Datrium DVX

Citrix Ready Product Image / Logo

Datrium DVX delivers an optimal user experience with a scalable architecture and at a lower cost ($/desktop) than other storage solutions. This is accomplished by converging storage and compute without the compromises or rigidity of traditional convergence or the lock-in and scaling unpredictability of hyperconvergence (HCI).

Product Details

As IT transforms to deliver with more agility into the On-Demand Economy, it has to change. There are too many products to manage data, and differences increase in multiple clouds. This keeps administrative load too high, limits workload portability, and makes governance across sites nearly impossible. Datrium Automatrix is the first autonomous data platform to converge the five essential data services - primary storage, backup, encryption, mobility and DR - with a consistent operating experience across multiple clouds. It eliminates product sprawl, workload immobility, and siloed data management to remove the roadblocks to business agility, while optimizing IT investment and mitigating risk. 

The first steps to IT Transformation are to automate, simplify, and converge to lower cost. DVX was the first technology to use split provisioning to keep IO speed local to host configurations. It uses a separate and scaleable persistence pool to deliver zero storage administration. It also includes NoBackup™ data protection with policies at the workgroup level to give users instant RTO. With its unique approach to security, DVX can encrypt data in use, in flight, and at rest, while still supporting always-on deduplication, compression and erasure coding.

Benefits of Datrium DVX with Citrix

  • Start small and scale up thousands of desktops using new or existing hosts.
  • Data reduction rates of 6:1 due to global deduplication and compression without hardware lock-ins.
  • Snapshot, cloning, and elastic replication ensure persistent desktops are protected locally and off-site for blazing fast recovery.
  • Protection with AES-XTS-256 end-to-end software encryption without impsct to end-users.

Where most VDI deployments are challenged by the complexity that comes with brittle, expensive array-based infrastructure, traditional hyperconvergence has failed to deliver an answer for massive consolidation, low latency workloads, and built-in backup on-prem and to cloud. Datrium DVX provides ultimate flexibility and performance for virtual desktops, handling the most demanding applications, and boot & login storms as it scales from a few hundred desktops to thousands, all while maintaining compelling economics with a high return on investment.
