Combine tools for a complete VDI performance solution

A structured project approach, combined with the correct use of the best tools available in the industry today, will help organizations that are investigating, testing, migrating and using virtualized desktop environments to design, build and manage well-performing centralized desktop infrastructures at the lowest cost possible.

Many tools are available to help. They can help make better decisions during the project phases, and to help to keep out of trouble, during the resulting production phases. But which ones to choose, and when to best use them?

This white paper describes the VDI lifecycle – from the start of a new VDI project through to the ongoing operations of a production environment to create and ensure the best possible performance for the centralized desktop users.

By using Login VSI's software solutions, you can prevent performance issues and predict the end-user experience on:

  • Citrix: XenDesktop / XenApp
  • VMware Horizon View
  • Azure / AWS / DaaS
  • Microsoft RDS
  • Traditional PC

What is the VDI Stack?

A VDI architecture consists of several components. When designing your VDI solution, there are several factors that go in to selecting the components to use.

Some of these decisions may have been made already if you have standardized on particular vendors for components, or you may be open to evaluating several vendors to build a “best of breed” solution for your environment.

In either case, it’s a complex stack of components, and changing any one of them may impact the performance of your solution. Here are some of the typical platform decisions that need to be made:

  • Storage: Will you use local storage, SAN, or network-connected storage? Solid state or spinning disks, or a hybrid? Is there a software accelerator that you’ll run on top of the storage hardware?
  • Servers: Are you standardized on a particular hardware vendor for your storage? Do they already have a reference architecture for VDI solutions? Even if your vendor of choice has a reference architecture, understand how your environment differs from a generic reference architecture and how that may impact your performance or user density.
  • Hypervisors: There are several options for the virtualization layer. Customers may have standardized on one for their server workloads, but is it still the correct solution for client workloads, or should another standard be evaluated?

What is the VDI Lifecycle?

Very few IT projects end with deployment. Most projects follow a process of continual improvement that includes some or all of the following:

  • Envisioning
  • Planning
  • Testing/Validation

You can see this cycle play out in everything from large undertakings, like companywide desktop upgrades, to monthly security patching of deployed desktops. Login VSI has two products specifically designed to take you through this cycle: Login VSI, the industry-standard load-testing tool, used by some of the largest companies in the world, and Login PI, which safeguards your VDI performance & availability testing day-and-night.

There are, of course, many more platform decisions to be taken, which are outlined and described in our free-to-download white paper.

Why take the Risk?

A poorly built and maintained VDI environment will increase the risk of performance problems among all users.
Can you imagine the impact of user slowdowns or even total failures on your business continuity?
