Top 3 Benefits of Scaling Azure Virtual Desktops With Azure Native Qumulo Storage

Authored by:

In today’s dynamic business landscape, organizations are constantly seeking ways to enhance productivity, streamline operations, and save infrastructure costs. The synergy between Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) and Azure Native Qumulo Hot (ANQ Hot) storage presents a compelling solution that addresses these needs comprehensively. By leveraging ANQ Hot’s scalable storage capabilities for their own workflows, businesses can unlock key benefits that may not be obvious to infrastructure owners. Let’s look into the top three advantages of harnessing this powerful combination of AVD with ANQ Hot.

1. Seamless Cloud-Native Scalability for Growing Workloads

Azure Virtual Desktop, with its cloud-based virtualization infrastructure, offers unmatched flexibility for organizations to scale their remote-desktop environments rapidly. However, to fully leverage the potential of AVD, a cloud-native profile-storage service that can scale with the growing number of desktop users needs to be a part of any solution. Azure Native Qumulo provides precisely that – a highly scalable, elastic, storage solution that seamlessly integrates with AVD deployments. Whether your organization experiences spikes in user activity, seasonal variations, or expansion into new markets, the combined power of AVD and ANQ Hot provides seamless scalability for both sustained and burst throughput demands.

2. Unmatched Performance and Elasticity:

The performance of any virtual desktop environment is highly dependent on its underlying storage infrastructure. Traditional storage solutions often struggle to meet the demands of AVD deployments, leading to performance bottlenecks, degraded user experiences, and increased management overhead at scale. By using ANQ Hot for profile storage, organizations can achieve predictably high performance across a wide range of workloads – providing burst capacity during peak usage periods, and then automatically returning to normal operations afterward so you won’t have to pay for throughput you’re not using. Beyond that, ANQ’s seamless scalability also means that customers who need to grow their user count by 100x, from 500 to 50,000 desktops, can leverage ANQ Hot to elastically meet the sudden growth demand. This single capability epitomizes ANQ as a true cloud-native service, providing both capacity and performance through elastic scalability when either (or both) are needed.

3. Optimized Cost Efficiency:

Compared to Azure Files or Azure NetApp files, ANQ Hot may save as much as 90% off your storage bill. ANQ Hot provides a disruptively low pay-as-you-go pricing model, where storage and performance are billed on different pricing dimensions. This means that for AVD environments, customers can align their desktop computing costs with actual usage, paying only for the storage and performance they need and use, minimizing waste and maximizing ROI.

The combination of AVD with ANQ Hot offers a compelling solution for organizations seeking to enhance productivity, streamline operations, and optimize costs. Whether it’s scaling desktop environments, ensuring high performance and reliability for a business-critical service, or maximizing cost efficiency, this powerful synergy delivers tangible benefits across core use cases, empowering businesses to accelerate their cloud adoption strategy. Embrace the future of desktop virtualization with AVD and ANQ Hot – your gateway to unparalleled flexibility, performance, and cost savings.
