Today’s users demand access to their mission-critical applications and data anytime, anywhere. That’s not an easy expectation for IT to meet. Constant technological development, combined with an ongoing explosion in data requires backend systems that can effectively run these applications and manage constant updates across all levels of the enterprise. When executed properly, VDI helps agile IT organizations manage desktops, support remote users, and enforce standardized security and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies.
Virtual Instruments adds tremendous value to VDI deployments in multiple ways. WorkloadWisdom offers VDI Workload Models that deliver the industry’s richest analysis of storage protocol performance to help determine the optimal VDI storage solution and design. VirtualWisdom provides true real-time visibility into emergent issues—enabling proactive performance tuning and management before problems arise—and continual cost-optimization of the underlying VDI infrastructure.
WorkloadWisdom Workload Models for VDI
WorkloadWisdom is used to validate storage infrastructure performance and understand how changes in application workload behavior affect storage performance. It’s an integrated solution for workload acquisition, workload analysis, workload modeling and workload performance analytics.
Workload Models Benefits for VDI
Simplified Workflows: Eases the burden of VDI deployments.
Intuitive KPIs: Allow you to directly compare which storage system is best given the available storage budget, based on the workload characteristics provided and configurations evaluated.
Broad Protocol Coverage: Exposes the most critical workload simulation parameters to the user including NFS, FC and iSCSI.
Comprehensive Statistics: WorkloadWisdom appliances provide not only the top level KPIs, but also detailed request response statistics at a per-command level.
VirtualWisdom’s App-centric Infrastructure Performance Management provides the comprehensive visibility, definitive insights and actionable answers required to continually maintain optimal health, utilization and performance of the application infrastructure. This empowers IT performance teams to keep pace and alignment with agile business demands.
VirtualWisdom Benefits for VDI:
End-to-End Visibility: Get end-to-end I/O Profiles of VDI deployments to quickly identify root cause and proactively prevent problems—to ensure optimal desktop performance.
Proactive Performance/Availability Management: VirtualWisdom’s Applied Analytics module provides real-time, end-to-end performance monitoring, so that performance-focused IT teams can quickly and accurately identify root-causes—and confidently and proactively identify issues (latency, port congestions, flow control, etc.) before they become widespread performance impacting problems or outages.
Optimize VDI Infrastructure Costs: VirtualWisdom provides empirical I/O data that helps with CPU, Memory and I/O load balance, and consolidation—enabling teams to balance application workloads and eliminate any possible physical layer issues.
Historical Trending Analysis: Use VirtualWisdom’s historical trending and analysis to identify system overloads caused by I/O trends such as boot storms or virus scan storms.
True Infrastructure Performance Metrics: VirtualWisdom monitors true real-time infrastructure performance. Many IT organizations use APM solutions to measure the end-user experience, but lack detailed performance metrics on the responsiveness of the underlying infrastructure.
