As more organizations prepare for and deploy hosted virtual desktops, it has become clear that there is a need to support two related but critical phases. The first is to inventory and assess the physical desktop environment in order to create a baseline for the performance and quality of the user experience for the virtual desktop counterparts. When planning and preparing, organizations would like to know which desktops, users and applications are a good fit for desktop virtualization and which ones are not. The second phase is to track the virtual desktops in production in order to proactively identify when performance and user experience does not meet expectations, as well as to continue to refine and optimize the desktop image and infrastructure as changes are introduced into the environment.
Because virtual desktops live on shared systems, the layers of technology make it more complex to measure and classify fitness and user experience. But with increased industry knowledge and the emergence of best practices, plus new purpose-built products such as Liquidware Labs’ Stratusphere FIT and Stratusphere UX, it is now possible to more accurately measure and classify both fitness and user experience. This white paper covers these best practices and provides an introduction to the VDI FIT and VDI UX classification capabilities in Stratusphere FIT and Stratusphere UX.
The hybrid cloud has been heralded as a promising IT operational model enabling enterprises to maintain security and control over the infrastructure on which their applications run. At the same time, it promises to maximize ROI from their local data center and leverage public cloud infrastructure for an occasional demand spike. However, these benefits don’t come without challenges.
In this whitepaper you will learn:• The challenges in implementing an effective hybrid cloud• How key vendors are addressing their challenges• How to answer what, when and where to burst
