Hands-on Labs: Test-drive Login VSI and Login PI

Hands-on Labs: Test-drive Login VSI and Login PI

I often get asked if there is a way to evaluate Login VSI or Login PI without actually installing and configuring it in someone’s own virtualized desktop environment. I hear two reasons why people want to bypass this. The first is that company policy prohibits installing trial software in their production environment. The second reason I hear is some do not have sufficient space for a few additional VMs in their lab or at home.

Great news for those looking for alternative ways to evaluate our products. I’m happy to introduce the new Hands-on Labs for Login PI and Login VSI. As part of the lab we will provision an environment on the spot that you can log on to via your browser. It’s really easy.

Not only do we provision the machines, training materials are available to guide you through the installation and configuration process step by step. The full lab experience will take you approximately 60 minutes.

This hands-on environment helps you to get a feel for what our software can do for you and if you like what you see, you can always continue with a Login VSI or Login PI trial within your own environment.

How to access the Hands-on lab?

Simply request access here and choose which product you would like to test drive. If you have any feedback or requests regarding this new functionality, feel free to let me know. Happy testing! :-)

What our customers are saying

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


Sajad Shah - Cancer Research

"Login VSI has empowered us to make more informed decisions on releasing a new vDisk which we now do on a monthly basis. We have found that Login VSI tests can also flag other issues in our environment that may not be picked up by our standard User Testing which allows us to either make the appropriate changes to the vDisk or workload script adjustments to run successful tests. This has given us peace of mind and allows us to release VDI’s with confidence."

Sajad Shah, Senior Technical Analyst at Cancer Research UK


Randy Groves - Teradici

"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.”
