SysTrack Image Planner




Application Demand Analysis and Image Optimization

The lack of adequate planning tools greatly limits the VDI adoption rate. The complexity of the implementation and the need for change in many aspects of desktop delivery compound these limitations. Desktop pooling offers the potential for dramatic savings over assigned desktop models, including both administrative advantages and concurrency advantages.



SysTrack Image Planner (SysTrack IP) provides a blueprint for implementation of VDI desktop pools and golden images for non-VDI environments based on real user behavior and actual application license demand.

Use of SysTrack IP can dramatically reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) for users by minimizing application licensing and maintenance costs, reducing administrative overhead and leveraging efficiencies through concurrent use of desktop pools.

Analyzes Actual Application License Demand

SysTrack IP analyzes actual application license demand by tracking the use of application packages by users. Working at both the executable and package level, SysTrack IP analyzes needs and commonality of needs within a community, and designs application pools to minimize the cost of application software licensing.

SysTrack IP conducts compatibility assessment within applications for application virtualization, and adjusts desktop pool models to reflect least-cost designs that can take advantage of such streaming deployments. These designs provide tangible reductions in both CAPEX costs and OPEX administrative costs on an ongoing basis.

Models to Actual User Behavior

SysTrack IP tracks user behavior without impacting the environment. Automatically tracking both executable and related package usage, SysTrack IP determines through actual demand which applications are necessary to meet the needs of each user.

Using SysTrack IP, users may be grouped into communities, with the appropriate assignment of needed applications to each community such that license cost is minimized. The relationships between desktop pools are also examined, so that provisioning can be optimized and concurrency leveraged.

Analyzes Applications for Virtualization Compatibility

SysTrack IP also analyzes all applications for application virtualization compatibility. While most applications are suitable for application virtualization, some may have attributes that either preclude or complicate the packaging process.

SysTrack IP automatically reports on such limitations, eliminating much investigation and trial/error. Desktop pools are automatically optimized to account for applications to be delivered through application virtualization.
