ComTrade and Citrix
ComTrade and Citrix Collaborate to Provide End to End Monitoring and Management of XenDesktop
ComTrade's Management Pack for Citrix XenDesktop helps XenDesktop users to measure, monitor and manage XenDesktop and provides a complete end-to-end view of your Citrix environment from within Microsoft Systems Center Operations Manager.
It doesn’t just automatically discover and visualize the topology of XenDesktop environment, but also monitors its health and state, from connectivity issues to utilization, load and availability. Performance charts and trending reports enable insight into XenDesktop infrastructure and end-user experiences.
DELIVER YOUR VIRTUAL DESKTOPS WITH CONFIDENCE
ComTrade Management Pack for Citrix XenDesktop brings immediate value to any operations staff, Citrix specialist, or IT manager with improved infrastructure health, better desktop and application availability, agent-less hosting infrastructure oversight and complete end-to-end monitoring.
Let's see the details:
- Virtual desktop infrastructure availability is confirmed through rigorous connectivity probing and active service checks. XenServer hosts that are not coping with desktop load and desktops consuming large amounts of resources can be quickly identified, and XenApp controllers failing to deliver applications to desktops are easily isolated.
- With XenServer hosting infrastructure, user desktops can be monitored without any agent software installed on hosts or desktops, ensuring ease of deployment, stability, and no impact when extending or upgrading XenServer infrastructure.
- Performance and availability information from XenDesktop infrastructure is integrated with that of the XenServer virtual hosting and XenApp infrastructure as well as other back-end application layers. Microsoft System Center Operations Manager becomes the operations bridge for different subject matter experts. This end-to-end approach ensures coherent IT responses and efficient management of application delivery.
