Aberdeen’s VDI solution offers redundant head units with the implementation of the Aberdeen Stirling 287, VMware ESXi 6.5 and FT Ready server. VMware HA, along with the new VMware vSphere 6.5 capabilities of clusters and resource pools, along with tighter integration with other VMware tools such as VMware vCenter Server, vMotion, and VMware DRS. It greatly simplifies virtual machine provisioning, resource allocation, load balancing and migration, while also providing an easy-to-use, cost-effective, high-availability and failover solution for applications running in virtual machines. Using VMware vSphere 6.5 and VMware HA helps to eliminate single points of failure in the deployment of business-critical applications in virtual machines. At the same time, it enables you to maintain other inherent virtualization benefits such as higher system utilization, closer alignment of IT resources with business goals and priorities, and more streamlined, simplified and automated administration of larger infrastructure installations and systems.
AberVDI also incorporates shared storage with the Aberdeen XDAS GX22m. This storage device comes with four 16G fibre channel host ports on each controller and a new SAS3.0 12G hard drive backplane. When data grows out of the capacity threshold of a single subsystem, you can scale it up to an installation housing more than one hundred drives through expansion enclosures. Powered by the new generation RAID engine as its heart, the new XDAS GX Series can deliver outstanding performance for processing large amounts of data. The no delay, smooth operation it enables can satisfactorily meet the service levels your business requires. Coupled with the broad support for enterprise-level OS and server virtualization, it can serve as data storage for top-tier applications.
In addition, Aberdeen’s Stirling 287 offers higher I/O connectivity, featuring an incredible seven PCI Express 3.0 slots available for expansion use. This allows for up to seven slots of add-on cards such as GbE or 10GbE network interface controllers and 16Gb Fibre Channel adapters for storage expansion.
By employing Intel® Xeon® E5-2600v4 processors, the AberVDI solution delivers high performance and increased memory bandwidth for the next generation of smart and intelligent Internet of Things (IoT) and networking applications. The E5-2600v4 processor family provides the capabilities to meet the needs of a wide range of compute intensive applications, including video analytics, high-end medical imaging and security applications. Their enhanced security capabilities enable improved data encryption and deliver higher protection from attacks on data moving from devices at the edge, over the network to the cloud.
