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 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 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
"As a software vendor, the reason that we became a Login VSI customer is that we wanted to see how we compared to our competitors. After talking to VMware and Citrix about how they test their products, it became clear to me that we needed to follow our strategic partners and be able to show how our product compares favorably to our competitors. We just completed a round of tests using Login VSI and you will see white papers showing performance data."
Shaun Donaldson, Alliances Director at Bitdefender
“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
