Deliver a Stable and Predictable Virtual Desktop Environment with Login AM

How much risk am I willing to take? This is an important question that each IT professional should ask themselves whenever changes are to be applied to production systems. Risk is involved each time you deploy an application, hotfix or even a small configuration change. One way to mitigate risk is testing.

Testing however can be extremely expensive and time consuming but it does not always guarantee a successful deployment of change in a production environment. Organizations spend money on testing but do not get the results they expected. Manual configuration steps is one of the reasons why I have seen so many organizations struggle with their testing process.

Manual configuration steps

I have seen multiple levels of automation of virtual desktop environments. Some organizations only automate the deployment of their operating systems while others also automatically deploy their end user applications. But rarely have I encountered an organization that really automates every deployment and configuration aspect of their virtual desktop environment. Full automation includes the deployment of the infrastructure systems like SQL servers and the required databases, the creation of published applications with all the right settings, creation of Active Directory security groups, application of permissions on the local file system and more. Organizations that do only partial automation have to resort to manual steps to really make a systems and applications production ready.

The more manual steps are needed for applications and systems to become production ready, the more time it takes to deploy them. Manual steps also make it harder to keep systems uniformly configured. This is true for individual systems within a single environment like production, but it is equally true for entire environments in case you are trying to build a test environment that needs to closely resemble the production environment.

Most software distribution and deployment systems do not address all these other important aspects that make up a virtual desktop environment. For IT organizations it is almost impossible to build a clean test environment on a regular basis unless they resort to massive scripting which is also very costly, time consuming, error-prone and hard to maintain.

Login AM is able to deploy virtual desktop environments quickly and consistently. It covers all those areas that cannot be easily automated otherwise without the need for extensive scripting or other one-off solutions.

As Login AM automates all aspects of the virtual desktop, building a test environment or a user acceptance environment becomes a breeze. In fact, building additional environments becomes so easy and fast that it enables administrators to build, destroy and rebuild them routinely which in turn help administrators to become more productive and deliver a higher quality.
