  6. 6. The VDI Adoption Stages VDI VDI VDI VDI Test Pilot Production Acceleration - Deploy on - A few hundred - Thousands a few dozen desktops of desktops - 100,000 desktops - Test - Decide desktops - Typically technology between VDI, - Reap the use free feasibility XenApp, others benefits of VDI licenses - Small - Expect to see - VDI is mission (VMware, workgroup benefits of VDI critical Citrix, …) rollout including ROI© eG Innovations, Inc |
  7. 7. The Broken VDI Deployment Cycle Assess Why VDI Desktops Rollouts Fail- Much focus on early stages Maintain Plan and on desktop layer- Over-confidence in VDI performance- Performance issues are re-mediated after the fact Re-- No visibility into infrastructure Design Mediate- Fixing performance issues downstream is costly & it doesn’t scale Deploy© eG Innovations, Inc |
  8. 8. VDI Performance Challenges User Frustration IT Talent “Traditional management Shortage tools and desktop assessments fail to VDI High address today’s VDI Performance performance challenges: Challenges downtime too complex, too slow, too costly, too fragmented, too manual.” Complexity & Fragmentation Cost overrun© eG Innovations, Inc |
  9. 9. VDI Performance Pain 50% of all desktop virtualization projects stall or fail for 2 reasons: 1) Unacceptable End User Performance 2) Cost Overruns “Traditional management tools and desktop assessments are failing to deliver VDI performance, user acceptance and scalability.”© eG Innovations, Inc |

  13. 13. Virtual Desktop Assessment vs. VDI Performance AssessmentVirtual Desktop Assessment VDI Performance AssessmentTypically, when you are about to start Throughout the life span of your virtualdesktop virtualization (focus: pre- desktop deployment (focus: performancedeployment planning) – often free assurance and remediation, right-sizing)Benchmark usage of physical desktops in Benchmark your virtual desktopthe enterprise infrastructure – every layer, every tierIdentify popular desktop applications, usage Baseline current usage patterns and trendspatterns , power on times of your infrastructure (focus beyond the desktop)Identify which desktops can be virtualized, Identify where your performancewhich cannot bottlenecks lie in the VDI infrastructure and how you can scale your rollouts, ensuring ROI VDI Performance Assessments and Desktop Assessments solve different problems. They are complementary – not competing.© eG Innovations, Inc |
