Re: Visibility into performance is critical for VDI
Absolutely, @Tyson. Seattle Children's wanted to expand its VDI for all the benefits virtualization brings. But it realized it couldn't do so, unless it resolved the problems it was having. After all, bad enough to have issues with VDIs in any area of a hospital -- but absolutely impossible to consider in the ICU. Now it has addressed that issue, the hospital can continue its VDI rollout, benefiting the organization, its IT department, and end-users.

Visibility into performance is critical for VDI
VDI performance is especially critical in healthcare where caregivers may log in to dozens of "workstations on wheels" (WOWs) during a shift. Kudos to Seattle Children's for taking care to see that VDI performance is reliably fast. That's hard to do especially as VDI deployments grow in scale. As the environment gets more complex, it can be difficult to track down the root cause of interrelated performance issues.
