Some Brian Madden love “the best VDI / RDSH monitoring solution ever”

Some Brian Madden love “the best VDI / RDSH monitoring solution ever”

We adore Brian Madden (who doesn’t) but over the last week he’s demonstrated the feeling is mutual. He professed his love, not only by playing a juror’s role in awarding Login VSI the Finalist Award for Best of VMworld 2014, Desktop Virtualization and End-User Computing. Yesterday he wrote glowingly about our newest beta product, codenamed Login VUM, on his blog. It’s a monitoring tool (yet it isn’t) and Brian passionately believes this “exactly what's we've needed for the past 15 years.”

Why do Brian and others think Login VUM has qualities that are so special, so… attractive? Login VUM runs simulated users in your production environment and reports real-time on the performance metrics important to your end users (login times, app launch times, etc.). Why is this so important? Monitoring products will tell you what your systems are saying about performance. Login VUM, on the other hand, tells you specifically what your end users are experiencing. It doesn’t matter if your server says it is at 100% CPU capacity. If your end users are still happy, then it doesn’t matter. And why would you performance test with real users?

Brian especially likes that VUM is not trying to be another monitoring product, or a YAM (yet another monitor). The idea for later iterations of the product is you will roll Login VUM into your existing monitoring or reporting tool. So “the best VDI / RDSH monitoring solution ever” is not really a monitor. Either way, whatever it’s named or not named, we love it. Hear more about what Brian Madden and Jeroen van de Kamp say in this video and you can read Brian’s blog post here. And Brian, we love you too.

What our customers are saying

Dan O'Farrell - Dell

"The primary goal of our VDI appliances is to simplify and to take the guesswork out of VDI, and the Login VSI tests help us to do that from a performance expectation capability. When we offer one of our appliances to our customers, we deliver benchmarks that are validated using multiple Login VSI workloads. When compared to a customer’s workload, these Login VSI-enabled benchmarks allow precise sizing estimations to be created."

Dan O'Farrell, Director, Product Marketing, Cloud & Client at Dell


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


Bill Kleyman - MTM Technologies

"From the engineering perspective and from the architecture perspective, we absolutely love the technology behind Login VSI. We actually use Login VSI as a pro-active tool to help our customers understand the dynamic nature of a datacenter and the business."
