Testimonials | VIEW MORE

This product makes AVD easy to manage with all its robust features. It also clearly shows you everything it is doing step by step so you can see how the “sausage is made”. You get the added benefit of being able to pull logs from with the GUI. Most of all it saves you money. The support team is also incredible – fast, responsive and knowledgeable.

Worth every penny! 

Started with “normal” AVD and it was very cumbersome to setup and difficult to manage natively in Azure. We were able to set it up and get test AVD virtuals running in a fraction of the time we wasted without it. If you’re planning to setup and use a functional AVD environment and you skip Nerdio, you’ll be doing it wrong. Their support is great and the product works well, super impressed.

No Other Way to Do AVD

In about 2 hours, we went from no Azure presence to deployed Workstations for remote users in both US and India. If you buy any tools for Azure Virtual Desktop – make it this one. And now.

One word - Awesome

Nerdio has taken the majority of the complexity out of deploying AVD and the management is outstanding. The support is second to none and they are an amazing partner!

Image versioning

Maintain multiple version of a desktop image by retaining old versions during image updates. These version can be easily used to deploy session hosts in the future.

Image staging and testing automation

Modify and update production images and test them without affecting current production host pools that use these images. When updating an image, select for the new version to be created in “staged” mode. Designated test host pools can start using and testing this image right away, but production host pools will only begin using it when it is activated after testing and validation. The end-to-end process of image update, user acceptance testing, and deployment into production can be fully automated. Learn More

Automatically re-image used hosts in host pool when all users log off

Ensure that users always log into a pristine, image-based session host by refreshing (re-imaging) used VMs after users log off. In single-user pooled scenarios, desktops will be automatically re-imaged when users log off. In multi-user pooled scenarios, session hosts will be re-imaged as soon as the last user logs off. This way, all hosts will be always kept up-to-date and in pristine state. Learn More

Automatically re-image hosts in host pool on a recurring schedule

Schedule a recurring update to Desktop Images and automatically re-image host pools on a pre-defined schedule. System and application updates can be automatically applied after hours without manual intervention. Learn More

Retain host VM name and IP during re-image

When session host VMs are re-imaged, the VM name, AD computer object, IP address and DNS host name remain the same. No need to update other systems when re-imaging host VMs since they appear identical to external systems before and after the re-image process. Learn More

Image update change log and reporting

Before “sealing” the image (i.e. running “set as image” task) document any changes that were made. A report can be generated to show these changes and who made them. Learn More

 

 Four scaling algorithms (CPU, average & available sessions, user-driven)

Dramatically reduce Azure compute and storage costs up to 75% by precisely matching the size of Azure infrastructure to the user demand at all times. Nerdio Manager provides 4 auto-scaling algorithms based on CPU usage, user sessions, and user-driven behaviors (RAM usage coming soon). Learn More

 VM Power Management

Start VMs when users need them and stop them automatically when no longer in use. VM power management reduces Azure compute costs up to 75%. Learn More

 VM just-in-time create/delete (burst)

Create new session host VMs on-the-fly, as needed, without keeping many VMs created and consuming storage costs by the OS disks. Newly created VMs are always fresh and based on the prestine image state. Add scripted actions to customize the VM provisioning process. When the VMs are now longer needed they can be automatically removed from the environment. A mix of “base capacity” (always created VMs) and “burst capacity” (just-in-time VMs) optimizes costs and user experience. Learn More

 Schedule & event-driven scaling

Auto-scale can start, stop, create, or delete session host VMs based on several auto-scale algorithms that take into account actual usage (e.g. CPU, current active sessions) and/or do so on a schedule to pre-stage capacity in expectation of users logging in. Learn More

 3 scale-in aggressiveness levels (high, medium, & low)

Balance between cost savings and end-user experience by setting one of three scale in aggressiveness levels that controls the type of hosts can be scaled in (stopped or removed). High aggressiveness provides the highest savings and will forcefully disconnect even active users after end of work hours. Medium will stop host with disconnected sessions. Low aggresiveness will only stop or remove hosts that has no user sessions. Learn More

 Multiple auto-scale schedules per host pool

Create multiple auto-scale pre-stage settings to ramp up host pool capacity during certain days of week and times of days. In education environments multiple schedules can be used to turn on VMs based on a pre-defined class schedule. Learn More

