Load testing remains crucial to build and maintain well-performing hosted desktop infrastructures based on Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop or Citrix VDI-in-a-Box. Login VSI can help you avoid performance problems in many ways:
- Benchmark different server and storage solutions and make the right decisions.
- Know how much hardware you need by right sizing your Citrix infrastructure.
- Gain insight in the maximum capacity by stress testing your Citrix environment.
- Test the impact of changes on Citrix performance before they are implemented.
