My Post-Synergy View – Update 1 #CitrixSynergy #Citrix #CitrixSummit #ShareFile #CloudGateway

October 22, 2012 2 comments

Ok, the week has past and Citrix Summit & Synergy is over. And with this little post I’d like to give you all my view on what the key takeaways are and also how they are related to the enhancement list that I’ve been consolidating.

As always: this is my personal view and I hope you like it, if not browse off to somewhere else! And due to that I missed my wife and kids I took the weekend off completely so this is Update 1, and I’ll summarise my whole Synergy experience in Update 2 later this week! 🙂

I changed the post layout from being a table as we say it in the previous blog into a more “readable” format below. Each heading represents the enhancement request topic and/or the takeaway item, and then the subheading of Description and Status is showing you my personal view on the topic and its status.

Enjoy!

Licensing

Description:

One of the main issues with licensing is that all products don’t supports the license server (NetScaler etc.)

Status:

Not fulfilled.

All products do still not use the license server! This needs to be changed and I’d really like to get some real reporting capabilities in place that can present how licenses are used over time, by whom and by which component (product) in the service stack. 

Monitoring & Reporting

Description:

  1. Ensure that you can get historical concurrent user reports that spans across ALL products (NetScaler/AG, XenApp, XenDesktop etc.).
  1. Ensure that Citrix provides an end-2-end monitoring and reporting service for the whole Citrix stack. This to ensure that delivery organizations can deliver reports like “Service Availability in %” over time that includes all service components (NetScaler AGEE VIP, StoreFront/WI, PVS/MSC, XenServer, XenApp/VDA, Profile Server, etc. If Citrix isn’t going to do this; then please point on a product that does the job.
