Lakeside Software and Login VSI Offer Complete Solution for VDI Performance
Leading technology vendors announce business and technology alignment of respective assessment, monitoring and testing tools suites
Bloomfield Hills, Michigan - August 26, 2013 - Lakeside Software, the leading provider of IT analytics and business intelligence solutions, and Login VSI, the leader in virtual desktop performance and load testing technology, today announced a next step in their partnership bringing maximum value to customers looking to build and maintain virtualized desktop and application infrastructures that deliver the best user experience possible. Effective immediately, business opportunities will be approached together when possible and beneficial for the customer. Respective product suites will be aligned to ensure a worry free integration of load generation, assessment and monitoring capabilities.
Both companies will be demonstrating their collaborative solutions this week at VMworld 2013 in San Francisco.
The unique combination of Lakeside Software's SysTrack and Login VSI's Virtual Session Indexer provides architects with a comprehensive toolset to execute the full lifecycle of desktop virtualization projects:
- Lakeside SysTrack monitors IT environments and gathers detailed environmental and user data in existing end-user computing environments across physical and virtual platforms. Through SysTrack VMP, the Virtual Machine Planning tool, IT architects can model and design the future state of virtual desktop and application environments.
- Login VSI's Virtual Session Indexer simulates real world user behavior and tests the performance and scalability of virtual desktop infrastructures. Through Login VSI, IT architects can validate the calculated system scalability with different workloads and use scenarios before the official roll-out into production.
After the initial pilot implementation, both Lakeside SysTrack and Login VSI are leveraged to gain deep insights into the health of the environment, the end user experience, and to execute recurring scalability tests as applications and platforms are added or upgraded in the environment. This way both solutions help to protect and maintain the best possible performance in production by avoiding potential bottlenecks, and by providing insights to effectively fix performance problems when they may occur.
Lakeside and Login VSI commenced a close collaboration in June 2012 with the introduction of a SysTrack MarketPlace report for Login VSI. This report provides detailed guidance for user workload scripting for Login VSI benchmarking, and is available to any SysTrack customer.

Pim Brouwer, vice president of Alliances, Login VSI: “SysTrack end user analytics adds an impressive extra layer of detailed system information to the load tests we execute with Login VSI. This will enable enterprises to very effectively research and address potential performance problems, most often before they affect the users.”
Chetan Venkatesh, CTO and founder, Atlantis Computing: “The combination of Lakeside Software’s SysTrack and Login VSI is a powerful complement to our industry leading ILIO product. Atlantis Computing uses Login VSI to create standard benchmarks for performance for light, medium and heavy users, and SysTrack delivers real-world usage and performance analytics that enable Atlantis customers to match observed environmental workloads to Login VSI scenarios for more accurate testing. This information can then be easily viewed using the Atlantis SysTrack MarketPlace report.”
