Application Response Time for Virtual Operations
For applications running in virtualized, distributed and shared environments it will no longer work to infer the performance of an application by looking at various resource utilization statistics. Rather it is essential to define application performance by measuring response and throughput of every application in production. This paper makes the case for how application performance management for virtualized and cloud based environments needs to be modernized to suit these new environments.

Massive changes are occurring to how applications are built and how they are deployed and run. The benefits of these changes are dramatically increased responsiveness to the business (business agility), increased operational flexibility, and reduced operating costs.

The environments onto which these applications are deployed are also undergoing a fundamental change. Virtualized environments offer increased operational agility which translates into a more responsive IT Operations organization. Cloud Computing offers applications owners a complete out-sourced alternative to internal data center execution environments. IT organizations are in turn responding to public cloud with IT as a Service (IaaS) initiatives.

For applications running in virtualized, distributed and shared environments, it will no longer work to infer the “performance” of an application by looking at various resource utilization statistics. Rather it will become essential to define application performance as response time – and to directly measure the response time and throughput of every application in production. This paper makes the case for how application performance management for virtualized and cloud based environments needs to be modernized to suit these new environments.

FSLogix Lab Installation Guide for Azure
This document contains the steps required to install a Proof-of-Concept (POC) environment for RDSH Full Desktop with FSLogix Apps. POC environments created according to this install guide can be used to test applications controlled by FSLogix Apps in a reproducible way. We build the environment in the cloud in order to minimize costs associated with required hardware, and to streamline the build process. The testing environment is built entirely in Azure and contains an IaaS RDSH deployment incl

This document contains the steps required to install a Proof-of-Concept (POC) environment for RDSH Full Desktop with FSLogix Apps.  POC environments created according to this install guide can be used to test applications controlled by FSLogix Apps in a reproducible way.  We build the environment in the cloud in order to minimize costs associated with required hardware, and to streamline the build process.

The testing environment is built entirely in Azure and contains an IaaS RDSH deployment including the supporting network and domain infrastructure.  A non-Azure based client component accesses the RDSH deployment.

Gartner Market Guide for IT Infrastructure Monitoring Tools
With the onset of more modular and cloud-centric architectures, many organizations with disparate monitoring tools are reassessing their monitoring landscape. According to Gartner, hybrid IT (especially with IaaS subscription) enterprises must adopt more holistic IT infrastructure monitoring tools (ITIM) to gain visibility into their IT landscapes.

With the onset of more modular and cloud-centric architectures, many organizations with disparate monitoring tools are reassessing their monitoring landscape. According to Gartner, hybrid IT (especially with IaaS subscription) enterprises must adopt more holistic IT infrastructure monitoring tools (ITIM) to gain visibility into their IT landscapes.

The guide provides insight into the IT infrastructure monitoring tool market and providers as well as key findings and recommendations.

Get the 2018 Gartner Market Guide for IT Infrastructure Monitoring Tools to see:

  • The ITIM market definition, direction and analysis
  • A list of representative ITIM vendors
  • Recommendations for adoption of ITIM platforms

Key Findings Include:

  • ITIM tools are helping organizations simplify and unify monitoring across domains within a single tool, eliminating the problems of multitool integration.
  • ITIM tools are allowing infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders to scale across hybrid infrastructures and emerging architectures (such as containers and microservices).
  • Metrics and data acquired by ITIM tools are being used to derive context enabling visibility for non-IT teams (for example, line of business [LOB] and app owners) to help achieve optimization targets.
