Editor's note

IT professionals running VDI deployments have a lot to worry about, but managing VDI users and keeping them happy is often their primary concern.

Lots of issues, including unexpected complexity and unanticipated costs, can stand in the way of a successful VDI deployment -- but nothing grinds things to a halt like unhappy users. One of the best ways to keep VDI users satisfied is to effectively manage their profiles and workspaces. If IT pros have control over those areas, it can go a long way toward improving the end-user experience.

Uncover what to look for in a user profile management tool and dive into the importance of VDI monitoring tools to ensure that performance stays up to snuff.

VDI monitoring tools can also help prevent problems from reoccurring or happening in the first place.
