The world of desktop virtualization is developing quickly. New solutions are emerging on a regular basis to improve user experience and increase the maximum capacity of virtualized desktop environments. But are these changes really improvements or just random guesses based on hardware specifications? How can technology vendors be sure that they offer the best solutions to their customers?
Login VSI helps our Technology Alliance Partners in three ways:
- To test the impact of every hardware and software change during their R&D process.
- To validate the performance of new VDI solutions so vendors can support their claims in white papers.
- To show the performance of their solutions during the POC and pilot phase to new customers.
Technology Alliance Partners
The following hardware and software technology alliance partners have a proven commitment to provide the best possible end-user experience in virtualized desktop environments. This commitment is displayed through the active use of the industry standard tool Login VSI in their performance and scalability testing efforts. The results of these tests are used to build better products, and are publicly available in reference architecture white papers.
Technology Vendor Testimonials
“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
"As the developer of the PCoIP protocol, we do a lot of our own internal benchmarking to make sure that we’re continuing to improve our protocol. But we can’t actually publish our internal benchmarks because everybody might think that the tests are biased. So when we want to publish results, we use Login VSI. That way, if a customer wants to repeat our results they can.”
Randy Groves, CTO at Teradici
“We tested 750 seats so customers can compare Kaminario with solutions from other vendors. It really comes down to delivering the best user experience at the right price point. As soon as we show the solution and that it has been validated by Login VSI customers can rest assured that it will fit the rest of their environment.”
Shai Maskit, Director of Product & Solutions at Kaminario
“The labs at Pivot3 have hundreds of machines. A portion of those are running different Login VSI configurations so we can be constantly configuring with different hardware to see how that affects desktops. Then we tweak the RAM and CPU, and tune so we know how many users we can support.”
Bill Galloway, Founder and CTO at Pivot3
