DP Facilities Partners with Tintri to Deliver VDI Solutions, Addressing the New Urgency Around End-User Computing

DP Facilities, provider of mission-critical data center, colocation, custom design and build services, and disaster recovery solutions, and Tintri, a data storage company specializing in Intelligent Infrastructure solutions that are autonomous, scalable, and architected for operational simplicity, today announced their strategic partnership to deliver integrated VDI solutions. Together, the companies are offering a purpose-built solution that combines VDI-optimized storage with colocation services within DP Facilities' highly secure and fully compliant Wise, VA, data center. By offering these integrated services, the partnership empowers federal and commercial customers to fully realize the promise of VDI - greater control, scale, cost-efficiency, and performance consistency for end-user computing (EUC).

While many organizations have struggled to realize the above benefits of VDI using conventional infrastructure, Tintri's Intelligent Infrastructure for VDI solutions platform overcomes these challenges by offering storage designed specifically for virtualization - simplifying, automating, and scaling VDI environments easily. This platform enables teams to deploy storage, implement remote user computing, and manage thousands of virtual desktops from a single view. The VDI environment is optimized by a highly autonomousTintri system that leverages advanced machine learning to deliver real-time insights and analytics for ongoing success.

This VDI solution, now offered within DP Facilities' 65,000-square foot, state-of-the-art Mineral Gap data center in Wise County, VA, complements DP Facilities' colocation offering by allowing vital computing software to be easily acquired and provisioned alongside secure, scalable, and resilient physical infrastructure.

DP Facilities' colocation services in Wise, VA, support customer IT compute requirements with reduced operating costs; reliable, redundant utility power; and up to 3MW of renewable energy from the adjacent solar farm scheduled for completion in Q4 2020. To meet the strict security requirements of even the most demanding verticals (including government, healthcare, and financial services), the facility meets DCOI requirements and is designed to meet the unique security-first requirements of DOD SAP (News - Alert)/National Security agencies and contractors.

"Remote-user IT needs are constantly expanding, especially in light of the recent pandemic, and being able to remain agile and efficient is key to keeping pace with increasing demands. That's why we're excited to announce this partnership with Tintri, as it enables the data center colocation with VDI solutions procurement process to happen more easily and efficiently and empowers government agencies and commercial enterprises to leverage a comprehensive solution through a simplified process," comments Steve Brown (News - Alert), Vice President of DP Facilities. "We look forward to helping organizations leverage this innovative VDI solution platform from within our highly secure and fully compliant Tier III data center in Wise, VA, to meet even their most stringent, security-focused business requirements."

"The appeal and even the necessity of VDI has strengthened across a number of verticals due to the increased need to accommodate remote workers. We are proud to support these evolving requirements by enabling customers' virtual desktop environments to be more autonomous and intelligent - providing service consistency, dynamic scalability, better cost efficiency and a much better user experience than ever before," states Erwin Daria, Field CTO at Tintri. "We're excited to bring this collaborative offering based on intelligent infrastructure to market alongside DP Facilities, together delivering a complete solution that makes it simple to find and consume data center services and incorporate new software advantages."

DP Facilities' Mineral Gap data center in Wise, Virginia, is covered by a GSA (News - Alert) IT Schedule 70 Contract Award. State and local government clients may also utilize Schedule 70 award pricing at the data center.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
