virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployment Additionally, Pivot3’s
ability to scale compute, storage and graphics processing units (GPUs)

solution architecture utilizing Pivot3 HCI, Citrix Virtual Desktops and
Windows 10
. The reference architecture validates how Pivot3 can
support market-leading densities for demanding VDI workloads, helping
reduce the hardware footprint.

“We were delighted to see how Pivot3 performed with Login VSI’s
benchmark. We used one of the more demanding workloads with the Windows
10 operating system and Knowledge Worker workload profile, and Pivot3
was able to deliver incredibly impressive benchmark performance charts,”
said Blair Parkhill, director, products, Login VSI. “In our opinion,
Pivot3’s policy-based management capability is a powerful tool to
automate user performance management, simplify VDI, and deliver a
superior end-user experience.”
