American Structurepoint Selects Goliath Performance Monitor to Proactively Manage Their Citrix and NVIDIA GRID vGPU Environment

Goliath Technologies, the leading provider of Proactive IT Operations solutions for hybrid virtual server, virtual desktop and cloud environments, was selected by American Structurepoint to proactively manage their end users' experience.

As a rapidly growing engineering and architecture firm, American Structurepoint's IT Operations team faced a common challenge-how to efficiently deliver graphics-intensive applications, like AutoCAD, to their end users' desktops at remote locations without deploying infrastructure at each location.

American Structurepoint chose XenServer to run XenDesktop and NVIDIA GRID vGPU cards to deliver their end users' desktops across their WAN. As American Structurepoint scaled their Citrix environment across their remote locations, their IT Director discovered that the monitoring solution in use, SolarWinds, was unable to gather sufficient data from the network, needed to troubleshoot and resolve performance issues before end users were affected.

"If we can't see what's happening at any infrastructure level, we are in big trouble, because we would just be guessing at the root cause of a specific issue. To us, Goliath Technologies' key value is pulling metrics for Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop, End User Experience, NVIDIA GRID vGPU and the supporting IT infrastructure into a single console, so we have broad and deep visibility to preempt potential issues and if they do occur, troubleshoot quickly" said, Adam Martin, IT Director for American Structurepoint.

IMSCAD, a Citrix Partner and leader in Graphics Virtualization, recommended American Structurepoint utilize a 30-day free trial of Goliath Performance Monitor to test the technology's ability to get metrics fro
m XenDesktop, vGPU, XenServer, and the physical infrastructure in order to ensure a positive end user experience.

"We are grateful to IMSCAD for their recommendation and happy that American Structure point chose our technology to proactively monitor and manage their Citrix and NVIDIA GRID vGPU environment." said Thomas Charlton, Chairman and CEO of Goliath Technologies.
