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.
“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
“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
“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
"Login VSI has been a great partner for us. Customers use PernixData with Login VSI to help validate their user experience. Login VSI helps to see what their performance bottlenecks are and our software helps to mediate some of that. Login VSI has been a kind of defacto standard to be able to help that validation and help the customer to be able to come up with a solution to fix it."
Todd Mace, Product Manager at PernixData
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.
