Arcadia Case Study

Arcadia’s virtual desktop deployment was planned on estimated IOPS requirements across the general user base. However, after rollout, they found that developers, programmers, and heavy users were putting a greater than expected burden on the system. The backend disk systems were incapable of servicing the demand. Performance slipped, and complaints mounted.


  • Non-disruptive scale-up, scale-out enables unconstrained infrastructure growth

  • Performance increased from 5000 IOPS to 250,000 IOPS

  • Maintenance windows cut from 48 to 6 hours

  • Inclusive compression and deduplication

  • Five-year maintenance provides price stability
