Login AM: Automate the Creation and Updating of Master Images

With Login AM, IT Administrators can save time and money on the management of their master images by completely automating the creation and update process. Login AM breaks apart the different actions of building a desktop image so that updates, new application installs, and operating system (OS) optimizations aren’t lost or redone each time these images are modified. With the increasing pace of OS and application updates, you can focus on just changing that one piece and let Login AM completely build your images using the same settings for everything else each time. With Login AM, you never have to build a complete desktop image from scratch again.

Accelerate time to value

Thanks to Login AM, IT administrators can quickly apply any changes to images with the highest quality possible. Since Login AM has been in the market for over 10 years, it has proven to save costs and accelerate time to value.

Automate changes and manual tasks

Frequent changes to VDI, Citrix XenApp or Microsoft RDS environments are common for IT administrators and organizations. Updates, changing end user requirements and deployment of new applications require many manual tasks that are repetitive in nature. Manual updates cause human errors and server configuration fragmentation leads to complex troubleshooting and recurring incidents.

In complex virtual desktop environments it is even more important to stay in control and maintain a predictable end user experience. To be able to deliver a high quality service in a 24/7 environment it is essential to automate changes to the highest degree possible. This improves the quality of service and saves time and money resolving incidents resulting from incorrect updates. It also lets you easily set up identical test environments on demand, eliminating the need to maintain these costly environments. Login AM does this with just a click of a button.

Quick response to change

Login AM allows IT administrators to fully automate day-to-day deployment and configuration tasks quickly and easily. It focuses on the ever increasing need of IT organizations to be flexible and quick to respond to any kind of change and/or business demand while keeping the quality of the services up to the highest standards the business has come to rely on.

Flexible and lightweight solution

The design of Login AM closely follows this idea and aims to enable flexibility through a lightweight architecture based on a non-intrusive Microsoft PowerShell module and file based database that is implemented using XML. The basic setup of the Login AM installation consists of a Login AM server that holds the file-based database, and the user interface to create and configure Login AM instances. As the complete configuration of Login AM is stored in a single file share, daily management tasks like backup become relatively straightforward, without the need for any additional costly components.

Usage reporting for providers

For those customers who need to track application and desktop usage, Login AM 2017 provides reporting features that helps understand system utilization, which is something they might want to be able to charge for. Application Usage reporting provides detailed information regarding the number of users accessing different applications, as well as showing how many individual uses per application, per a given timeframe. Desktop Usage reporting records the maximum number of concurrent sessions and/or the number of unique users at specific times, per day / month, on your platform. Discover platform usage trends over longer periods while also seeing your usage peaks per day.

What our customers are saying

Dan O'Farrell - Dell

"The primary goal of our VDI appliances is to simplify and to take the guesswork out of VDI, and the Login VSI tests help us to do that from a performance expectation capability. When we offer one of our appliances to our customers, we deliver benchmarks that are validated using multiple Login VSI workloads. When compared to a customer’s workload, these Login VSI-enabled benchmarks allow precise sizing estimations to be created."

Dan O'Farrell, Director, Product Marketing, Cloud & Client at Dell


Shai Maskit - Kaminario

“We tested 750 seats so customers can compare Kaminario with solutions from other vendors. It really comes down to delivering the best user experience at the right price point. As soon as we show the solution and that it has been validated by Login VSI customers can rest assured that it will fit the rest of their environment.”

Shai Maskit, Director of Product & Solutions at Kaminario


Chris Gebhardt - NetApp
