Optimizing Virtual Desktop Operations with SCCM and Login AM

Optimizing Virtual Desktop Operations with SCCM and Login AM

It is sometimes said that if you want to be successful in an existing market, your product should not be 10% better but it should be 10 times better than competing products. Virtual desktop environments have this potential when it comes to delivery of Windows applications throughout the enterprise or from the cloud.

The challenges that IT organizations face when managing applications on a virtual desktop platform are quite different from those found in typical desktop environments. While Microsoft SCCM in its core is built for large distributed desktop environments, it doesn’t quite fit the virtual desktop use case.

A recent white paper released by one of our partners Login Consultants describes a number of key areas that need to be addressed in hosted desktop operations and how Login AM can be used as an add-on to (existing) Microsoft SCCM deployments to decrease operational cost and increase speed of delivery, continuity and agility.

Virtual desktop environments require a different management approach compared to traditional servers and desktops. The technical characteristics of virtual desktop environments, the level of automation and the organizational structure required to execute the promise of instant and easy application delivery throughout the enterprise forces organizations to rethink their processes and tools.

Microsoft SCCM is a solid choice but has its limitations, inefficiencies and requires a thorough technical understanding of its capabilities. Login AM is an easy-to-use add-on that removes complexity and the required in-depth scripting or packaging skills. It allows organizations to handle virtual desktops without the need to overhaul their existing infrastructure. Login AM gives virtual desktop administrators an increased level of independence and allows organizations to implement the processes that increase IT productivity and end-user satisfaction, while maintaining existing corporate governance.

Implementing Login AM together with Microsoft SCCM, provides organizations a solid solution for maintaining virtual desktop environments at substantial lower operational cost. Curious to find out how Login AM can help you with SCCM? Contact us for more information.

What our customers are saying

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 Cooper - Citrix

"We use Login VSI as a level set. If we are looking at a system that we are putting on brand new hardware or that we are putting in the cloud, we may see those environments completely differently but the end result is: is the user going to have a good solid happy user experience? And what Login VSI provides us on all three platforms is fairly consistent apples-to-apples comparison: is the user happy?"

Michael Cooper, Director of Solutions Architecture and Global Alliances at Citrix Systems


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.”
