Wow! That’s fast. That is the reaction users should have when they log onto their virtual desktop. I’ve heard many talk about how slow or fast their logons are, but many times we tend to exaggerate. I’ve discussed this topic before in two recent blogs: Improving logon time with Workspace Environment Management How does Workspace Environment Management work 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 … Continue reading Achieving fast logon times
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.
I understand the why.
I want to now understand the how.
Let’s first examine the Windows logon process.
Always trying to get better.
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.
