Login VSI Delivers New Approach to Virtual Desktop Performance Insights
Login PI (formerly Login VUM) Release Candidate available for immediate download
Login VSI, the company who defines industry standards in virtualized desktop performance testing, announces today the Release Candidate for its newest, Login PI. This second product, following the flagship eponymously named Login VSI, introduces a fresh take in monitoring and alerting IT administrators to performance issues in their virtualized desktop environment (whether VMware Horizon View, Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp, Microsoft RDS).
Unique about Login PI is its “user centric” approach to performance evaluation. Rather than looking at systems-level performance or CPU, Login PI focuses on what end users actually experience, such as logon times and application start times. Importantly, this differentiation brings IT administrators closer to their business objectives around delivering excellent, rich end user experiences—a critical success factor in any virtualized desktop deployment. In practical daily maintenance of the virtualized desktop environment, Login PI helps keep IT administrators ahead of trouble tickets.
Login PI is also introduced as the new product name. Previously, the beta release was called Login VUM. Login PI was chosen to reflect the benefit of Performance Insights for IT administrators and IT departments. The new logo suggests vision and insight, two benefits of the product.
Adam Carter, Login PI Product Manager says, “Login PI works for both on-premises and hosted DaaS models. We see both enterprises and services providers eager to maintain and validate high quality service. Login PI gives benchmarks, indicates trends and helps quantify the end user experience of performance. Businesses intent on reaping the lower TCO and higher quality of service benefits of new VDI models will want to adopt both Login VSI and Login PI.”
The Login PI Release Candidate—a feature-complete, fully functional version of the product—is available for immediate evaluation today at no cost. Special pricing of 50% off for early adopters is in effect until the formal release and launch event for Login PI in March 2015. Interested parties may go to www.loginvsi.com/products/login-pi complete the registration form. Once the form is submitted, customers will receive a link to download the installer and setup guide.
