13 Who is Leith? Founded in 1969 in downtown Raleigh, NC Began as a single- point Lincoln dealership Now a dealership group representing 27 different car manufacturers 32 locations throughout the state 2,000 employees

14 Drivers for VDI Physical PC infrastructure was not keeping pace with enterprise needs Managing and updating physical endpoints across 32 locations and several campuses was taking too much IT resource Collaboration too difficult with multiple copies of the same data on different client devices Applications could not be delivered quickly enough

15 Phase 1 Plan: 800 Virtual Desktops Focus mainly on executives and administrative staff Knowledge worker desktops More advanced personalization and application needs Technology choices VMware for virtualization and connectivity because of success with server virtualization Unidesk for app delivery and image management because of strong app compatibility and simplicity EMC XtremIO all-flash storage array because of performance and space efficiency

16 Phase 1 Today: Nearing 100% Completion All desktops are persistent to save user changes EMC XtremIO de-duplication minimizes space footprint Unidesk layering makes management simple 80 applications delivered by Unidesk as virtual disk app layers to different VMs Office, CRM, manufacturing apps, etc. 1 Windows 7 OS layer for easy patching Performance is a major improvement over old PCs Moving data into data center is improving security End users can access all apps, even legacy ones Day-to-day handled by helpdesk, freeing up senior IT

17 But Then We Had a Problem Still had 1,200 more desktops in need of refresh Phase 1 success made virtualization the choice over buying new PCs Budget constraints prevented us from simply expanding our Phase 1 environment

18 Phase 2 Plan: 1,200 Virtual Desktops Primary use case is customer service team Less personalization needed, mostly browser-based apps Technology choices Microsoft Hyper-V for virtualization (already owned as part of Windows Server EA, so zero-cost) Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) for connectivity (much lower cost than VMware Horizon, RDP protocol and client device support significantly improved) Unidesk as common tool for app delivery and image management, plus scalable RDS collection management EMC XtremIO as common storage array

19 Phase 2 Today: Proceeding as Planned 200 desktops deployed and counting EMC XtremIO de-duplication minimizes space footprint Unidesk layering makes management simple Small number of apps delivered by Unidesk as virtual disk app layers to all VMs Performance and user experience just as good as Phase 1 Same security and centralization benefits for IT, same simplicity enables helpdesk to own and manage

20 Phase 3: Windows 10 Migration IT team is actively testing with Windows 10 Desktops on Microsoft VDI/Hyper-V/Unidesk will be the first to move to Windows 10 Unidesk layering makes Windows 10 migration easier with simple app repackaging and delivery (also lets us just swap the OS layer) Will enable us to be more agile in the services we provide to end users

21 EMC XtremIO Considerations Enabling us to scale from 800 to 2000 desktops without increased latency Great performance and overall efficiency/data reduction ratios with room leftover for other non-vdi workloads

22 Unidesk Considerations Flexibility to choose whatever cloud infrastructure we want VMware for heavy compute and resource intensive use cases Microsoft Hyper-V for simpler needs, greatly minimizing costs Option to move some (or all) apps to the cloud later Leverage Unidesk coming support for Azure RemoteApp Makes Windows 10 migration and app re-packaging easy Eliminate hassle of MSIs and isolating apps Create virtual disk layers once and deliver anywhere in minutes Unidesk Layering Innova9on
