Live from Citrix Synergy 2015 - Day 1

Live from Citrix Synergy 2015 - Day 1

Synergy Day 1 is over now, but for the Login VSI team this event came out of the gate fast and didn’t let up all day. It started in the Keynote, where they talked about Citrix Lifecycle Management (CLM). CLM uses blueprints and the cloud to rapidly provision environments. It’s ideal for rapidly building up lab environments, without the issues of maintaining them in between uses. Of course, no VDI lab environment is complete without Login VSI for testing, one of the very first blueprints available for CLM is an installation 'recipe' that will download and install Login VSI automatically.

My colleague Mark said it best: “If you are looking for a way to quickly prototype a Citrix environment and validate its performance, or you would like to simulate what happens to performance when you push an update or change to your environment, CLM is THE way to go forward.

After the keynote, it was time for us to get ready in the Expo Hall for lots of booth visitors, both those familiar with Login VSI and PI, and many who are new to our products. We were also standing by with cameras rolling to talk to some of our partners and customers about what’s happening in the VDI industry now, and what they’re up to. Here’s a roundup of the videos from day one:

Robert Krauss, Director of Strategic Alliances at Bitdefender

Robert Krauss is the Director of Strategic Alliances at Bitdefender, who talked about how they can accelerate VDI deployments for customers, and how they use Login VSI in their whitepapers.

Chris Gebhardt, Senior Technical Marketing Engineer at NetApp

Chris Gebhardt, a Technical Marketing Engineer from NetApp, explained to me what Doctors and Geoseismic researchers have in common, and how an architecture design that hasn’t been tested with Login VSI is just a guess.

Maarten Bruijnesteijn, System Software Analyst at PPG Industries

Maarten Bruijnesteijn is a System Software Analyst with PPG Industries, and he uses Login VSI in his daily work on his companies’ large Citrix XenApp environment.

Hollis Beale, Director of Technical Marketing at X-IO

Hollis Beale is the Tron Doctor – I mean Director of Technical Marketing – at X-IO. They use Login VSI every day to bang on their products and make sure they can deliver the performance they promise in their VDI solutions.

Randy Groves, CTO at Teradici

Randy Groves is the CTO at Teradici. If you use VMware View, or Amazon Workspaces, you’ve used Teradici products and maybe didn’t even know it. Your TV or monitor might have Teradici silicon built in to it. They are also doing some cool stuff with Login VSI, including using our new Graphics Workload to validate their delivery of graphically rich VDI desktops.
