Wouldn't it be nice to be able to know with certainty the performance footprint impact of an application before deploying it into a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)? This way, you could decide whether it is suitable or not based on data rather than gut feel. However, most IT teams do not have this option.
There are several reasons for that. First, in most scenarios, this means yet another test and additional testing tools, which takes a long time and requires budget. Secondly, dedicated VDI performance testing teams don't perform these tests on the business apps because they don't have the specific knowledge of the products that they're testing.
Today, I am going to show you a new and exciting way of how you can collect the performance metrics in the background while the real users are testing their business apps. This way, you gain a realistic understanding of the impact your application will have on your VDI environment.
