IGEL is partnering with Login VSI, provider of software solutions to test and actively monitor the performance and availability of virtual desktop environments, including VDI and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), to deliver Login PI active monitoring functionality via the IGEL OS.

“Today’s businesses are looking for complete solutions that can proactively optimize the end-user computing experience, while offering protection for VDI and DaaS environments,” said Matthias Haas, CTO, IGEL. “We are pleased to be teaming with Login VSI to improve the performance and availability of our mutual customers’ virtual desktop environments. We see the addition of Login PI to the IGEL OS as an important development in our efforts to optimize the endpoint and drive end user productivity.”

Login VSI’s Login PI active monitoring solution uses synthetic users running 24/7, to monitor and to safeguard the optimal performance and availability of your own (or outsourced) virtual desktop infrastructure and associated business applications. Login PI active monitoring is part of the Login VSI Enterprise Edition (EE), the complete solution for proactive end-user experience optimization and protection for VDI and DaaS, and is using the same virtual user technology as the Login VSI load-generator solution.

“Login PI tests, measures, and alerts IT admins on availability and performance changes that affect desktop and application workflows like patient lookups and record updates, as well as latencies that impact end-user experience,” said Blair Parkhill, Director of Products, Login VSI. “Together with IGEL, we are bringing IoT to VDI, through the deployment of our deep application test technology to any location around the world, in a single click. Further, through the combined IGEL and Login VSI solution, organizations are gaining valuable insights on the status of the network and their entire VDI configuration.”

The IGEL and Login VSI solution is currently available to IGEL OS customers as a custom partition, with plans to integrate the solution into the IGEL OS firmware in a future release.

One common infrastructure challenge arises with virtual private networks (VPNs).

However, with the rise in mobile, IoT, multi- and hybrid-cloud, as well as edge computing, traditional enterprise perimeters are extending and becoming blurred ...

The configuration management database (CMDB), along with its more federated companion, the configuration management system (CMS), has been bathed in a deluge of negative opinions from all fronts — industry experts, vendors, and IT professionals. But from what recent EMA research on analytics, ITSM performance and other areas is indicating, those negative views seem to be missing out on a real undercurrent of truth — that CMDB/CMS alignments, whatever their defects, strongly skew to success in terms of overall IT progressiveness and effectiveness ...

It's been all over the news the last few months. After two fatal crashes, Boeing was forced to ground its 737. The doomed model is now undergoing extensive testing to get it back into service and production. Large organizations often tell stakeholders that even though all software goes through extensive testing, this type of thing “just happens.” But that is exactly the problem. While the human component of application development and testing won't go away, it can be eased and supplemented by far more efficient and automated methods to proactively determine software health and identify flaws ...
