Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) April 21, 2011
Xangati, the recognized leader in infrastructure performance management, today announced that its Xangati VDI Dashboard has been verified as Citrix Ready®. The Citrix Ready program helps customers identify third-party solutions that are recommended to enhance virtualization, networking and cloud computing solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. The Xangati VDI Dashboard completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with Citrix XenDesktop®, providing confidence in joint solution compatibility.
The Citrix Ready program makes it easy for customers to identify complementary products and solutions that enhance Citrix environments. Customers can be confident that the Xangati VDI Dashboard has successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix, and can be trusted to work effectively with XenDesktop to deliver a management solution that can comprehensively track and analyze all key infrastructure components affecting VDI performance.
Announced last month, the Xangati VDI Dashboard is the first solution to manage VDI to operational scale. The product features a patent-pending real-time performance health engine that continuously monitors the VDI – showing the health of every client, desktop, network link, host, VDI protocol and IT server – and visually alerts VI administrators about performance issues that impact the XenDesktop user experience.
“We are pleased to have Xangati join us in the Citrix Ready program,” said John Fanelli, Vice President of Solutions and Community Marketing, Citrix. “Citrix Ready makes it easier for customers to select the most suitable virtualization products for their specific needs. As part of the Citrix Ready program, the Xangati VDI Dashboard adds value to XenDesktop VDI initiatives by ensuring availability and performance through its unique performance health engine.”
“As a member of the Citrix Ready program, we can now offer partners and customers innovative solutions that seamlessly integrate our recently-announced Xangati VDI Dashboard with the XenDesktop environment,” said Alan Robin, CEO of Xangati. “Our goal is to deliver comprehensive infrastructure performance management (IPM) products that maximize the benefits of emerging virtualization technologies, such as VDI. Being part of the Citrix Ready partner ecosystem gives us yet another way to provide the highest quality customer experience.”
In addition to its real-time health performance engine, the Xangati VDI Dashboard provides Citrix customers with key features that include: all VDI operations in a single pane of glass; end-user initiated DVR recordings; cross-silo awareness into all critical elements; and an agent-free model that allows for rapid deployment and is easily scalable to the thousands or tens of thousands.
