Amsterdam, 17 January, 2013 - Project Virtual Reality Check (Project VRC) is pleased to announce the release of the long awaited 'Phase V' whitepaper which provides independent insights in the impact and best practices of various antivirus (AV) solutions on VDI performance.
So far, Project Virtual Reality Check has been a massive undertaking, which generated much interest over the years. However, one thing was clear, many discussions in the VDI and SBC space are not just about performance best practices and product comparisons.
With so many VDI and SBC deployments out there, the differences are huge. It is only logical to wonder, how these real-world VDI and SBC environments are used and how they are build. Especially the VDI/SBC market is quickly changing, driven by innovation, but also by marketing campaigns. Consequently, there is a clear need to better understand what is really out there.
Independent Research Project VRC: Phase IV describes pros and cons
De Meern / Amsterdam, 28 June 2011 – Today PQR and Login Consultants released Phase IV of Project ‘Virtual Reality Check’ (VRC). The whitepaper describes the impact and best practices of application virtualization on a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).
The primary goal of Project Virtual Reality Check phase IV is to investigate the overall scalability impact of Application Virtualization solutions within VDI. The three biggest and most commonly used vendors in the VDI market space are investigated: Citrix Application Streaming, Microsoft App-V and VMware ThinApp. These three solutions were compared in different streaming configurations. This whitepaper does a true deep dive on Application Virtualization impact within VDI.
More and more organizations are planning a move to VDI. Experience in many VDI projects has proven so far that the performance and sizing issues are still a major hurdle to overcome. Often, VDI results are disappointing because the VDI environment is not properly sized and tuned. In practice, storage remains the number one challenge in today’s VDI deployments.
