User Experience is #1 Concern for Citrix & Desktop Migration


Over 1,000 registrations for our live webinar “Citrix and Desktop Migration Success – The 3 Secrets to User Satisfaction and ROI” suggest that a lot of organizations are struggling (or at least concerned) with Citrix and desktop migration success [watch the on-demand webinar now].

We asked the webinar attendees about their most pressing performance challenges regarding migration of Citrix and Desktop environments, and here are the results:

Migration

 

With over 80 percent of responses, user experience is by far the number one concern. And whether you are migrating from Citrix XenApp 4.5 to 6.5 or from 6.5 to 7.5, or you are virtualizing your desktops as part of your Windows XP to Windows 7/8 migration project, performance is obviously a key priority. Users will expect the same or better performance after the migration as they had before the migration. When performance problems occur, the migration project is always blamed first.

Watch the webinar now to learn about the latest best practices for making your Citrix and desktop migrations successful:

  • Transform your Citrix and desktop environments successfully without project delays or cost overruns
  • Deliver superior end-user experience, simplify management, and reduce cost – before, during and after migration
  • Assure user satisfaction by pre-emptively detecting and resolving performance issues – before users are impacted
  • Utilize next-gen management solutions to accelerate troubleshooting and identify the true root-cause of problems (is it the Network? Database? Application? Citrix? Virtual platform? Storage?)
  • Ensure maximum ROI by right-sizing IT infrastructure using powerful analytics & reporting

What Virtualization Platform Are You Using for Citrix XenDesktop?


We asked the members of the LinkedIn group “Citrix Professionals” what virtualization platform they are using for their XenDesktop environment. Are 80% of XenDesktop deployments really on Hyper-V (as mentioned during the keynote address at Synergy Anaheim)?

According to our Citrix group members, a majority of 53% deploy XenDesktop on VMware vSphere, followed by Citrix XenServer with 35%. Microsoft Hyper-V is used by 10% of respondents.

Here are the details:

Performance and User Experience Issues Top VDI Concerns


Our most recent webinar “VDI Performance Assessment – Moving Desktop Virtualization from Test to Best” (download slides) attracted over 900 (!) registrations to learn how organizations can overcome challenges regarding scaling their VDI initiatives or moving desktop virtualization from pilot to production.

We asked the attendees “What is your biggest VDI pain?”

Here are the responses:

Not surprisingly, 60% of attendees selected performance and user acceptance as the biggest problems preventing VDI success. So, in case you were wondering, you are not alone in searching for ways to overcome VDI performance, scalability and cost control challenges.

eG Innovations can help you overcome your VDI challenges with the industry’s first end-to-end VDI performance assessment service that provides an in-depth assessment of your entire VDI environment – from the desktop to the datacenter. This assessment will help you quickly identify and remove performance bottlenecks, so you can deliver user satisfaction, scalability and cost control.

VDI Performance Assessment – Moving Desktop Virtualization from Test to Best


We would like to invite you to watch the webinar “VDI Performance Assessment – Moving Desktop Virtualization from Test to Best” – now available on demand: http://www.eginnovations.com/vdi-assessment/demo/

Did you know that 50 percent of all desktop virtualization initiatives stall or fail because of unacceptable end user performance and cost overruns? Without a methodical approach to performance, end user satisfaction and cost control, VDI project managers are basically flipping a coin on the success of their VDI initiative.

To manage risk and readiness in the early stages of VDI adoption, companies focused on assessing desktops alone. Now that companies are rolling out large scale VDI environments to users, the focus is shifting to in-depth, end-to-end VDI performance assessments of the entire VDI production environment to identify and remove performance bottlenecks, and make your virtual desktop initiative a success by delivering user satisfaction, scalability, and cost control.

To address the performance and ROI barriers to widespread VDI adoption, eG Innovations just launched at Citrix Synergy a new VDI performance assessment service eG Perform to deliver:

  • Actionable insight and guidance to quickly diagnose and resolve performance bottlenecks, and deliver on the promise of exceptional performance, user productivity, and ROI;
  • Complete end-to-end performance visibility and diagnosis across every tier, every layer of the virtual desktop service – Citrix, VMware, Network, Active Directory, Storage, Applications – so you know what’s working and what’s not; and,
  • Detailed reports and powerful analytics to right-size and optimize the virtual desktop infrastructure and increase ROI, complete with actionable insight into hardware bottlenecks, top users, top apps, critical dependencies, etc.

Watch the webinar “VDI Performance Assessment – Moving Desktop Virtualization from Test to Best” and learn how a VDI performance assessment can help you baseline your current VDI performance, understand critical bottlenecks, and identify how to optimize your virtual desktop infrastructure for scalability, cost efficiency and peak performance.

eG Introduces VDI Performance Assessment Service – Move VDI Deployments from Test to Best


There is to a growing trend where VDI pilots go well until virtual desktops are being rolled out in production environments with thousands of users, when unexpected performance and cost overrun problems start to occur. Users start to complain about sluggish applications and ask for their laptops back.

Attempts at fixing these performance problems by using traditional virtual desktop planning tools and by throwing more hardware at the problem quickly cause cost overruns, kill ROI and typically don’t resolve the performance issue.

We are proud to announce a new groundbreaking VDI performance assessment service, eG Perform™, to help companies pre-empt and overcome virtual desktop performance issues so they can deliver on the desktop virtualization promise of flexibility, scalability and end-user satisfaction. eG Perform fills a huge gap in the market by identifying VDI bottlenecks and helping companies restore performance and deliver on the promise of desktop virtualization.

In the early stages of VDI deployment, focus was on desktop virtualization viability. Pre-deployment assessments were used to determine the virtualization readiness of physical desktops. As the technology matured, the focus is shifting to performance assurance, right sizing and optimization of large scale deployments. Consequently, performance assessment has had to evolve from just focusing on physical desktops to a complete analysis of the virtual desktop infrastructure.

VDI Performance Assessment Overview

eG’s new VDI performance assessment service leverages eG Innovations’ patented and award-winning cloud-based performance assurance platform that delivers pre-emptive, automated, and integrated performance assurance for dynamic IT environments. eG Perform deploys a unique methodology and patented technology to provide VDI project managers with:

  • Actionable insight and guidance to quickly diagnose and resolve performance bottlenecks, and deliver on the promise of exceptional performance, user productivity, and ROI;
  • Complete end-to-end performance visibility and diagnosis across every tier, every layer of the virtual desktop service – Citrix, VMware, Network, Active Directory, Storage, Applications – so you know what’s working and what’s not; and,
  • Detailed reports and powerful analytics to right-size and optimize the virtual desktop infrastructure and increase ROI, complete with actionable insight into hardware bottlenecks, top users, top apps, critical dependencies, etc.

Integrated with eG’s on-demand cloud-based performance assurance platform eG-on-Tap, the eG Perform assessment service allows enterprises to baseline their current VDI performance, understand critical bottlenecks, and identify how they can optimize their virtual desktop infrastructure for peak performance and cost efficiency.

Free Assessment Offer

Enterprises interested in trying out the service risk-free can get a complete eG Perform analysis for up to five servers free of charge for a three-week period. The service will deliver a comprehensive report documenting the current performance of the virtual desktop infrastructure complete with identified performance bottlenecks and areas for optimization.
