technologyThe 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

Kelly Murphy - Gridstore

"Ultimately, VDI is about performance. If a customer's virtual experience is not as fast as the physical experience, they don’t use it. Login VSI is great in helping us to really quantify and to show performance, to test systems and design those systems in such a way to ensure that you can deliver that kind of performance."

Kelly Murphy, Chief Evangelist at HyperGrid

Michael Cooper - Citrix

"We use Login VSI as a level set. If we are looking at a system that we are putting on brand new hardware or that we are putting in the cloud, we may see those environments completely differently but the end result is: is the user going to have a good solid happy user experience? And what Login VSI provides us on all three platforms is fairly consistent apples-to-apples comparison: is the user happy?"

Michael Cooper, Director of Solutions Architecture and Global Alliances at Citrix Systems

Dan O'Farrell - Dell

"The primary goal of our VDI appliances is to simplify and to take the guesswork out of VDI, and the Login VSI tests help us to do that from a performance expectation capability. When we offer one of our appliances to our customers, we deliver benchmarks that are validated using multiple Login VSI workloads. When compared to a customer’s workload, these Login VSI-enabled benchmarks allow precise sizing estimations to be created."

Dan O'Farrell, Director, Product Marketing, Cloud & Client at Dell

Bill Galloway - Pivot3

“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
