Why Monitoring Matters

Visibility into your full virtualized infrastructure is always important, but it is especially critical during a migration.

Monitoring the existing environment allows you to establish a baseline for your organization’s end user experience quality and resource utilization and yields valuable information for your migration’s sizing requirements. Monitoring the new environment during the roll-out allows you to quickly troubleshoot small issues before they turn into large ones, as well as ensuring proper resource consumption and successful end user transitions.

At Goliath, we provide monitoring tools that go beyond Citrix Director by providing full visibility into your entire virtual infrastructure to help you achieve a seamless migration and prevent end user experience issues in your existing and new environments. We even offer special migration pricing where we’ll provide you discounted monitoring and troubleshooting licenses for both your legacy environment and your new one, so you can get full visibility into your environment every step of the way.
