Session-Based DesktopVirtualization

Costs 50% less
Session-Based Virtualization costs 50% less than PCs, and in many cases, 75% less than traditional VDI
1 OS per 100 users!
With only one OS and one set of Apps to manage for all users, administration and maintenance workloads are drastically reduced
Serves apps quicker
Once an application is launched in the OS by one user it's ready to go for all others, creating a lightning fast user experience
Currently Supporting Over 150k Virtual Desktops!

FireFly Computers brings you the lowest cost, easiest to manage, most efficient form of desktop virtualization – Session Based VDI. With this form of desktop virtualization, only one operating system and one set of applications are needed. The same OS environment is accessed by all users simultaneously, yet each user has the look and feel of their very own personal computer. By delivering individual sessions to each user rather than a whole OS like traditional VDI, many more users can be served by a much simpler and much more cost-effective server and networking infrastructure. Early attempts at session-based VDI weren’t great, but recent technologies along with our simple, turn-key FireFly servers have turned it into a surefire success!


Deployment Success Starts With The Server

The #1 factor in delivering a fast, high-performance virtual desktop experience is the host server. Not everyone is a host server expert, so we’ve designed the world’s first and most advanced lineup of turn-key, cost-effective host servers that come preconfigured for VDI success

Need To Go Big? No Problem!

The FireFly High Density Server (HDS) Array is the ultimate solution for large, centrally-managed environments. A 2U or 4U rack enclosure holds up-to eight server nodes, complete with cooling and redundant power. Each customizable node can operate independently or as part of an RDS cluster. Unlike blade enclosures, our FireFly HDS Array doesn’t rely on its own internal networking, software, or SAN to operate, making for a familiar and efficient deployment in a completely turn-key, preconfigured virtual desktop implementation.
