The release of Citrix XenDesktop 7 signals a new dawn for end-user computing in terms of mobility, simplicity and security. CA Technologies is assisting Citrix by addressing requirements for enterprise monitoring and manageability that ensure both the infrastructure and XenDesktop experience can be managed together, with a single solution set, leading to faster problem resolution and optimized service delivery.
CA Technologies has been working closely with Citrix to incorporate key capabilities into our CA Infrastructure Management and CA Nimsoft Monitor offerings to help joint customers gain the visibility into performance, activities, events, metrics, configurations, etc. that affect end-user experience. (See Citrix’s extensive comments about CA in this IT Canada article.) CA Technologies’ expertise in end-to-end infrastructure management across networks, storage, applications and virtualization layers has successfully unified management silos for our customers. We are proud to enable our customers to bring virtual applications and desktops into this unification – avoiding their need to use separate islands of management tools.
Citrix XenDesktop 7 unifies virtual applications and desktops and we expect that, together with mobility enhancements, these features are going to drive fast adoption of this new release. We are pleased to inform our joint customers that we have deployed the beta version of Citrix XenDesktop 7 in our own enterprise IT labs.
