eG Innovations showcases world's only automated performance assurance solution for virtualized Citrix XenApp environments

Proactively discover, diagnose and resolve service performance issues and right-size virtualized XenApp deployments

ISELIN, N.J., May 3, 2012 – eG Innovations, the award-winning provider of automated performance management solutions for virtual, cloud and physical IT infrastructures, announced today that it will be showcasing the world’s only automated performance assurance solution for virtualized Citrix XenApp environments, eG Enterprise, at Citrix Synergy 2012 in San Francisco, May 9 – 11, 2012 in Booth # 513.

As companies look to successfully migrate to Citrix XenApp 6.5, they are increasingly taking advantage of virtualization platforms such as Citrix XenServer, VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V to increase efficiency, enhance flexibility, and reduce hardware cost of XenApp server farms. However, virtualization introduces new and dynamic inter-dependencies because multiple applications running on virtual machines share the same hardware. This increased complexity makes managing performance and user experience of virtualized XenApp infrastructures much more challenging, costly and time-consuming.

While there are some products, like Citrix EdgeSight, which are focused on the performance of the Citrix XenApp servers, and several others that are focused on management of virtual infrastructures, there is very little integration of management between the virtual and physical layers from the desktop to the datacenter. A lot of manual analysis and a great deal of expertise is required to monitor and troubleshoot virtual XenApp infrastructures. Manual investigation, analysis and correlation of the performance of every layer and every tier of the infrastructure supporting the XenApp service is very time consuming, wastes valuable technical resources and leads to user dissatisfaction and interrupted business processes.

“Virtualized XenApp deployments can become quite complex, and many companies fly blind without complete performance visibility into the components of their environment and the dynamic inter-dependencies,” said Srinivas Ramanathan, founder and CEO, eG Innovations. “Yesterday’s reactive, manual and fragmented approach to performance management severely limits performance visibility and is no longer sufficient for today’s dynamic IT environments. eG Innovations solves this big challenge by delivering pre-emptive, automated and integrated performance assurance for today’s dynamic, mission-critical Citrix XenApp environments.”

“Today’s monitoring and performance management tools need to work in virtualized environments,” added Karin Kelley, analyst, Infrastructure Management, 451 Research. “By combining its existing monitoring and diagnostics smarts with an automated, virtualization-aware root-cause diagnosis engine, eG Enterprise can simplify and make XenApp deployments perform more efficiently."

eG Enterprise is an ideal solution that allows enterprises virtualizing Citrix XenApp to:

  • Get Complete 360-degree performance visibility and automated performance correlation across every tier, every layer – network, storage, virtualization, application and database;
  • Automate and accelerate discovery, diagnosis and resolution of XenApp service performance issues;
  • Pre-emptively detect and resolve performance issues before users notice;
  • Identify bottlenecks and right-size your XenApp infrastructure with powerful reporting and analytics for maximum ROI;
  • Automatically correlate all performance events from both the physical and virtual tiers of your XenApp Service and auto-diagnose the cause of any performance problem;
  • Discover trends and details of user sessions and user/application resource consumption for effective workload planning and infrastructure management to reduce cost.

eG Enterprise enables companies to ensure XenApp virtualization success by delivering on the promise of exceptional performance, flexibility and ROI.
