Product description:

Purchasing expansion servers and storage for the AFRL/RQ Virtual Desktop Infrastructure project. The AFRL/RQ Virtual Desktop Infrastructure provides very high performance Virtual Machines to support the Research and Development mission of AFRL/RQ. These virtual machines will be used on the DREN network as well as in networks isolated by virtual switches and networks to provide private, secure research environments for existing programs and for new programs that may require a full laboratory set up on very short notice.
