Citrix Performance Monitoring to Support Monitoring as a Service Key in Decision
Philadelphia, PA May 12, 2012 – CPU Inc, a service provider and full service computer consulting and services firm, announced today that they have selected Goliath Technologies as their sole solution to monitor and manage their internal, hosted and remote customer environments having previously used N-able.
“We used N-able for several years, but as our business grew and our market evolved so did our needs for monitoring tools, especially Citrix performance monitoring, to support our clients’ ever changing, complex infrastructures,” said Frank Jones, President of CPU. “We needed a product that offered the ability to monitor, analyze and report on the performance of Citrix XenServer, XenApp and XenDesktop at remote customer sites. We evaluated SolarWinds, Nimsoft, GFI, Kaseya, Remote Assist, PacketTrap, eG Innovations and attempted to work with N-able. Our extensive search led us to Goliath Technologies. Their product manages the required virtual server, application, and desktop elements, but the way it is architected to accomplish these elements separated them from other offerings. Their Intelligent Agent, for instance, will save hours of setup time because of automated deployment. It also provides extensive data collection and reporting, remediation, and log management, all essential to meeting our SLA’s.”
Goliath Technologies offers one of the only comprehensive infrastructure and Citrix performance monitoring solutions in the market today that is architected for use by Cloud Providers. This multi-tenant technology allows an administrator to monitor the entire physical and virtual infrastructure from a single console. This complete and unified view accelerates root cause analysis and remediation. The cost and ease of use make it especially attractive to Cloud Providers that are under pressure to balance margins with SLA’s.
“We are quite pleased that the team from CPU has chosen Goliath Technologies as the sole provider of performance monitoring, analysis and reporting for their virtual server and Citrix desktop environments,” said Thomas Charlton, Chairman and CEO of Goliath Technologies. “While many companies have re-cast their products as solutions designed for Service Providers, the functionality they offer doesn’t reflect an understanding of the unique challenges faced by the vendors in this rapidly growing market sector. Before anyone had coined the phrase Cloud Computing, our earliest customers were Service Providers who had to manage remote environments, meet stringent SLA’s and manage sometimes narrow profit margins. They drove our product requirements, so now we have a technology that is designed to overcome their specific technical challenges and support their unique business model. The fact that CPU and other service providers are selecting our product further validates the investment we have made in the technology.”
About Goliath Technologies
Goliath Technologies is focused on systems management software for IT organizations that address the evolving challenges of managing physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures. These hybrid environments require solutions that are scalable, cost effective and easy to use. Many legacy technologies are difficult to deploy and expensive to maintain and, as a result, are not well suited for this new paradigm. Inexpensive or free technologies, though easy to deploy and use, lack enterprise functionality and scalability. Both are slow to add features that are required to support physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures. At Goliath, we provide products that fill this gap with the right combination of scalability and functionality at a reasonable cost that embrace the complexities of virtualization and cloud computing. Headquartered in Philadelphia, PA, our software is used by customers worldwide including ADP, ING Direct, MindShift, Thomson Reuters and Shell. Learn more today at https://goliathtechnologies.com/
