The SnapVDI solution features all of the hardware, software and firmware components necessary for a robust deployment, including SnapVDI Servers, Storage, SPARK Cache Acceleration, SnapVDI Management software, and SnapVDI Zero Clients.
VMware Horizon 7 is a software-based VDI solution that allows organizations to deliver virtualized or remote desktops and applications through a single virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) platform. Horizon 7 can also support end users with access to all of their desktops and applications through a single unified workspace. VMware Horizon 7 can be licensed to run on existing hardware or can be paired with other hardware provided by a thirdparty to create a true standalone VDI solution.
While VMware Horizon is geared toward VDI from a software perspective, SnapVDI is the only VDI vendor who offers all necessary software and hardware components for a complete VDI solution and was architected from the ground up specifically for VDI. This allows SnapVDI to deliver greater performance since most VDI solutions with multiple dissimilar vendors are unable to deliver true desktop performance due to the components’ inabilities to natively communicate with one another.
SnapVDI is also a true standalone VDI solution, meaning that it runs on users’ existing networks, but is still isolated from the hosted premise and dedicated solely to VDI. VMware Horizon can also be employed in a hosted premise; however, this requires numerous other hardware components, customized specifications from each vendor, and a specialized team to architect and implement the solution - typically at a premium price. Many VDI administrators utilize Horizon in an ‘integrated’ environment, meaning the licenses are simply added and the users start to operate with the existing hardware infrastructure. This is a suitable solution for smaller VDI deployments - typically under 50 users. However, as VDI deployments become larger in size, this option becomes less viable since the resources needed by the users can begin to significantly burden the entire network and degrade overall infrastructure performance. Hence, SnapVDI is the best standalone VDI for deployment even for large infrastructure.
