Performance Enhancement Solutions
Solutions designed to optimize the performance and management of CPU and memory in virtualized environments.
Optimize CPU Performance
A key consideration when designing and building remote desktop and application environments is sizing the CPU requirements for the environment ensuring optimal performance levels. Performance needs to be as good as, if not better, than those in the physical world, otherwise your remote solution will not succeed. Although you can size CPU resources for the overall user requirements, you will still find that there are applications that ‘misbehave’ and will consume all of the available resources, resulting in a poor user experience. ThinScale’s ThreadLocker solution allows IT to intelligently manage CPU resources to ensure that individual users and applications don’t consume all the available resources and impact other users.
Manage Storage IO
Another consideration when designing and building remote desktop and application delivery environments is around sizing the storage requirements, but not from a capacity perspective. As most virtual desktops will be built on demand using some form of snapshotting or creation services, then the performance of the storage becomes the critical component. The storage IO will directly impact the end user experience as it could delay login time and the time it takes for the desktop or applications to become useable. With ThinScale’s ThinIO intelligent disk I/O solution, IOPS during boot is reduced by up to 80%. This has a positive impact on the end user experience, but also allows greater desktop density, leading to lower costs.
ThinScale’s ThreadLocker solution allows IT to intelligently manage CPU resources to ensure that individual users and applications don’t consume all the available resources and impact other users.
ThreadLocker Features & Benefits
- Enhance end user experience by ensuring end users have the appropriate resource levels available
- Increased resource utilization helping reduce the overall cost of infrastructure
- Advanced reporting and analytics capabilities shows you exactly where resources are being consumed
ThinIO is an intelligent software-define storage solution that can instantly deliver storage resources for any application more efficiently using existing data center infrastructure, eliminating the need to purchase expensive SAN, NAS, and all-flash storage arrays just to deliver desktop computing
ThinIO Features & Benefits
- Faster end user login times
- Software defined means less hardware requirements
- Reduce CapEx & OpEx while increasing ROI
”With ThreadLocker we have been able to control the amount of CPU threads per server Excel can consume, this allows for a greater user density and in turn a reduced per seat cost. We love how easy ThreadLocker is to setup, using our software deployment services we push the agent with configuration and it’s ready and controlling CPU threads in seconds. Today we continue to scale our environment, ThreadLocker is now a crucial part of our service standard and we continue to find new ways it can help achieve our global business agility needs.”

“Ultimately ThinIO was successful beyond our expectations. We saw a 23% improvement in overall performance with significantly faster user logins. ThinIO allowed us to increase our user density, save on costs and ultimately delivered a much better user experience. ThinIO provided a much more cost effective solution allowing us to get a greater ROI on our current infrastructure and will ensure that we will continue to have a higher user density as our programme grows.”
