Virtualization Practice podcast about Login PI for DaaS and VDI

Virtualization Practice podcast about Login PI for DaaS and VDI

A couple weeks ago I was invited to participate in the Virtual Thoughts podcast. I chatted with cloud analyst Ed Haletky (@Texiwill) about Login VSI / Login PI and where the product idea came from and some of the cool use cases people are using Login PI for.

You can find the podcast here:

Some of the things we talk about in the video:

  • Where did the name Login PI come from?
  • What is Login VSI? What does it do? How does it work?
  • What’s different about a synthetic user vs a drone user?
  • What’s the benefit of Login VSI’s predefined workloads?
  • What is VSImax, and how is it calculated?
  • What’s the difference between Login VSI and Login PI? When should I use one or the other?
  • How does Login PI monitor the production environment?
  • What’s different about measuring user experience vs collecting other performance metrics?
  • What kinds of things can Login PI monitor and alert on?
  • What improvements are coming in Login PI?
  • What platforms does Login PI work with? What about DaaS offerings?
  • Can I customize Login PI workloads with other apps?
  • Can I measure 3D graphics apps or GPU usage with Login VSI or Login PI?

During the video Edward sums up the added benefit of Login PI pretty good: “End-user experience is the key. It’s not just about the raw numbers, a load time of ½ seconds might be alright, but when it’s 3 seconds your users will start complaining. Login PI is going to let you know what the end-users are experiencing

Check it out – it’s also a rare opportunity to see me rocking the Wizard beard.

What our customers are saying

Michael Mainusch - Dachser

“With Login VSI, we can simulate the effects and compatibilities of applications and patches, as well as scaling in a virtualized terminal server environment, with minimal expenditure of time. Due to the adaptability of Login VSI to individual customer environments, we can simulate the real production environment, using the achieved measurement results and assertions.”

Michael Mainusch, Team Leader Application Services at Dachser

Todd Mace - PernixData

"Login VSI has been a great partner for us. Customers use PernixData with Login VSI to help validate their user experience. Login VSI helps to see what their performance bottlenecks are and our software helps to mediate some of that. Login VSI has been a kind of defacto standard to be able to help that validation and help the customer to be able to come up with a solution to fix it."

Todd Mace, Product Manager at PernixData

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.”
