Login AM: Automate the Creation and Updating of Master Images

With Login AM, IT Administrators can save time and money on the management of their master images by completely automating the creation and update process. Login AM breaks apart the different actions of building a desktop image so that updates, new application installs, and operating system optimizations aren’t lost or redone each time these images are modified. With the increasing pace of OS and application updates, you can focus on just changing that one piece and let Login AM completely build your images using the same settings for everything else each time. With Login AM, you never have to build a complete desktop image from scratch again.

Accelerate time to value

Thanks to Login AM, IT administrators can quickly apply any changes to images with the highest quality possible. Since Login AM has been in the market for over 10 years, it has proven to save costs and accelerate time to value.

Benefits

  • Autonomy: One solution for everything needed to deploy and maintain a virtual desktop environment
  • Rapid Automation: An easy-to-use interface and well defined tasks make automating a test lab faster than documenting it
  • Ultra-Small Footprint: Automating the set-up process of any deployment system to eliminate inefficiencies
  • Full scope: Automates every aspect of test labs for a complete hands-off experience
  • Blueprints: Turn automated test labs into reusable, sharable blueprints
  • Extensible: Got an API? Add custom-made extensions for the unique needs of your organization
  • Start Small: Start with the most important pieces first and extend later. The low overhead of Login AM makes almost any automated step worth the effort, no matter how small

Automate changes and manual tasks

Frequent changes to VDI, Citrix XenApp or Microsoft RDS environments are common for IT administrators and organizations. Updates, changing end user requirements and deployment of new applications require many manual tasks that are repetitive in nature. Manual updates cause human errors and server configuration fragmentation leads to complex troubleshooting and recurring incidents.

In complex virtual desktop environments it is even more important to stay in control and maintain a predictable end user experience. To be able to deliver a high quality service in a 24/7 environment it is essential to automate changes to the highest degree possible. This improves the quality of service and saves time and money resolving incidents resulting from incorrect updates. It also allows to easily set up identical test environments on demand, eliminating the need to maintain these costly environments. Login AM enables this, with just a click of a button.

Quick response to change

Login AM allows IT administrators to fully automate day-to-day deployment and configuration tasks quickly and easily. It focuses on the ever increasing need of IT organizations to be flexible and quick to respond to any kind of change and business demand while keeping the quality of the services up to the high standards the business has come to rely on.

Flexible and lightweight solution

The design of Login AM closely follows this idea and aims to enable flexibility through a lightweight architecture based on a non-intrusive Microsoft PowerShell module and file based database that is implemented using XML. The basic setup of the Login AM installation consists of a Login AM server that holds the file-based database, and the user interface to create and configure Login AM instances. As the complete configuration of Login AM is stored in a single file share, daily management tasks like backup become relatively straightforward, without the need for any additional costly components.

Login AM manages and automates:

  • Automated creation and maintenance of images including applications and configurations
  • Software deployment
  • On-demand system configuration
  • System and application hardening
  • Instant creation and maintenance of test and (user) acceptance environments
  • Citrix XenDesktop, VMware Horizon and Microsoft RDS application publication
  • Citrix XenDesktop, VMware Horizon and Microsoft RDS farm creation
  • User environment and profile on virtual desktop environments

What our customers are saying

Chris Gebhardt - NetApp

“We use Login VSI to make sure that what we are recommending to our customers is much better than what their guesses are. Because if you don't do proper assessment and if you don’t use Login VSI, your architecture is just a guess.”

Chris Gebhardt, Senior Technical Marketing Engineer at NetApp


Sajad Shah - Cancer Research

"Login VSI has empowered us to make more informed decisions on releasing a new vDisk which we now do on a monthly basis. We have found that Login VSI tests can also flag other issues in our environment that may not be picked up by our standard User Testing which allows us to either make the appropriate changes to the vDisk or workload script adjustments to run successful tests. This has given us peace of mind and allows us to release VDI’s with confidence."

Sajad Shah, Senior Technical Analyst at Cancer Research UK


Keith Hageman - Micron

"When I joined Micron in June 2014, the first thing I did is find out if we have a copy of Login VSI and if we could run a 1000 user test case instance (which we could). We use Login VSI to run tests for customers and for case studies and I really have loved Login VSI for the last 3 or 4 years.”

Keith Hageman, Senior Solutions Architect at Micron Technology
