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

Johnny Blizzard - Health Insurance Organization

"We now have indisputable empirical proof supporting our claims. With Login VSI, we can run our own applications against various hardware platforms before we move to production! Application owners can see how their code impacts their users on our systems and we can present our findings to management for funding increases. We can also advocate for the users when supporting their claims of poor performance, all because of Login VSI."

Johnny Blizzard, Sr. IT Systems Engineer at a Health Insurance Organization


Chris Gebhardt - NetApp

“We use Login VSI to make sure that what we are recommending to our customers is much better than what their guesses are. Because if you don't do proper assessment and if you don’t use Login VSI, your architecture is just a guess.”

Chris Gebhardt, Senior Technical Marketing Engineer at NetApp


Michael Bernas - Workers' Compensation Board Alberta

“We've used Login VSI for the past 3 years as part of our Disaster Recovery Exercise. It's not only helped us in validating the functionality of our Citrix XenApp farm, but it's also been an invaluable tool in proving the number of concurrent connections into the environments. It’s allowed us to take our theoretical numbers and put actual real life data behind them.”
