with sub-ms latency to ensure an amazing VDI end-user experience. VM-Centric administration and analytics will help you isolate and quickly resolve application issues in a sea of virtual desktops and mixed workloads.


Consolidate hundreds or thousands of desktops quickly and simply. By using your own servers and commodity flash, combined with always-on global deduplication and compression, your desktop infrastructure can cost you less without constant configuration tuning.

Protection and Archiving

Preserve critical application data with granular, policy-driven snapshot and replication. With dynamic policy binding, new desktops are automatically added to protection groups for hassle-free inheritance of policies.

What is Virtual Desktop Infrastructure with Open Convergence


VDI consolidation with Open Convergence is simply beautiful. A Datrium solution for VDI allows you to scale up to 32 hosts per DVX Rackscale system while delivering up to 4x faster desktop provisioning. VDI desktop provisioning is simple and fast because you can offload the process to Datrium and leverage our zero-clone copy feature.

Start small and easily scale up using your existing hosts with commodity SSDs with Datrium DVX. Your VDI cost could be as little as $2 per desktop per month. VDI deployments with Open Convergence can experience data reduction rates of 6:1 because global deduplication and compression ensures you get the most of your existing resources. No more hardware vendor lock-ins.

Open Convergence has got your back with snap, clone and elastic replication to ensure your virtual desktops are protected locally and off-site for blazing fast recovery within minutes. Rest easy that your enterprise is also protected from network sniffers with AES-XTS-256 end-to-end software encryption without any performance hit to your end-users’ experience.
