Monitoring a server involves watching the performance of a single physical or virtual machine. Conversely, VDI almost always consists of multiple servers working together. As such, one of the big VDI monitoring challenges is scalability: Admins must simultaneously monitor the performance of each of the servers that plays a role in VDI. The second factor that complicates VDI monitoring is translating the raw performance metrics into something meaningful.

Now, imagine a VDI server clocks in with an excessively high CPU utilization value. What does it mean for the end-user experience? It is really difficult to say for sure. The user might suffer severe performance problems as a result of insufficient CPU resources.

On the other hand, depending on where the high CPU utilization occurs within the VDI architecture, the end user might be completely unaffected. In some cases, admins can apply standard server-level performance monitoring techniques to VDI deployments. This is especially true for very small VDI deployments. As the VDI deployment size increases, however, it becomes increasingly impractical to rely on standard performance monitoring techniques. It is far more effective to adopt a monitoring application specifically designed for VDI.

One way VDI monitoring software can determine the underlying cause of performance problems is to look at the similarities and differences between user sessions. VDI performance monitoring tends to be more complex than standard server performance monitoring. Several vendors, including Citrix and VMware, offer VDI-specific monitoring tools to help administrators quantify the end-user experience and quickly respond to problematic conditions.

VDI: The most secure environment for hybrid working

Today is Data Privacy Day. The purpose of this date is to raise awareness and promote privacy and data protection best practices. It was initiated by the European Commission, the Council of Europe, and the Data Protection authorities of the European Union’s member states. Their main goal was to drive attention to the importance of privacy, user data protection, and compliance of the General Data Protection Regulation (RGPD). It is a regulation characterized by significant fines for non-compliance since its implementation in 2018.

How to avoid issues with virtual machines

Virtualization comes with a wide range of benefits for organizations. It helps cut IT costs and reduces downtime while increasing efficiency and productivity. It also increases the resiliency of networks, primarily when disasters occur, and promotes more green-friendly operations.

However, using virtual machines also comes with a set of downsides. Information security may get compromised, workloads mixed up, separation duties lost, among other issues. It is vital to know how you can get over these problems, and that’s what this article will discuss.

Let’s get started.
