Tim Mangan has updated his perceived performance whitepaper. Recommended reading.
Today I posted a new whitepaper associated with the Perceived Performance presentation I made at BriForum London yesterday. We had a great session with a diverse eupoean crowd in attendance.I wish I had another name for this than a “white paper”, because most of what we see in white papers today are just blatant product pitches with a technical description. This is more of the traditional white paper (although with a few color illustrations) that just talks about technology.
Perceived Performance is the term I use for a different way of looking at performance of computing systems, looking at it from the end user perspective. In this paper, I update the original concepts for Perceived Performance that I described in the 2003 and 2005 versions of the whitepaper to look at performance in VDI scenarios today, with some thoghts to how cloud computing affects thsi again in the future.
