Simplifying the Monitoring of Multi-Hypervisor Infrastructures Over the years, many enterprises have achieved tremendous cost reductions and management simplicity through virtualizing their IT infrastructure. According to Gartner, while some firms have virtualized over 90% of their servers, on an average, most firms have over 75% of their servers in a virtualized infrastructure, indicating the growth and maturity of the x86 server virtualization market. VMware dominated the virtualization market for several years but organizations are now also adopting other hypervisors such as Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, Oracle VM Server, Red Had Virtualization, etc. Additionally, the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) is an alternative for handling virtualization in Linux environments. And, the advent of hyper-converged infrastructures has introduced new hypervisors such ... (more)

Citrix Logon Simulator: A Must-Have for Citrix Administrators

Slow logon is one of the most common complaints from Citrix users. Due to the multitude of steps involved and the inter-dependencies between various tiers in the logon process, logon slowness is a difficult problem for Citrix administrators to detect and resolve. Citrix logon performance can be monitored in two ways: Passively, by observing real user logons and tracking the time taken to logon, as well as a breakdown of where time is being spent Actively, by simulating logons periodically to a Citrix farm, determining if logon succeeds and how long it takes Both approaches comple...

Poll Results: Citrix VDI Key Challenges

Recently, eG Innovations co-hosted a webinar with Nutanix, titled Optimizing Citrix VDI for the Enterprise Cloud. We asked attendees, “What are the key challenges with your VDI deployment?” Here are the results: Hyper-converged infrastructures, such as Nutanix, offer a cost-efficient scale-out architecture for running VDI workloads. While VDI deployment is more simple with hyper-converged infrastructures (as resources are added on demand), performance monitoring poses the same challenges as implementing VDI on traditional physical or virtual servers. From the above poll results, ... (more)
