All easily accessible from your home or office. You will also get direct links to research reports and other materials presented during the event.



About this Event

Login VSI is the industry standard in VDI performance testing. Optimizing performance and availability of VDI and other centralized Windows environments, has been our specialty for many years.

We have built extensive knowledge and experience by working closely with leading IT vendors in their R&D labs, and by executing many projects at large end-user organizations. Projects where a few days of VDI tuning resulted in a $1.3 million hardware savings (from $2.3 million to $1 million) without losing any performance, or where we increased the user density from 2,900 users to 4,400 users on the same hardware infrastructure (>$2.1 million value).

To share all we learned in the past 10 years, we created the VDI Performance Summit. The EMEA event in this series was organized on January 29 in Amsterdam. To allow everybody in the Americas interested in this topic to join the US event, we decided to make it 100% virtual. This way it is easy for all to participate.

All content presented at the conference will be entirely focused on the performance and tuning of VDI and SBC environments. Next to our own experts, speakers will include performance specialists from leading VDI vendors and specialized consulting firms. In addition to these expert sessions, there will be real use cases from customers, and brand-new VDI performance related market data from independent research organization VDIlikeaPRO.

During the breaks you will be able to chat with VDI experts and virtually meet vendors that are active in the VDI space. All sponsoring vendors are asked to present their hardware or software solutions that may offer a contribution to VDI performance.

To make this event not only educational but also fun, we will be giving out nice prizes and have also asked all sponsors to organize raffles with cool gifts.
