Centrix Software to showcase new solutions at VMworld that help organizations control their changing application landscapes

Centrix Software, a provider of unified end-user computing solutions, today announced it will be demonstrating solutions that help organizations understand in detail the real usage of applications, providing vital information to help plan desktop transformation projects, such as desktop virtualization, at this year’s VMworld event, to be held in Las Vegas on 29th August to 1st September 2011. The company will also be demonstrating updated products that enable organizations to deliver user-centric applications, regardless of underlying technology.

Located in the Innovator Pavilion at Booth 171-F, Centrix Software will demonstrate the latest version of its Centrix WorkSpace Suite, a range of business technology solutions that enable organizations to analyze, plan and deliver virtual environments and ensure they are optimized to meet user needs. It will also unveil new self-service features of WorkSpace 5.1 that allow organizations to manage the on-demand delivery of applications from virtual, cloud and physical application and provisioning environments.

For organizations migrating to or expanding virtual environments, Centrix Solutions will be demonstrating solutions for:

  • Virtualization Planning – that help organizations determine the most cost effective approach to application and desktop virtualization, the most viable candidates for virtualization and the financial impact of implementing virtualization.
  • Virtualization Implementation decision support – that gather the details of what operating system licenses can be re-used, what applications need to be available in a virtualized environment and who needs to access them; how to define application group templates for virtual desktops; the viability of devices as virtual desktop or application client machines; anticipated workload on virtualization servers; who is using local printers, and many other details that help inform choices in virtualization.
  • Analysing virtualization server usage and demand – providing reporting on the application inventory and usage demand on currently virtualized servers, as well as the use of any App-V packaged applications. This enables organizations to establish the appropriate license entitlement, whether there are applications that can be removed from the servers and what the user load on virtual servers really is.
  • Usage Reporting – that quickly identify which users are on which applications, how frequently and for how long. This provides intelligence for rationalizing IT infrastructure and costs.

“Enterprise organizations are making significant decisions about their application and desktop strategies against a backdrop of tight cost control and intense organizational pressure,” said Lewis Gee, Vice President Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Centrix Software. “At VMworld this year we are showing organizations how they can gather the critical information and intelligence data they need to ensure they make the best technology decisions for their organizations and new technology investments and services deliver fast return and business value.”
