So far, Project Virtual Reality check has been a massive undertaking, which generated much interest over the years. However, one thing was clear: many discussions in the VDI and SBC space are not just about performance best practices and product comparisons.
With so many VDI and SBC deployments out there, the differences are huge. It is only logical to wonder how these real-world VDI and SBC environments are used and how they are built, especially when you consider how the VDI/SBC market is quickly changing. Since it's driven as much by innovation as it is by marketing campaigns, there is a clear need to better understand what is really out there.
As a result, we (Ruben Spruijt and I) decided to boot up the first edition of the Project Virtual Reality Check “State of the VDI and SBC union” survey. It was our aim to ask all the relevant questions, both functional and technical. These questions range from “What are the most important design goals set for this environment”, to “Which storage is used”, to “How are the VM’s configured”.
The questions are comprehensive, and relevant to everyone in building VDI and SBC environments. The aim of Project VRC is to repeat the survey at least once a year. This will allow us to see how our industry is changing in practice. The success of the survey will be determined by the amount of the responses, but also the quality of these responses. This led us to the conclusion that we should stay away from giving away iPad’s or other price draws for survey participants. Instead, we opted for the following strategy: only survey participants will exclusive receive the complete report including all results. Of course Project VRC will present and publish the findings of the survey publicly, but the full report with all results is only available when you actually participate.
The survey will be closed on the 31st of October this year. The complete survey report with all data will be sent to all participants exclusively when the first public summary reports are published.
We really hope you want to participate and enjoy the first official Project VRC “State of the VDI and SBC union” survey!
