ManageEngine Debuts Performance Monitoring for VMware Horizon View at VMworld US 2014
PLEASANTON, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
the real-time IT management company, today announced the availability of
VMware Horizon View monitoring in Applications
Manager, its application performance monitoring solution. The move
enables enterprises to gain immediate visibility into and understanding
of virtual desktop infrastructures (VDIs) running on Horizon View.
Likewise, the announcement ensures that users of applications delivered
via Horizon View experience optimal application performance.
ManageEngine (News - Alert) will be demonstrating Applications Manager and its new
Horizon View monitoring in booth 2610 at VMworld
US 2014 being held August 24-28, 2014, at the Moscone Center in San
Virtual desktop infrastructure solutions such as Horizon View can help
enterprises combat rising data center costs and management headaches.
However, many VDI implementations never reach production level due to
costly downtime issues, poor performance and end-user complaints. Common
problems include network connectivity loss as well as slow remote
desktop and application performance. With VMware, the IT management
challenges are further complicated by the complex Horizon View
architecture, which makes troubleshooting performance issues difficult.
As a result, IT admins often struggle to deliver acceptable levels of
performance to end users.
"Users don't care how technology works. They just want their
applications to run smoothly whether they're on virtual desktops or
physical desktops," said Sridhar Iyengar, vice president of product
management at ManageEngine. "By proactively monitoring the performance
of Horizon View, Applications Manager lets IT administrators keep an eye
on the overall performance and quality of the users' experience and thus
make the transition to virtual desktops as seamless as possible."
