In January 2013 we released, with your input, the first VRC community "state of the VDI and SBC union” community survey (download here). Over 1000 people participated. The results of this independent and truly unique survey have provided many new insights into the usage of desktop virtualization around the world.
You might have seen Frank Anderson’s take on the performance impact of Office 2013. This article inspired Project VRC to perform additional investigations in Office's performance impact and best practices. As a result we are publishing today a new whitepaper: Project Virtual Reality Check - Phase VI - Impact of Microsoft Office on VDI.
New Project VRC research tests relative impact of Office 2013 against Office versions 2007 and 2010
Madrid - Amsterdam, June 26, 2013 – Today, at TechEd Europe 2013 in Madrid Spain, Project Virtual Reality Check (Project VRC) announced the release of a new white paper about the relative impact of Microsoft Office on the performance of VDI based user environments.
Amsterdam / De Meern, 25 March, 2013 - Project Virtual Reality Check (VRC), an initiative of Login Consultants and PQR, has recently published a new study: State of the VDI and SBC Union 2013.

Jeroen and I are pleased to announce the release of the long awaited 'Phase V' whitepaper which gives unbiased and independent insights in the impact and best practices of various antivirus solutions on VDI. We truly believe we have interesting new content and many new insights which is needed for every successful VDI project. The desktop virtualization industry is maturing: we learned about storage, we learned how to tune the Windows desktop and hypervisor for performance and know how to create scalable VDI solutions. Interestingly, once everything is up and running, in many VDI deployments one piece of the performance pie is still overlooked: the antivirus solution.
