Xangati, an infrastructure performance management solutions provider, has released Xangati VDI Dashboard, designed to comprehensively track all key infrastructure components that affect VDI performance. The new product gives administrators the confidence and ability to successfully implement large-scale virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments.

Leveraging Xangati’s real-time, memory-based analytics engine architecture, the Xangati VDI Dashboard tracks and continuously monitors activity of all VDI components within the infrastructure the need for agents. The new dashboard also includes a performance health engine that automatically and visually alerts administrators in real-time about the precise location of performance issues.

Covering components inside and outside the virtual infrastructure (VI), the Xangati VDI Dashboard gives administrators comprehensive “cross-silo” awareness about all critical elements linked to (including clients, desktops, networks, servers, storage, applications, and VDI protocols) so enterprises can provide a positive VDI user experience.

Xangati VDI Dashboard complements both VMware View and Citrix XenDesktop environments.

Xangati VDI Dashboard’s features include:

  • Real-time Performance Health Engine: Xangati VDI Dashboard’s performance health engine analyzes the health of VDI in four microseconds. Relying on Xangati’s memory-driven architecture, the performance health of the VDI is continuously monitored across a broad spectrum of performance metrics for up to 250,000 objects (which can include desktops and clients).

    The output -- a real-time health index -- is linked to the health of every client, desktop, network link, host, VDI protocol, and IT server that can impact the VDI end-user experience. The health index changes in real time to reflect the urgency of the performance issue. Performance shifts will trigger real-time alerts; the solution also includes a DVR recording to support troubleshooting that shows exactly where the performance problem originates and presents contextual insights about what is driving the sub-optimal performance.
  • All VDI Operations in a View: A VDI team can see in one view all the critical components that sustain the VDI, as well as the desktops and their clients. Through this structure, the Xangati solution replicates how a VDI administrator seeks to run operations. Additionally, the VDI dashboard incorporates Xangati’s visual trouble-ticketing model that allows end users to initiate DVR recordings when they are experiencing issues so the VDI administrator can review the problem.
