Make smarter, more informed business decisions

Many organizations are today actively looking at refreshing their desktop estates. Server consolidation via virtualization and desktop virtualization is being considered as part of the refresh in order to regain some of the efficiencies of the mainframe era while retaining the productivity of the desktop environment, decreasing management costs and improving the efficiency of their desktop estate.

Successful refreshes or new deployments in VDIs require planning and a good, solid strategy. Testing should be part of that strategy to enable your business to maximize the benefits of the new system and to minimize risks.

Scapa TPP’s simple, repeatable tests ensure the performance of your system infrastructure in the following ways:

– Ensuring adequate capacity – right-size for your unique workload scenarios, working out user densities per server and discover the headroom available
– Safeguarding acceptable end-to-end response times and availability and making sure end user experience is comparable to your existing deployment solution
– Proving failover capability, overdriving the system to uncover its failure characteristics
– Identifying and removing bottlenecks before production rollout
– Benchmarking and validating vendor solutions to ascertain which are the right components (including server and storage systems) for your specific system requirements

All the data collected during a test is immediately available for analysis with Scapa TPP’s statistical console and customisable reporting functions.

With Scapa TPP for VDI, risks are minimized, profits maximized

Performance, scalability, capacity and continuity assurance are critical success factors in any business-critical virtual desktop application delivery mechanism. If a system does not perform or cope with an increase in demand, there are significant impacts on ROI. It may impact morale, service delivery and ultimately, the bottom line. Scapa TPP can perform end-to-end tests with any number of user clients and servers can be distributed as in real life deployments to help you avoid costly performance issues. To do this, scripts are executed on the server side of a session but performance data is collected on the client side. Scapa TPP for VDI guarantees test robustness and immediate visual analysis of the output.
