HVE-VDI Appliance

HVE-VDI is well suited in just about any environment were desktops and servers need to be managed. Schools, Government institutions, Banks, Churches etc. If you are needing to run virtual desktops and just not sure on how to do so. HVE inc is for sure the company that you need.

Infinio

Infinio is best suited for infrastructure that has high-latency read IO performance challenges. It does nothing to help write IO, so keep in mind the type of workload for which you need to reduce latency.If you have traditional SAS or SATA storage, Infinio has a tremendous impact on the response time of many applications. You can build your cluster's caching pool from either available RAM or an internal drive inside each host. This flexibility helps Infinio to be suitable across many types of environments.

Cons

HVE-VDI Appliance

  • Maybe price. They do a really good job in their pricing... But sometimes it is still little about the price range for some small schools.
  • Choosing vendors. In my area, they have partnered with a small tech company that does not have a great track record. To be able to choose who I can purchase from would be great. But, they have worked with me to help with this.
  • Maybe easier to get onsite support. Most of the time a remote connection is how support works. To get on site is a little tough. But again, HVE has always come through. I'm just having to be very picky.

Infinio

  • The interface needs a way to allow for RBAC so everyone is not an admin.
  • Alerts should be configurable whenever a VM or host is not functioning correctly.

Infinio

Infinio has no real market competition. There was a tool called Pernix FVP that did both read/write acceleration that I evaluated that became end-of-life while it was in POC. It was more complicated to deploy and remove than Infinio and required downtime for each host. Also, the fact that it was no longer supported made the decision to choose Infinio easy.

Return on Investment

HVE-VDI Appliance

  • They have made us one of the leading schools in our area for sure.
  • We were able to role out Texas Online State Testing with little to no problems. THIS IS HUGE!!
  • Less downtime... Their server solutions are one of the most stable in the business. I rarely ever have server issues. When you do, you can be back up and be going in Minutes.
