VDI Drones

Benchmark software for large computer environments

Synthetic load generating for a large number of computers or servers

Do you want to benchmark a large number of computers or server?

VDI Drones is a Windows Forms application and lets you specify and start a CPU, Memory and Disk load on multiple machines at once. This is especially suited for benchmarking a large group of virtual machines under a hypervisor in VDI/SBC/DaaS situations. You can specify precisely how heavy the load should be in terms of threads, CPU, memory and disk. 

Use cases

  • Verification of new infrastructure.
  • Measure impact of changes.
  • Testing of hotfixes and service packs, like Meltdown and Spectre.
  • Burn-in testing of new hardware.


  • Enables load generation on a large number of machines.
  • Easy to use GUI, no scripting skills needed.
  • No need to setup hundreds of user accounts.
  • Specify the workload in detail, in terms of threads, CPU, Memory and Disk I/O.
  • Integrates with your Microsoft Active Directory.
  • Works on all major hypervisors: VMware, Hyper-V, XenServer, Nutanix and Microsoft. Azure.
  • Competitively priced licensing model.
  • Available as a portable .exe, installation not required.
  • No client side software installation required.
  • Intelligently designed to use multiple CPU cores.
  • Able to start around 75 drones/machines per minute, e.g. starting 1000 drones takes around 15 minutes.
