So I thought it might be interesting to see the difference Workspace Environment Management has on the logon experience with VDI.
Note: Both of these examples mapped 5 drives, mapped 3 printers, used a 500MB roaming profile and executed a single logon script that queried a single AD Group.
Improving logon time is a fun topic because the experience is oftentimes so bad. I heard (and I’ve complained) about the horrible experience. On the opposite side, I’ve also heard many others bragging about how fast their logon times are. What’s your logon time? Excited to share or afraid to say?
I’ve been able to experience the results of implementing Workspace Environment Management into a Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop environment. I was easily able to obtain at least a 50% reduction in logon duration.
In 2012, I started my pursuit of astrophotography. Let’s just say the results of M42 – The Orion Nebula were not very impressive.
Over the course of 5 years, I continued to try out new techniques and learned a lot about signal-to-noise ratios, imaging histograms, Bahtinov masks and more. I continued striving for better results and am glad to say, the my work is finally showing positive results.
All of the effort is starting to show some very good results.
I find that astrophotography gives people a “Wow” feeling; so, let’s change topics to something that creates the opposite feeling: Logon Time.
