As more organization prepare for and deploy hosted virtual desktops, it has become clear that there is a need to measure compatibility and performance for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). When planning and preparing, organizations would like to know which desktops, users and applications are a good fit for VDI, and which ones are not. Once deploying VDI, organizations want to proactively identify when performance and user experience does not meet expectations.
The technology layers of VDI make it more complex to measure and classify fitness and user experience. But with increased industry knowledge and the emergence of best practices, plus new purpose-built products such as Liquidware Labs’ Stratusphere, it is now possible to more accurately measure and classify VDI fitness and user experience. This white paper covers these best practices and provides an introduction to the VDI Fit and VDI UX classification capabilities in Stratusphere.
