Optimized IT Operations with Login AM Blueprints

Optimized IT Operations with Login AM Blueprints =

Stop losing valuable time, when setting up a new virtual environment with wrong configuration and other silly mistakes. This lost time you could probably use to integrate the end user applications into the virtual environment. Even if you have deployed such environments many times before, it always takes longer than expected to get the initial virtual environment up and running. Thanks to Login AM, this is a thing of the past.

Simply deploy the initial virtual environment using one of our blueprints and have a fully working virtual environment in a matter of hours. The Blueprint Deployment Wizard will guide you in a few clicks through the deployment process so you can get started with the things that really matter (like integrating the end user applications into the virtual environment). Login AM Blueprints contains all necessary instructions to deploy a full virtual environment, including installation of database servers, creation of databases, installation and configuration of Microsoft RDS, Citrix XenDesktop or VMware View.

Accelerate projects

IT departments are the facilitators for IT projects that support the business in achieving their goals. In today’s increasingly agile world, businesses need to be able to experiment and therefore quickly setup and tear down projects in an effort to find their next advantage over the competition. Project 'inertia' and complex IT procedures force business users to look elsewhere in order to stay ahead.

With Login AM Blueprints, IT departments can setup standardized 'playgrounds' for these project almost instantly. Experimenting and an agile workspace become achievable and affordable. Because of the nature of Login AM Blueprints, it even allows IT departments to seamlessly migrate project systems with all their detailed configuration to the production environment and build identical test environment for future updates or changes to the system.

Standardize deployments

Standardization has been a major goal of any IT department in the last ten years. Operational excellence is only achievable through standardization of IT services. However, if applied without appropriate automation, standardization leads to rigidity and tardiness of the IT services.

Login AM Blueprints help to standardize the way systems are deployed and configured but Login AM also allows organizations to easily capture and automate the deployment of required deviations for individual projects. This allows for greater agility without losing the benefits of standardization.

Blueprints can be viewed as a hierarchal tree. Each hierarchy consists of collections, layers, packages and the actual software needed to deploy an environment

Reproduction of problems

Malfunctions of production services can have a major impact on any organization. Quite often however, a malfunction only affects a part of the functionality. In an effort to find the cause of even the smallest malfunctions, IT organizations may need to take entire systems offline for extended periods. Even small malfunctions may lead to a massive impact.

Using Login AM Blueprints, IT organizations are able to recreate the affected systems in a sandbox environment in order to reproduce malfunctions. This gives IT organizations the ability to reproduce the problems without hindering the business processes any more they need to.

First time right

Referring back to the previous scenario, having fewer malfunctions in the first place is obviously preferable over having to trace their causes and repairing the damage afterwards. However, increasing business demand and expectations as well as the rigidity and tardiness of the IT operations don't allow the IT department to properly prepare and test most changes before they are applied to production systems.

Deploying a test environment is a breeze with Login AM Blueprints. Production systems that have been built using Login AM can be turned into blueprints on-the-fly and rebuilt in a test environment to allow the IT organization to properly test changes before deploying them to production systems. Changes made to the systems immediately become part of the blueprint.

Considerations

Unlike other automation systems, Login AM does not require a 'developer-level' understanding of workflow design and task automation. Instead, Login AM focuses on the IT professional and allows the IT professionals to easily and quickly automate their day-to-day tasks like deploying servers, applications and configuration changes.

Another important differentiator is that Login AM is not a system that requires an enterprise-wide adoption from the start. As Login AM is highly portable and does not require complex infrastructures, it is ideal to be deployed in exactly those places where it adds maximum value.

Scalability testing Parallels Remote Application Server with Login VSI

Windows 10 Default File Type Associations and Login VSI

When Login VSI 4.1 was released, the majority of desktops were running Windows 7 and life was easy. We’d set the default filetype for an application and it would simply work. The default and industry standard workloads in Login VSI include launching and using Adobe Reader as part of the virtual user simulation. Because Login VSI doesn’t always know which version of Adobe Reader is installed, or where it’s installed, the workload relies on the file type association (FTA) for .pdf documents to be… Continue Reading

How could I investigate this without bothering the users? Continue Reading
