A new white paper has been released by Project VRC which is all about the Impact of Microsoft App-V 5.0. This white paper contains detailed performance data which can be applied to diverse App-V infrastructures. If you are using Microsoft App-V 5.0, this white paper is a must read. In this blog post I want to explain why you should read this white paper.
When migrating to a newer operating system will the App-V publishing time be different? When publishing times are important you don’t want to be surprised with increasing times. With the release of Windows 10 Technical Preview I was wondering if there is a difference in publishing times with Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. In this blog post I will share the result I collected in this research.
I’m proud to announce a new App-V tool called GAP-IT which stand for “Get App-V Publishing Times”. GAP-IT can collect App-V publishing times in your environment and generate a Microsoft Excel report.
The report contains publishing times of individual packages, the percentage of published packages and the average publishing times. This is valuable information and can be used to verify if App-V publishing times are taking too long and if optimization is needed.
At VMworld 2014 in San Francisco Login VSI announced a new product. This product is in beta and is going by the project name Login VUM. Login VUM stands for Login Virtual Monitoring and it is a monitoring product which will focus on the user experience in hosted desktop environments. Login VUM is not designed to replace other monitoring product but instead it will integrate with larger monitor solutions like Splunk or SCOM.
Login VSI released the new version 4.1 which contains new realistic workloads with an improved VSImax calculation. Also a brand new feature is added to import external performance data and overlay this with the VSImax chart. This can help understanding the VSImax chart and activities that happen during the performance test. In this blog post I will show the external data in the Login VSI 4.1 analyzer.
