The Login VSI Vendor Edition (Login VSI 4.1)
For many years now, Login VSI is the undisputed IT-industry standard in VDI performance load-testing and benchmarking.
All IT vendors (both hardware and software) that are serious about providing their customers with a well-performing virtual desktop infrastructure, rely on Login VSI technology to design and build their products, and to communicate the tangible results to the public. The results of these research and development efforts are visible in many technical publications.
Technology vendors benefit from the Login VSI Vendor Edition (*) in three ways:
- As a key component of the (behind the door) R&D process
- As the performance benchmark to communicate to the market
- In POC’s and pilots to compare infrastructure options, for sizing and scaling
and to do a full scale pre-production load-test/stress-test before production
(*) Login VSI’s Vendor Edition is the new name for classic load-testing solution Login VSI 4.1.
Well-know, Well-recognized statistics
Statistics Login VSImax and Login VSIbase are widely used by all major IT vendors in VDI reference architectures, validated designs, white papers and presentations. They have grown into the de-facto industry standard statistics to communicate the scalability (VSImax) and the baseline end-user experience (VSIbase) of any centralized virtual desktop environment including VMware Horizon View, Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop, and Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS), formerly known as Terminal Services.
As of 2017 the unique Login VSI testing methodology is officially patented. In addition to the methodology, the patent protects the metrics VSImax, VSIbase and the VSI threshold.
For IT- vendors that want to position themselves more firmly in the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure space we offer the opportunity to showcase their publications on our website, and in our newsletter (50.000+ relevant readers). This service is available for vendors of hardware like servers, storage, appliances, network components, processors, and vendors of virtual desktop and other (e.g. security) software. We offer two formal programs to our vendor customers: ‘Tested with Login VSI’ and ‘Validated by Login VSI’. For more information about these programs visit our vendor programs page.
“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
"When I joined Micron in June 2014, the first thing I did is find out if we have a copy of Login VSI and if we could run a 1000 user test case instance (which we could). We use Login VSI to run tests for customers and for case studies and I really have loved Login VSI for the last 3 or 4 years.”
Keith Hageman, Senior Solutions Architect at Micron Technology
"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
“We tested 750 seats so customers can compare Kaminario with solutions from other vendors. It really comes down to delivering the best user experience at the right price point. As soon as we show the solution and that it has been validated by Login VSI customers can rest assured that it will fit the rest of their environment.”
Shai Maskit, Director of Product & Solutions at Kaminario
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.
