Login VSI, the industry-leading software provider of 360° proactive visibility for virtual workspaces, announced the release of Login Enterprise 5.0, the latest version of its flagship product.
This release comes with highly anticipated new features – dashboards for cost and capacity tracking that offer predictive insights to help IT organizations control cost and optimize their virtualized desktop and application environments more effectively.
As the market for cloud-based desktops and hosted applications changes, concerns regarding cost management, now and in the future, have shifted to the top of the priority list for many organizations. For years, more visibility has been needed into the capacity and, more importantly, the cost of these environments as they change over time. The dashboards included in Login Enterprise 5.0 help fill this gap by enabling IT teams to track, trend, and monitor production deployments' cost, capacity, and performance over time as environments evolve.
"Understanding the costs associated with desktop and app virtualization, both on-premises and in the cloud, has always been challenging. Login VSI's benchmarking and proactive monitoring capabilities will help customers get accurate estimates–using data from their workloads–of their costs before deploying anything. This will allow them to make data-driven decisions based on cost and price-to-performance ratios while weighing out the benefits of cloud versus on-premises workloads," says Gabe Knuth, Senior Analyst at TechTarget's Enterprise Strategy Group.
Login VSI's mission is to enhance and extend visibility into virtual desktops and applications so IT teams can make wiser, more agile, and cost-effective decisions. The real-time insight provided by the new dashboards supports cost optimization and improves performance by enabling quick issue detection and offering optics into resource utilization.
According to John Vigeant, CEO of Login VSI, "With this major release of Login Enterprise 5.0, Login VSI is the only solution in the market that brings together proactive monitoring, cost optimization, and capacity planning for virtual desktops and apps. This is the very first time in the end-user computing space that VDI and DaaS teams can identify the optimal environment to run their virtual desktop workloads from a cost and performance perspective and measure end-user experience (EUX) to price, whether on-premises or in the cloud. Early customer deployments have already resulted in more than 40% realized savings in a single month of cloud PC spend."
As an established and respected industry leader, Login VSI partners with the world's top hardware and software vendors to ensure their joint customers have the best technology available.
"I am excited to see where Login Enterprise is going. This latest release will provide data-driven metrics for dashboards that fuel the key decision-makers and enable the EUC leaders to provide reporting and justification for their technology plans for the next 1 to 3 yrs. I am glad to be a part of something that will tremendously impact the market and how decisions are driven," says Jason Willis, Practice Principal Experience at Alchemy Technology Group.
This latest release of Login Enterprise will enable partners to strengthen their business cases, improve customer satisfaction, and maximize the value delivered.

Our Login Enterprise platform is 100% agentless and can be used in all major VDI and DaaS environments, including Citrix, VMware, and Microsoft. With 360° proactive visibility, IT teams can plan and maintain successful digital workplaces with less cost, fewer disruptions, and lower risk.

Avid® is today announcing the tech preview demo at NAB Show of Avid | Stream IO™, a new flexible software-based platform for production ingest and playout delivered through the convenience of subscription.
With a flexible architecture that can be configured to ingest or play out IP streams and SDI streams, Avid | Stream IO allows content producers to migrate from legacy workflows and on-premises deployment to cloud and IP workflows at their own pace.
The solution also offers flexible channel configurations, supporting popular video formats, codecs and resolutions, enabling media companies to leverage new and emerging technologies within their production workflows. Avid | Stream IO offers complete deployment flexibility, supporting both off-the-shelf certified hardware for on-premises studio environments and standard virtual machines in the cloud.
The new platform also allows media companies to increase efficiency by combining different ingest sources in a single configuration. Ideal for live entertainment and multi-camera productions, Avid | Stream IO supports all common production formats including SDI, Compressed IP streams - SRT / RTMP / NDI, with SMPTE 2110 due later this year. And as a next-generation product, Avid | Stream IO offers all the best capabilities of Avid’s proven hardware-based server solutions—AirSpeed® and FastServe®—while expanding support for emerging IP standards and higher-precision formats, such as 4K and HDR.
Tim Claman, Avid SVP and General Manager of Video & Media Solutions, explains, “We’re very excited to announce Avid | Stream IO, our next-gen production ingest and playout solution, designed to help our customers bring their proven end-to-end Avid workflow deployments into the future. With a flexible software architecture that supports deployment on-prem or in the cloud, Avid | Stream IO is configurable for both SDI and IP, and supports high-precision formats 1080P, UHD and HDR, all at a lower cost per channel than traditional hardware-based systems.”
Avid | Stream IO also supports Avid’s proven fast-turnaround workflows, including shot-listing, craft editing and logging—all while tightly integrating with Avid’s MediaCentral® production platform.
Claman concludes, “We believe Avid | Stream IO will help production teams accelerate their content creation pipelines, both now and in the future, by delivering unparalleled speed, flexible deployment, and adaptable support for media formats.”
Avid | Stream IO will be demonstrated at NAB Show booth N1221 (April 16-19, Las Vegas) and will be commercially available later this year.
