The world of desktop virtualization is developing quickly. New solutions are emerging on a regular basis to improve user experience and increase the maximum capacity of virtualized desktop environments. But are these changes really improvements or just random guesses based on hardware specifications? How can technology vendors be sure that they offer the best solutions to their customers?
Login VSI helps technology vendors in three ways:
- To test the impact of every hardware and software change during their R&D process.
- To validate the performance of new VDI solutions so vendors can support their claims in white papers.
- To show the performance of their solutions during the POC and pilot phase to new customers.
“Predictability is a key piece to VDI. It’s one of reasons that VDI has scared people away, but Login VSI solves that. If you’re going to do it, do it right. Login VSI really gives that rubber stamp on doing it right.”
Andrew Mills, VDI Alliances Manager at Nutanix
"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
"As a software vendor, the reason that we became a Login VSI customer is that we wanted to see how we compared to our competitors. After talking to VMware and Citrix about how they test their products, it became clear to me that we needed to follow our strategic partners and be able to show how our product compares favorably to our competitors. We just completed a round of tests using Login VSI and you will see white papers showing performance data."
Shaun Donaldson, Alliances Director at Bitdefender
"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."
Kelly Murphy, Chief Evangelist at HyperGrid
Tested with Login VSI
The following hardware and software vendors have a proven commitment towards providing the best possible end-user experience in virtualized desktop environments. This commitment is displayed through the active use of the industry standard tool Login VSI in their performance and scalability testing efforts. The results of these tests are used to build better products, and are publicly available in white papers.
