Getting Started Video Series for Login VSI

Getting Started video series for Login VSI

I learned that Jurassic World brought $511.8 million in revenue in its first few days. This made me think about updating the Getting Started videos for Login VSI 4.x. With more than 10,000 views in one year, the previous Getting Started video was *almost* as successful as Jurassic World. I’m hoping better CGI, more explosions and even more realistic screen captures will skyrocket view numbers.

Product Manager / Senior Alligator Wrangler on the set of "Getting Started with Login VSI II"

In this updated getting started video, I will guide you through the complete setup and configuration of Login VSI, all the way to analyzing your first test results. If you chose to start with this video rather than the product documentation, you will be well on your way very fast.

Part 1: Walkthrough of the prerequisites, architecture overview, download binaries and installation

The first video is a walkthrough of the prerequisites, an overview of the architecture and a short explanation on how to download the binaries and to request your free Login VSI trial license.

Part 2: Test platform setup and configuration of your first test

In this video, you can see how to activate the software, create test user accounts in Active Directory, create and share the VSIshare. Also you will get a description on how to configure Login VSI to connect to your RDSH farm for performance tests.

Part 3: Executing the first test and analyzing results

Last but not least, I will show you how to execute your first performance test and begin analyzing the results. If you would like a deeper dive into analyzing results, check this video I made a while back.

I hope these videos helped you out installing Login VSI, you would do me a great pleasure if you would share this using this fancy pre-populated tweet :).

Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop

Update: For those of you setting up Citrix XenApp or XenDesktop environments I have created an additional version of the getting started video including all Citrix components. In this video you will learn how to setup Login VSI to start testing XenApp/Xendesktop via StoreFront in no time.

Ps. also make sure to check out the getting started videos for Login PI.

What our customers are saying

Tony Reynolds - 23Technology

"As a cloud and virtualisation consultancy, 23Technology use Login VSI to prove the scalability of our paper designs for our customers. It has become an important part of our assurance process. In one instance, it helped us to successfully complete a project by showing that, with correctly configured anti-virus, the designed solution scaled to meet our client’s needs."

Tony Reynolds, Technical Director at 23Technology


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


Keith Hageman - Micron

"When I joined Micron in June 2014, the first thing I did is find out if we have a copy of Login VSI and if we could run a 1000 user test case instance (which we could). We use Login VSI to run tests for customers and for case studies and I really have loved Login VSI for the last 3 or 4 years.”
