Beyond VDI and XenApp Benchmarking
I’d like to take a moment to look beyond the original use case—benchmarking—that Login VSI creators (shout out to @MarkPlettenberg) envisioned. The purpose is to help our existing Login VSI customers get even more out of the product. For enterprises and governments not yet using Login VSI, I want to lay out the full value proposition so that you have more resources for a purchase decision.
First, an obvious statement: virtualized desktop environments are complex. With users sharing centralized servers, storage, software and even GPUs, the IT department faces added difficulty offering the users the same performance they grew accustomed to on their physical devices. Over time performance can dwindle with no traceable cause. What’s more, application updates affect performance in unpredictable ways unique to your specific environment.
Testing in transformation projects
Using Login VSI for greenfield or transformation projects is already a given when end user experience is a priority. Most IT departments with XenApp or moving into VDI realize performance benchmarking is a necessary step for pilots and POCs. With so many technology and service options to consider when undertaking a new or expanding an existing VDI or XenApp project, capacity planning and load testing are essential to moving confidently into production. Testing should always be performed at scale with synthetic users, before real users are live and in production.
