eG Innovations Showcases Industry's First Xen Dashboard for Unified Performance Management of the Citrix Ecosystem

Xen Dashboard Simplifies, Accelerates and Reduces Costs for Management of All Citrix Platforms

ISELIN, NJ and LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- eG Innovations today announced that it will be showcasing at Citrix Synergy 2014 a live preview of eG Xen Dashboard, a new performance dashboard to dramatically simplify management of all Citrix platforms, applications and users through a single interface to deliver high performance, user satisfaction and Citrix deployment success. eG Innovations is showcasing the new Xen Dashboard for the first time at Citrix Synergy 2014, May 6 - 8, in booth # 412.

Citrix has evolved into a rich ecosystem with products including Citrix XenDesktop, XenApp, XenServer, NetScaler, Provisioning Services, Cloud, StoreFront, ShareFile, XenMobile, and VDI-in-a-Box. Managing this rich environment through multiple administration consoles slows responsiveness, increases support cost and can negatively impact user experience and productivity. Xen Dashboard is designed to simplify, accelerate and reduce cost for management of all Citrix platforms.

"Performance and user experience are key for the many use cases enabled by Citrix technologies, including BYOD, virtual desktops, flex work, remote partner access, or call center transformation," said Matt Wrabley, Vice President of Business Development at eG Innovations. "The eG Xen Dashboard marks the first solution in the market to collect and analyze performance data across all Citrix platforms, while presenting it in a unified and integrated fashion to support role-specific use cases such as migration management, troubleshooting, reporting, and capacity planning in a central, intuitive dashboard. This centralized dashboard approach dramatically simplifies Citrix management, delivers ease of use and allows for rapid identification of performance problems."

Key features and benefits of the Xen Dashboard include:

  • New customizable dashboards that allow administrators to track the health of every Citrix tier -- XenApp, XenDesktop, Provisioning services, Licensing, XenMobile, XenServer and Sharefile -- from a single pane.

  • Citrix administrators, architects and helpdesk staff can easily monitor and manage every tier of the Citrix infrastructure from a single, unified dashboard. eG Xen Dashboard provides real-time views of all critical Citrix components and IT systems, giving enterprise IT staff deep performance visibility into Citrix and IT environments and their interdependencies. With the dashboard, IT administrators, helpdesk and Citrix service owners will find it easier to analyze and diagnose even the most complex heterogeneous environments, deliver superior end-user experience in order to get maximum ROI out of Citrix investments. Xen Dashboard gives IT unprecedented, end to end, real-time and historical visibility on how Citrix users are doing, and how Citrix apps and infrastructure are performing.

  • Broadest management coverage of Citrix technologies in the industry, out of the box, including Citrix XenDesktop, XenApp, XenServer, NetScaler, Provisioning Services, Cloud, StoreFront, and VDI-in-a-Box. Now also supporting ShareFile and XenMobile to enable success and user satisfaction for BYOD and enterprise mobility.

  • eG Xen Dashboard also integrates with the Citrix Monitor service built into the XenApp/XenDesktop architecture, in addition to integration with Citrix Director / EdgeSight. This provides customers with in-depth insights into key performance indicators that are collected by the Citrix Monitor service, including failed desktops, user connection failures, failed OS machines, user logon performance, etc.

Join eG Innovations at the Citrix Developer Exchange Theater @ Synergy to learn more about leveraging Citrix APIs to deliver value to customers, presented on Tuesday, May 6 @ 7 pm and Wednesday, May 7 @ 12:30 pm.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
Collecting data in the field and configuring multitudes of unique devices is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that can stretch IT resources. Horan & Bird [H&B], Australia’s fifth-largest Solar Panel Installer, wanted to automate sensor data collection and monitoring from its solar panels and integrate the data with its business and marketing systems. After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a b...
When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
