Alternative Architectures Overview

Agenda : 

Agenda Introduction Alternative Architectures Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Terminal Services OS Streaming Blade PCs AMD Value Proposition Summary Overview of Alternative Architectures 2 9 January 2009

Slide 3: 

Overview of Alternative Architectures 3 9 January 2009 Introduction

Alternative Computing Architectures : 

Alternative Computing Architectures Overview of Alternative Architectures 4 9 January 2009 4 Client Partitioning (Vmware ACE)

Slide 5: 

Overview of Alternative Architectures 5 9 January 2009 Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure : 

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Overview of Alternative Architectures 6 9 January 2009

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure : 

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Overview of Alternative Architectures 7 9 January 2009

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure : 

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Advantages User can run any application without modification Can enhance disaster recovery (DR) plans Enhances security of data storage, simplifies desktop management Enables desktop consolidation Gives users control of their desktops Decoupling desktops from specific hardware provides flexibility Disadvantages Main server may become a single point of failure Requires low latency connection Licensing can be complicated Overview of Alternative Architectures 8 9 January 2009

Slide 9: 

Overview of Alternative Architectures 9 9 January 2009 Terminal Services

Terminal Services : 

Terminal Services Overview of Alternative Architectures 10 9 January 2009

Terminal Services : 

Terminal Services Advantages Server only has to manage one operating system Centralized management Computers can operate as both thin clients and full-featured PCs Can use bandwidth-constrained connections Disadvantages Less flexibility since only one operating system Complicated licensing Overview of Alternative Architectures 11 9 January 2009

Slide 12: 

Overview of Alternative Architectures 12 9 January 2009 OS Streaming

OS Streaming : 

OS Streaming Overview of Alternative Architectures 13 9 January 2009

OS Streaming : 

OS Streaming Advantages Uses local resources, so little difference between locally installed copy of operating system and streamed version All clients boot from single image, so easier management Disadvantages High bandwidth requirements Possible issues with imaging technologies Overview of Alternative Architectures 14 9 January 2009

Slide 15: 

Overview of Alternative Architectures 15 9 January 2009 Blade PCs

Blade PCs : 

Blade PCs Overview of Alternative Architectures 16 9 January 2009

Blade PCs : 

Blade PCs Advantages Lower TCO than other alternatives High level of security Processing/storage/networking away from user workspace Simple to dual-boot Disadvantages Higher acquisition costs than other alternatives Quality loss with multi-media Overview of Alternative Architectures 17 9 January 2009

Slide 18: 

Overview of Alternative Architectures 18 9 January 2009 AMD Value Proposition

Slide 19: 

Opteron is ideal for VDI, terminal Services, and OS Streaming Based on 64-bit architecture, compatible with existing x86 32-bit architecture Quad-core upgradeability Enhance performance-per-watt (PPW) capabilities Athlon is ideal for Blade PCs Low-power envelope Integrated DDR Memory Controller Enhanced Virus Protection Overview of Alternative Architectures 19 9 January 2009 AMD Opteron AMD Athlon

AMD Opteron Features : 

AMD Opteron Features Direct Connect Architecture Integrated Memory Controller HyperTransport™ AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-V™) and Rapid Virtualization Indexing Address Space IDs (ASIDs) Tagged Translation Look-aside Buffer (TLB) Device Exclusion Vector (DEV) Overview of Alternative Architectures 20 9 January 2009
