Windows Server 2016 has a Significant Impact on VDI environments

Nowadays IT departments are responsible for delivering desktops, applications and online services to end users through a digital workspace in any virtualized environment. This requires a flexible and secure virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). A successful deployment of this infrastructure comes down to one thing: end user experience. So, the IT team must be able to rise to the challenge of delivering outstanding services, while reducing the complexity and costs associated with the infrastructure. The speed, capacity and configuration of centralized servers become key factors in delivering a great experience for virtualized workspaces.

With Microsoft’s release of Windows Server 2016 in October 2016, enterprises will look to upgrade their Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environments. When updating an existing RDS or planning a new environment, you’ll need to fully understand the performance impact to be able to avoid scalability problems.

This white paper offers insights on how migrating and upgrading to the latest Windows operating system could impact your users’ experience. Our initial analysis and hands-on testing using Login VSI’s suite of testing, monitoring and management tools reveal the potential impact that Windows Server 2016 can have on virtual desktops. The goal is to help you identify and quickly resolve performance issues upfront before receiving complaints from the important end users. The performance impact can be mitigated with careful management of VDIops, which includes every stage of the Microsoft RDS environment.

What our customers are saying

Kelly Murphy - Gridstore

"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, CTO and Founder at HyperGrid

Keith Hageman - Micron

"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

Todd Mace - PernixData

"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."
