HP and Citrix VDI-in-a-Box: Part 3 – User Experience Testing
In two recent blogs I described testing I performed to validate a Citrix VDI-in-a-Box and HP ProLiant reference architecture. The solution goes a long way to simplify the task of VDI deployment since it defines a low-cost, cookie-cutter approach for rapidly deploying VDI. Previously I ran a set of single server scalability tests to validate 50- and 100-user configurations based on the reference architecture, as well as a series of stress tests.
During this testing, I thought about how to extend performance measurements beyond metrics for the infrastructure components — I wanted to incorporate client/user data and capture the overall user experience. For this reason, I developed a method of recording user experience (UX) data while running scalability tests. This blog shares my results and data samples from recent VDI-in-a-Box UX testing. If you’d like to understand UX testing methodology I used, I’ve written a separate blog on that topic.
