Another cool application!

AppEnsure, a leading provider of application performance solutions for cloud and virtualized environments, today announced the first free product to aid IT operations with application performance monitoring and management. AppEnsure Free is the first free solution to automatically measure response time and throughput for all applications, including custom developed and purchased, in all locations; physical, virtualized, public and private cloud.

AppEnsure Free helps IT Operations rapidly troubleshoot and diagnose application performance problems within minutes and prevents war room meetings. The solution is easy-to-use and deploy and gives immediate insight into common application issues such as slow response time.

“IT Operations teams are the first ones blamed when an application is performing poorly,” reports Bernd Harzog, Performance and Capacity Management Analyst at The Virtualization Practice. “Giving these teams visibility into application response time and throughput will arm them with the necessary data to quickly resolve performance issues.”

“We developed AppEnsure Free to help IT Operations,” said Colin L.M. Macnab, CEO and co-founder of AppEnsure. “Time and time again we talk with companies struggling with their current performance management systems and we wanted to give companies a solution – at no cost – to help them ensure mission critical applications are performing as expected and to eliminate blame during war room meetings and bridge calls.”

AppEnsure Free costs absolutely nothing for a perpetual 5 servers…

#Citrix Introducing #CloudBridge 2000 and 3000

Ok, this is interesting!

Citrix is pleased to announce the new WAN-optimization appliances: CloudBridge 2000 and CloudBridge 3000. These appliances come loaded with our WAN-optimization and XenDesktop acceleration technologies including rich protocol optimization, advanced TCP flow-control, adaptive compression and smart acceleration.

This blog highlights some of key features of these appliances.

Un-matched Scalability: A pay-grow offering that is unique in the WAN-optimization industry

Using the pay-grow offering, CloudBridge 2000 can be scaled from a throughput of 10 Mbps to 20 Mbps and further to 50 Mbps with just a license upgrade. Similarly CloudBridge 3000 can be scaled from 50 Mbps to 100 Mbps and further to 155 Mbps. This avoids the cost, time and logistics overhead associated with a forklift replacement. So if you have small office and expect to grow in future then these appliances are ideal for you.

Built-in reliability

CB 2000 and CB 3000 models come prepackaged with Network bypass cards for the traffic interfaces. This ensures that the traffic to your network is never interrupted, even in case of power failure to the appliance.

Also with these models do not contain any rotating disks. Instead they use SSDs as storage resulting in enhanced disk-access speed and…
