The loss of an industry champion, and a great guy

The loss of an industry champion, and a great guy

 As individuals and as a company, we mourn the recent loss of our dear colleague John Dodge. John was a champion of Login VSI and, in his role leading the EUC reference architecture program at VMware, we appreciated his candid feedback for improvements as well as nudges in the direction he thought we could grow our position in the desktop virtualization market. He inspired us as a company and reflected back to us what we value to the core: helping IT deliver the best end user experience. While this was very valuable and helped build our company, what I remember about John the person was his ready smile, his quick wit and helpfulness.

I met him for the first time at VMworld in Barcelona last year. He cheerfully suffered through multiple takes on a video interview and we had fun creating what basically amounted to blooper videos. Upon reviewing the footage, I decided the videos could not be used publicly, and I deleted most of them. We held on to this photo. I regret that the videos are lost, but I keep a memory of the spirit of helpfulness, confidence and determination when I remember this and other occasions I have had the fortune of knowing John.

We send our deepest condolences to John’s family as we, among many others, feel this loss.

What our customers are saying

Maarten Bruijnesteijn - PPG

"We are using Login VSI for hardware scaling. By testing the number of users that can run on our environment, we know the amount of hardware that we will need upfront. We also use Login VSI in our production acceptance process to test changes to the system to evaluate changes to the environment."

Maarten Bruijnesteijn, System Software Analyst at PPG Industries


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."
