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

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


Kelly Murphy - Gridstore

"Ultimately, VDI is about performance. If a customer's virtual experience is not as fast as the physical experience, they don’t use it. Login VSI is great in helping us to really quantify and to show performance, to test systems and design those systems in such a way to ensure that you can deliver that kind of performance."
