Complete Visibility of XenApp and Supporting Infrastructure Substantially Reduces Complexity of Supporting Desktop Virtualization

Philadelphia Pa, November 15, 2012 – Goliath Technologies announced today that they have enhanced their market leading performance monitoring, analysis and reporting product to include out-of-the-box integration into the XenApp Server, SQL Server, Web Interface, Windows Infrastructure and Virtual Servers/Machines. While always easy to use, these new enhancements give Goliath Technologies a tremendous lead over other offerings that either don’t provide this functionality or require months of programming time and expense to achieve it.

“Can you imagine how frustrating it must be to have the responsibility of determining the root cause of performance degradation, when you can’t see all the potential infrastructure elements that might be causing the issue? For the XenApp Administrator who hears the words ‘Citrix is slow,’ this is a reality” said Thomas Charlton, Chairman and CEO of Goliath Technologies.  “The goal is a happy end user and the central challenge is that XenApp depends on networks, underlying physical or virtual servers, and other elements to deliver an acceptable user experience. Our product offers a lens into all of these components so that an administrator can determine causality, remediate quickly, provide objective evidence of root cause and automate fix actions based on best practices thresholds.”

MonitorIT delivers comprehensive monitoring for XenApp Farms and its dependent infrastructure to truly isolate the root cause of problems when they occur, on the local network or in remote environments. Using the XenApp Session Dashboard and Health Check, administrators can finally validate that XenApp is healthy and available, and if it is not, then quickly identify problems and initiate automated fix actions. And unlike other solutions, MonitorIT can look past XenApp itself, to see how the dependent infrastructure is impacting XenApp, including VMware or XenServer, network devices, physical servers and more.

C.P.U. Inc, in business since 1977, is a technical services and information systems service provider that provides infrastructure management services both on premises and hosted. Frank Jones, President of CPU, commented “We were using a product called N-able for performance monitoring, but we needed a product that gave us better visibility into remote customer environments where we manage XenServer, XenApp and the supporting infrastructure. A specific Bank with stringent SLA’s caused us to look for a product with functionality specifically designed for remote management of this type of environment. We selected Goliath Technologies after an extensive evaluation because they offered the capability to easily capture XenApp session information, so we could see which end users were accessing what applications on which XenApp server. Beyond XenApp, Monitor IT also monitors the underlying XenServer infrastructure and does this while supporting multi-tenancy where individual customers have the ability to log in and manage their environment.”

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
