Goliath Technologies Announces New Paradigm in XenApp Monitoring

Philadelphia, PA, Nov 15, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- Goliath Technologies announced today that they have enhanced their market leading performance monitoring, analysis and reporting product to include out-of-the-box integration into the XenApp Server, SQL Server, Web Interface, Windows Infrastructure and Virtual Servers/Machines. While always easy to use, these new enhancements give Goliath Technologies a tremendous lead over other offerings that either don't provide this functionality or require months of programming time and expense to achieve it.

"Can you imagine how frustrating it must be to have the responsibility of determining the root cause of performance degradation, when you can't see all the potential infrastructure elements that might be causing the issue For the XenApp Administrator who hears the words 'Citrix is slow,' this is a reality" said Thomas Charlton, Chairman and CEO of Goliath Technologies. He continued, "the goal is a happy end user and the central challenge is that XenApp depends on networks, underlying physical or virtual servers, and other elements to deliver an acceptable user experience. Our product offers a lens into all of these components so that an administrator can determine casualty, remediate quickly, provide objective evidence of root cause and automate fix actions based on best practices thresholds." MonitorIT delivers comprehensive monitoring for XenApp Farms and its dependent infrastructure to truly isolate the root cause of problems when they occur, on the local network or in remote environments. Using the XenApp Session Dashboard and Health Check, administrators can finally validate the XenApp is healthy and available, and if it is not, then quickly identify problems and initiate automated fix actions. And unlike other solutions, MonitorIT can look past XenApp itself, to see how the dependent infrastructure is impacting XenApp, including VMware or XenServer, network devices, physical servers and more.

C.P.U. Inc, in business since 1977, is an information systems and technical services service provider that provides infrastructure management services both on premises and hosted. Frank Jones, President of CPU, commented "We were using a product called N-able for performance monitoring, but we needed a product that gave us better visibility into remote customer environments where we manage XenServer, XenApp and the supporting infrastructure. A specific Bank with stringent SLA's caused us to look for a product with functionality specifically designed for remote management of this type of environment. We selected Goliath Technologies after an extensive evaluation because they offered the capability to easily capture XenApp session information, so we could see which end users were accessing what applications on which XenApp server. Beyond XenApp, Monitor IT also monitors the underlying XenServer infrastructure and does this while supporting multi-tenancy where individual customers have the ability to log in and manage their environment." About Goliath Technologies Goliath Technologies is focused on systems management software for IT organizations that address the evolving challenges of managing physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures. These hybrid environments require solutions that are scalable, cost effective and easy to use. Many legacy technologies are difficult to deploy and expensive to maintain and, as a result, are not well suited for this new paradigm. Inexpensive or free technologies, though easy to deploy and use, lack enterprise functionality and scalability. Both are slow to add features that are required to support physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures. At Goliath, we provide products that fill this gap with the right combination of scalability and functionality at a reasonable cost that embrace the complexities of virtualization and cloud computing. Headquartered in Philadelphia, PA, our software is used by customers worldwide including ADP, ING Direct, MindShift, Thompson Reuters and Shell. Learn more today at About CPU, Inc.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
