Lakeside Software and Login VSI Offer Complete Solution for VDI Performance

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.

Read the new white paper that explains how SysTrack and Login VSI’s testing tool can be combined effectively to create and to ensure the best possible performance for centralized desktop end-users.

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.

Scalability testing Parallels Remote Application Server with Login VSI

Windows 10 Default File Type Associations and Login VSI

When Login VSI 4.1 was released, the majority of desktops were running Windows 7 and life was easy. We’d set the default filetype for an application and it would simply work. The default and industry standard workloads in Login VSI include launching and using Adobe Reader as part of the virtual user simulation. Because Login VSI doesn’t always know which version of Adobe Reader is installed, or where it’s installed, the workload relies on the file type association (FTA) for .pdf documents to be… Continue Reading

Investigating Online Application Performance with Login PI

As many companies do, we use a CRM system. Recently, I have been getting complaints about our cloud CRM system, Microsoft Dynamics, being slow. I tried to investigate this by shadowing one of our users to see what was wrong. As expected, everything was fast. 15 minutes later, the same user reported slowness again. How could I investigate this without bothering the users? Continue Reading
