Login PI v1.0 releases with fanfare

Login PI v1.0 releases with fanfare

Santa Clara, CA, April 28, 2015Login PI v1.0 is available now for IT administrators who want better insight into the performance of their production Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) or remote desktop session (RDS) host environment. Today’s release announcement includes the availability of analyst validation, a new Hands-on Lab, and a live podcast with industry gurus Brian Madden and Gabe Knuth today at 9:30 a.m. PDT.

Login PI gives IT the advantage of understanding the current end user experience within their VDI environment by using highly realistic synthetic users instead of production end users. This synthetic user approach allows IT to stay ahead of trouble tickets. The product uses the core technology of Login VSI, the industry standard performance testing and validation software. As John Abbott of 451 Research explains, Login PI “…can be a less intrusive and more predictable way of spotting problems before users themselves notice.” (451 Research report on Login PI, March 17 2015.)

With performance insights from Login PI, IT can be more proactive and effective in delivering high availability and an excellent end user experience. Because VDI environments are so complex and interactive, troubleshooting requires a proactive approach. (Read about proactive user experience in the Gartner report, Employ Multifaceted Monitoring Approaches for Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop, by Vivek Bhalla and Jonah Kowall published Jan 16, 2014 here.)

Additionally, Login PI, especially in combination with Login VSI, helps mitigate risk for IT. User productivity failures or system downtime come at a measurable financial and operational cost. Knowing performance bottlenecks and outages in advance of end users experiencing them is critical. This operational risk must be addressed by choosing the right technology and methodology for gaining performance insights.

“Login PI represents the next step for Login VSI to provide solutions for the most challenging issues in VDI—end user experience,” says Login VSI Product Manager, Adam Carter. “This product was built from our customers’ expressed needs, and makes a real difference in the IT administrator’s ability to have performance insight and knowledge,” Carter continues.

The Login PI Hands-on Lab is available for those who want a sandbox environment to evaluate Login PI. For those who want a full experience, the 30 day free trial is available.

What our customers are saying

Maarten Bruijnesteijn - PPG

"We are using Login VSI for hardware scaling. By testing the number of users that can run on our environment, we know the amount of hardware that we will need upfront. We also use Login VSI in our production acceptance process to test changes to the system to evaluate changes to the environment."

Maarten Bruijnesteijn, System Software Analyst at PPG Industries


Bill Galloway - Pivot3

“The labs at Pivot3 have hundreds of machines. A portion of those are running different Login VSI configurations so we can be constantly configuring with different hardware to see how that affects desktops. Then we tweak the RAM and CPU, and tune so we know how many users we can support.”

Bill Galloway, Founder and CTO at Pivot3


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."
