HOW TO REDUCE YOUR LOGON TIMES 
FROM 3 MINUTES TO 30 SECONDS
When I was a Virtualization Consultant, I conducted projects all over the world.
I spent tons of time on the phone with Technical Support. 
Eventually I discovered ControlUp, which saved me HOURS of troubleshooting. 
It helped me identify root causes to problems SO much faster. 
Now we help people with these same problems all over the world.

Parentix - Instantly Saved 750GB of RAM
and Reduced 95% of Disk Space Incidents

Quotes:
"ControlUp has been a lifesaver for Parentix. It has saved us money, stress, and, most importantly, time! We couldn’t be happier with the platform."
-Marcel Korbee, Cloud Ops Engineer at Parentix

"We were able to save more than 4 hours of help desk time each week; a fantastic ROI!"

Story:
Parentix—a cloud solution provider for SMEs—specializes in Exact and Microsoft, providing customers the safest and most reliable cloud experience while working with Exact Software

The Service Desk, Operations, and Delivery divisions maintain about 1400 Windows Servers, ranging from Windows 2012 to Windows 2019. They manage several thousand user sessions a day based on Citrix Virtual Apps & Desktops on Windows RDSH.

They were looking for a tool that would not only help us maintain these systems, but also help us to proactively monitor issues that could impact our customers' user sessions.

Used Microsoft SCOM, which helped a great deal, but did not give us the flexibility we needed. SCOM is a complex program that requires skilled engineers to maintain. They had to perform actions manually, which cost time and resources. 

In days after installing ControlUp, they solved long login duration for users with the analysis and scripts that ControlUp provides. They can now detect problems simply by looking at the ControlUp Console.

They also found they could reduce memory and CPUs with the ControlUp Insights’ “Sizing Recommendations,” which instantly saved them 750 GB of RAM assigned—but not used—by servers.

Using ControlUp Since: 2019

Before
  • 40+ disk incidents per week
  • Extra engineers for SCOM
  • Required Senior Engineers
  • Long troubleshooting cycles
  • Difficult root cause analysis
After
  • <4 disk incidents per week
  • Saved 100s of man-hours
  • Junior engineers handle advanced tasks through UI
  • Easier root cause analysis

eHealth

Story:
eHealth New South Wales (NSW) is part of Australia's Ministry of Health, the largest public health system in Australia. 

eHealth had tons of monitoring and alerts set up with different tools, but none provided useful information. "They all have dashboards and pretty, flashing lights, but at the end of the day, that’s meaningless,” Mahnkopf says. “These things provide no context as to how the end-user is actually working.”

Quotes:
“We had no confidence in the tools we were using,” Mahnkopf says. It wasn't in realtime and there was no way to check the validity of the info. 
“ControlUp gives us live, tactical information. It’s valuable, it’s usable, and it’s relevant,”

"[ControlUp has] the fastest lifecycle I’ve ever seen! When we make a suggestion for an improvement, you guys actually make it happen, and usually in just a couple of weeks. You don’t get that with other vendors,” says Noel. “ControlUp gives us confidence.”

“ControlUp has become our go-to information provider, and we’ve got buy-in across the organization. Now, when people want to know something,” Mahnkopf says, “They ask, ‘Well, what does ControlUp say?’” eHealth says the platform sells itself.
“ControlUp allows us to bypass egos and external influences and just see the raw information. There’s no ego in ControlUp; it’s just information, unvarnished by humans,” says Noel Mahnkopf of eHealth.

How to Reduce Logon Times from 3 Minutes to 30 Seconds

Step 1: Fix Slow Logons Using Built-in Scripts

The above video shows you the first step to identify what's causing your slow logons. It could be a GPO or a Script that is creating all that frustration for your users. Now you'll know! 

To do this, we generate a step-by-step breakdown of the login process. 
Once you know what's causing slowness, you isolate the problem!

Old Way

New Way

  • MANUAL Troubleshooting
  • HISTORIC or DATED information 
  • Self-reporting from different departments
  • ​Guess which GPOs are being applied
  • Difficult root cause analysis
  • Identify every step of the logon process AND the duration of each step
  • REAL-TIME ANALYTICS to understand your CURRENT service problems
  • Centralize and automate troubleshooting

Old Result

  • High level of manual error
  • Dated information is not useful
  • Incorrect or BIASED REPORTING from departments
  • Apply the wrong GPOs
  • Waste more time using the wrong tools

New Result

  • Understand immediately what's causing slow logons
  • REAL-TIME ANALYTICS to understand your CURRENT service problems
  • REDUCE time spent TROUBLESHOOTING by 5x

Using the right tools and scripts, you can identify the step-by-step process in the user logon.
You'll know where the delays are coming from.
You'll be able to troubleshoot and remediate faster.

Step 2: How to Automate VDI Operations to 
Reduce Administration Costs

See how to automate those annoyingly repetitive desktop operations below:

Old Way

  • Manually perform tasks 
  • Deploy ONE desktop or user group at a time

New Way

  • Use ControlUp Automation to simplify daily tasks

Old Result

  • Slow deployment
  • Human error
  • Inconsistencies across environment
  • Manual configuration required

New Result

  • Reduce time spent on daily manual updates 
  • Reduce human error
  • Maintain consistency
  • Speed up deployment tasks

Step 3: Setup Real-Time Analytics

Old Way

New Way

  • Data is old
  • Data is incorrect
  • Deploy ONE desktop / user group at a time
  • Need to run network traces and other manual tools
  • REAL-TIME Analytics so you can understand your true service problems
  • ACCURATE DATA

Old Result

  • Retroactive and relies on historic info
  • Dependent on self-reporting from different depts.
  • Visibility is poor
  • Good decision making is difficult
  • Wasted time and resources

New Result

  • Understand environment health in REAL-TIME
  • Minimize guesswork
  • Save 100s of hours in troubleshooting time