 VDI host pools (single-user pooled VMs) auto-scaling

Provide users with non-persistent, single-user pooled desktops that are used exclusively by a single user during the session then returned to the pool, optionally refreshed/re-imaged, and made available to others. This VDI host pool configuration provides significant savings as compared to permanently-assigned pesonal desktops. Learn More

 Spot VM instances

Save up to 90% on Azure VM compute costs while testing an AVD deployment by creating session hosts as Spot VMs. Not to be used in production scenarios as VMs can be unexpectedly “evicted”. Easily convert VMs from spot to pay-as-you-go and back to spot VMs with this scripted action. Learn More

 Reserved Instances analytics for auto-scale

Save up to additional 60% on the cost of Azure compute by using Reserved Instances in combination with auto-scaling. Nerdio Manager will analyze prior auto-scale behavior and recommend quantity of CPU core reservations to purchase to take advantage of RI savings. Learn More

 Auto-deallocate user stopped VMs

Host VMs shut down from inside Windows are in stopped, but not deallocated, state and continue to generate Azure compute costs. Nerdio Manager can automatically detect VMs in this state and deallocate them proactively. Learn More

 VM OS disk auto-convert to lower storage tier

Define “running” OS disk storage type (e.g. Premium or Standard SSD) and “stopped” OS disk storage type (e.g. Standard HDD). Auto-scale will change the OS disk to cheaper storage when it stopped and automatically change it to a more performance storage type when the VM is started. This results in up to 75% in OS disk storage savings when the VM is not running. Learn More

 Ephemeral OS disks

Save on OS disk storage costs and increase performance with Ephemeral OS disks that can be used for AVD session host VMs. Ephemeral OS disks are free and are stored on the Azure physical host’s local storage and are therefore faster. Learn More

 VM OS disk shrink to 64 GB and 32 GB

Reduce the size of an image VM’s OS disk from the default 128GB to 64GB (or 32GB). This reduces storage costs for session host VMs by requiring a smaller disk and allows for use of smaller VMs with ephemeral OS disks. Learn More

 Azure Files schedule, free space, & latency-based scaling

Ensure high performance of Azure Files at the lowest possible cost. The performance characteristics of Azure Files Premium are determined by the provisioned capacity quota. Storage auto-scale increases capacity quota in response to increased storage latency (or on a schedule), and decreases it when the extra performance is no longer needed to save on costs. Learn More

 Azure NetApp Files schedule, free space, & latency-based scaling

Ensure high performance of Azure NetApp Files at the lowest possible cost. The performance of an Azure NetApp Files volume is determined by the volume size, regardless of capacity actually used. Storage auto-scale increases the volume size during times of peak demand (e.g. log-on and log-off storms) and decreases it automatically when the extra boost in performance is no longer needed. This is done based on a schedule and/or in response to elevated IO latency. Storage auto-scale also automatically grows volume (and capacity pool) size when capacity reaches a pre-defined threshold ensuring that it never runs out of space. Learn More

 FSLogix profile compression

Shrink FSLogix VHD(X) by removing the “white space” from inside the profile container. This dramatically reducess FSLogix storage costs. Learn More

Log Analytics Workspace storage usage optimization

Customize data sampling frequency and retention settings for Log Analytics Workspaces used by Azure Monitor. Significantly reduce the storage costs from frequently polled performance data and unnecessary metrics. (Coming soon)

 Windows 10 & 11 optimization for higher user density

Automatically run Microsoft’s Windows 10 and Windows 11 virtual desktop optimization tool on session host VMs as they are created. This results in drastically improved performance and increased user-per-CPU density, which reduces total Azure compute costs. Learn More

This product makes AVD easy to manage with all its robust features. It also clearly shows you everything it is doing step by step so you can see how the “sausage is made”. You get the added benefit of being able to pull logs from with the GUI. Most of all it saves you money. The support team is also incredible – fast, responsive and knowledgeable.

Worth every penny! 

Started with “normal” AVD and it was very cumbersome to setup and difficult to manage natively in Azure. We were able to set it up and get test AVD virtuals running in a fraction of the time we wasted without it. If you’re planning to setup and use a functional AVD environment and you skip Nerdio, you’ll be doing it wrong. Their support is great and the product works well, super impressed.

No Other Way to Do AVD

In about 2 hours, we went from no Azure presence to deployed Workstations for remote users in both US and India. If you buy any tools for Azure Virtual Desktop – make it this one. And now.

One word - Awesome

Nerdio has taken the majority of the complexity out of deploying AVD and the management is outstanding. The support is second to none and they are an amazing partner!
