Barcelona, Spain (November 6, 2018): Login VSI, the industry standard in VDI/SBC performance testing, announces today the general availability of Release 3 (R3) of its proactive monitoring solution Login PI.

On October 2nd Microsoft released version 1809 (Codename: Redstone 5) for those who wanted to update manually.
On the 9th of October it started rolling out via automatic windows updates. Unfortunately there was an oversight in the update mechanism leading Microsoft to pause the update temporarily as during the upgrade users documents got deleted. While waiting for the fixed version of Windows 10 to be released we started doing our regular performance tests, as we did with Server 2019 and Office 2019 recently and the results where…well, not what we expected.
It’s there, Microsoft has GA released Windows Server 2019 on October 2nd as the successor of Windows Server 2016 (released Sept, 2016).
There are some notable new features but in our industry the biggest news is that the Remote Desktop Services role will still be available although it was rumored to disappear for a while it came back in insider-preview 17650. Of course many of the features relate to Azure but you can still run completely in your own datacenter if you prefer.
It has been an exciting time for all EUC enthusiasts, as Microsoft has announced a lot of interesting new bits that will influence our jobs in the upcoming time.
While Windows 10-multi user has not been a well-kept secret, the fact that it will be Azure only remained a secret for most people, until announced at Ignite, and it sparked a lot of discussion as you can see below this post by Jack Madden.
Microsoft Office, you can find it in nearly every enterprise IT environment and this week Microsoft has released Office 2019 to the first group of volume license customers.
Since the release of Microsoft Office 2007 Login VSI has always been keen to show the impact a new version has on scalability of your centralized desktop environment, whether its VMware Horizon, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops or plain RDSH and we of course did the same for this version.

Login VSI workload testing on AWS EC2 instances
If you are in the End User Compute (EUC) space like me, you are undoubtedly aware of the annual VDI Like A Pro survey. In this survey we continue to see the trend of interest in the public cloud growing, however most of the respondents cited cost and performance as major concerns when considering cloud options. At Login VSI we are seeing more traction with enterprises adopting cloud strategies for their digital workspaces, and I am personally very excited about this.
