To deliver the best possible logon performance, Workspace Environment Management replaces commonly used Windows Group Policy Object objects, logon scripts, and preferences with an agent, which is deployed on each virtual machine or server. The agent is multi-threaded and applies changes to user environments only when required, ensuring that users always have access to their desktop as quickly as possible. Time consuming processes are handled out of sync with the initial logon process.

CPU and RAM optimization, involves real-time monitoring of the process running on each VM. When a process is detected to be monopolizing CPU resources (for a defined amount of time), Workspace Environment Management automatically reduces the priority of the process. When processes go idle, Workspace Environment Management automatically releases reduces the application’s RAM working set. These optimization techniques help reduce overall server load.
