HERMES SoftLab to extend Citrix SPI support to Citrix® Presentation Server 4.5 and additional HP Software products

Edinburgh, 6 June 2007, Citrix iForum – Hermes SoftLab today announced the launch of its leading management solution for Citrix® Presentation Server 4.5 with the support for key new Citrix and HP Software platforms.

The HP booth at the Citrix iForum in Edinburgh will be featuring a new version of Citrix SPI, which is already monitoring Presentation Servers, Web Interfaces, License Servers, Secure Gateways, user logon processes and much more.

Upcoming Citrix SPI extensions will be supporting the Citrix Presentation Server 4.5, Web Interface 4.5, HP Performance Insight and HP Performance Agent. General availability of these extensions is planned for Q3 2007. Furthermore, integration with HP SiteScope is also set to be announced.

”The SPI for Citrix is one of our key branded products massively embraced by our customer base. HERMES SoftLab has a longstanding relationship with HP and is a big proponent of the HP Software approach to management. Citrix has obviously spent quite some time working on manageability—the result is truly one of the best application management efforts we have been involved in.” stated HERMES SoftLab CEO, Peter Testen.

The Smart Plug-in for Citrix is the first management solution to help Presentation Servers server farm managers who are using HP Software to determine which published applications are affected by various farm events. Key performance indicators such as resource consumption by users, session, or application, combined with latency and user logon processes provide a new level of insight into the Presentation Servers. The SPI also provides reporting capacities, including numerous “out-of-the-box” reports, Crystal report customization, and billing reports for usage charging.
