Project Virtual Reality Check (Project VRC) is pleased to announce the release of the long awaited ‘Phase V’ whitepaper which gives unbiased and independent insights in the impact and best practices of various antivirus solutions on VDI.

We truly believe we have interesting new content and many new insights which is needed for every successful VDI project. The desktop virtualization industry is maturing: we learned about storage, we learned how to tune the Windows desktop and hypervisor for performance and know how to create scalable VDI solutions. Interestingly, once everything is up and running, in many VDI deployments one piece of the performance pie is still overlooked: the antivirus solution.

The R&D project ‘Virtual Reality Check’ (VRC) was started in early 2009 by the Dutch IT companies PQR ( and Login Consultants ( and focuses on research in the desktop virtualization market. Several white papers were published about the performance and best practices of different hypervisors, application virtualization solutions and Windows Operating Systems in server hosted desktop solutions.

All Project VRC tests are performed with Login VSI (, the industry standard benchmarking tool for VDI. This software tool simulates typical user workloads to objectively test the performance of VDI and Server Based Computing environments. The full test methodology is described in the white paper.

This and all other Project VRC white papers can be downloaded for free at To keep up-to-date with the latest developments you can follow Project VRC on Twitter @ProjectVRC.
