Expand Deployments by Verifying Excellent App Performance
Desktop and application virtualization benefits, such as improving flexibility, operational efficiency, and control, won’t matter if enterprises cannot maintain excellent application performance. The challenge is that virtualization disrupts the traditional relationship between applications, physical hardware, operating systems, and presentation layers. Without comprehensive visibility into application performance as experienced by their end users, VDI administrators, IT Operations, and application owners lack the critical insight needed to effectively plan, manage, and troubleshoot Citrix, VMware, or Microsoft virtual environments.
Aternity provides you with the ability to:
- Validate SLAs are being met by analyzing business activity performance across all applications by geography, department, and data center
- Justify expansion in virtualization projects with fact-based comparison of performance of apps running on virtual vs. physical devices
- Optimize desktop and application virtualization by trending performance KPIs for hypervisor, remote file share, virtual machine, and remote display latency across geographies and datacenters
- Resolve problems quickly by correlating app performance to the virtual systems they are running on, monitoring client side latency, and analyzing the health and key metrics of the end user’s device
Get Visibility into All Tiers of the Virtual Infrastructure
By monitoring the performance of any business transaction within any packaged or custom application, and correlating it with the key performance indicators of the underlying desktop virtualization, Aternity enables IT to effectively plan VDI migrations, and to trouble shoot problems across all layers of the infrastructure.
Aternity illuminates the four primary virtual desktop blind spots:
- Application Execution Time | The actual time spent processing the transaction by the Virtual Desktop
- Host Resource Availability | The ability of a Virtual Desktop to acquire sufficient host resources to optimally execute its tasks
- Infrastructure Latency | Remote file share performance as well as the total Network and Server time spent until the Virtual Desktop receives a response from the application’s server-side components
- Client-side Latency | The latency of the remote display protocol responsible for painting the End Point device’s screen, as experienced by the user
