Q&A: eG Innovations Showcases Comprehensive Performance Monitoring and Management at #CitrixSynergy 2016 - Booth 640S

Citrix Synergy QA 

As part of VMblog's live Citrix Synergy 2016 coverage coming up later this month, we're getting our schedule ready to learn as much as we can, as quickly as we can.  Citrix Synergy is always packed with great information coming from various breakout sessions, networking sessions, keynotes and more!  But one of the places we always learn a lot is in the Solutions Expo where valuable vendors from the Citrix ecosystem setup shop to display their wares. 

But with so many vendors exhibiting at the show, how do you know who to get on your schedule? And which booths to visit?  

For years now, I've been visiting with the team at eG Innovations at Citrix Synergy, following up with them year after year to see how they have advanced their monitoring and management solutions.  And they always have something new and interesting to show me.  I've got them on my list this year, and you should as well.  In case you don't know, who are they?

eG Innovations is helping businesses across the globe transform IT service delivery into a competitive advantage and a center for productivity, growth and profit. Providing end-to-end visibility - from users to servers to networks and storage - our award-winning eG Enterprise Universal Insight technology provides organizations with a 360 degree view of their entire IT infrastructure. This single pane of glass view allows enterprise IT teams to collaborate easily and solve key user-visible problems. Unparalleled visibility also allows IT architects to determine how to right-size and optimize their IT infrastructures for maximum ROI.

Our patented automatic root-cause diagnosis technology is designed for dynamic, inter-dependent physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures where proactive monitoring and rapid diagnosis of problems is a challenge. Instead of spending hours of time analyzing the problem, with eG Enterprise, IT helpdesks and administrators can go from a user visible problem to an actionable event in just a few clicks.

Are you going to Synergy?  If so, I invite you to get eG Innovations on your "must see" list.  Want to learn more?  Check out this interview to learn about what they have planned for the upcoming Citrix Synergy 2016 event.



VMblog:  Can't wait to see you guys at Citrix Synergy 2016.  What is your booth # so attendees can find you?  And what sponsorship level are you this year?

eG Innovations:  We are a Silver Sponsor in Booth # 640S - a 10x10 booth.

VMblog:  If an attendee likes what they see and hear at your booth... what message about your product can you send them back with to sell their boss on your technology?

eG Innovations:  An attendee can tell ‘their boss' that eG Enterprise offers Citrix-driven IT organizations the benefit of the industry's only 3-dimensional performance monitoring coverage which delivers the ultimate Citrix insight for the ultimate performance confidence:
  • Reach across every tier - network, storage, virtualization, Citrix, Windows and more
  • Depth of coverage - putting the metrics that matter at your fingertips
  • Speed to resolution - helping you to detect and fix issues in minutes, instead of hours

eG Enterprise takes very little CPU usage with both agent and agent-less options and offers a variety of pricing options (servers or users) depending on what works best for the organization. It has a small learning curve so it can be up and running and delivering results pretty immediately.

And, most importantly, they should know that eG Innovations' flagship product, eG Enterprise, is the exclusive performance monitoring solution for on-site physical and virtual infrastructure systems at the upcoming Citrix Synergy 2016 event, and was also used to monitor and manage Citrix Synergy 2015 and Citrix Summit 2016 in January.

VMblog:  With so many vendors exhibiting at Synergy this year, why should an attendee put you on their MUST SEE list?

eG Innovations:  As a Premier Citrix-Ready Partner with a 15-year relationship with Citrix, we are constantly improving the capabilities of eG Enterprise to help with monitoring of all new Citrix products, features and upgrades. We provide the most effective and scalable Citrix monitoring solution in the industry, enabling organizations to deliver great end-user experience, efficient IT growth and maximum return for every IT investment. 

In fact, for a third consecutive major industry conference, the Citrix Corporate Events Technical Engineering team is again implementing eG Innovations for proactive performance management and comprehensive monitoring to help deliver a seamless desktop and application experience for event attendees. eG Enterprise will be leveraged to help uncover any configuration issues during the build of the infrastructure environment and manage the live IT infrastructure powering Citrix product demonstrations in The Citrix Booth Experience of the Solutions Expo.

Achieving top performance in the conference's heterogeneous, and mission-critical environment requires real-time visibility across every tier and into each layer of the infrastructure to allow the fastest possible remediation for any issues that may arise. eG Enterprise's custom performance dashboards and comprehensive reporting will help the Citrix engineering team ensure a great user experience.

In addition to the upcoming Citrix Synergy event, eG Innovations was previously utilized to monitor and manage Citrix Synergy 2015 and Citrix Summit 2016 in January.

You MUST come see a demo to see for yourself!

VMblog:  Why is this a must sponsor event for your company?

eG Innovations:  Due to our Premier-level Citrix-Ready sponsorship, our 15-year history with Citrix and our continued dedication to being an industry leader in Citrix Performance Monitoring, this is a must-sponsor event for our company.

VMblog:  Can you give VMblog readers a sneak peek as to what you will be showing off at your booth this year?  What should attendees expect to see and hear at your booth?

eG Innovations:  We will be demonstrating all of the new Citrix Performance Management features of eG Enterprise 6.1 and how they can extend across a complex environment for a single pane of glass view across Citrix, VMware, Microsoft, storage, database servers, etc. (we can create a demonstration that is applicable to a given environment).

VMblog:  If you would, please explain or give readers a few reasons why your product or service is considered unique? 

eG Innovations:  Please see above about our industry-leading Citrix performance monitoring solution. eG Enterprise 6.1 completely fills the well-documented gaps for Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop 7.x and increases your ability to: 
  • Gain faster insight into every Citrix end-user experience
  • Better analyze and improve shared GPU usage
  • Identify network issues across multiple locations and their impact on Citrix performance
  • Centralize the use of all Citrix management tools through a single, unified console
  • Easily generate reports to assess Citrix logon performance, printing performance, virtual machine capacity planning/right-sizing, and pre- vs. post-migration performance comparisons

Plus, it is also unique in that Citrix chose eG Enterprise to monitor and manage their largest global event (see more information on this above).

As a Citrix Technology Partner since 2003, eG Innovations offers comprehensive performance management solutions that are fully aligned and Citrix-Ready validated with Citrix technologies and its vision for efficient, scalable and profitable enterprise virtualization. eG Innovations' clients include some of the largest Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop deployments in the world in healthcare, finance, IT,  manufacturing, entertainment and business services.

VMblog:  Finally, attendees always enjoy a good trade show tchotchke.  Are you guys giving away anything special or interesting this year?

eG Innovations:  We have very handy powerbanks we will be giving away at our booth plus the opportunity to win the very popular Amazon Echo (we will give away two during the conference). All attendees have to do is come by and drop their business card.


Well there you have it.  And who couldn't use an extra powerbank?  Especially at a trade show.  I don't know how many times at least one of my devices die after draining down the battery on me while live Tweeting, etc.

And what Citrix environment doesn't need comprehensive performance monitoring and management?  So make sure to go by the eG Innovations booth 640S and get a demo of their latest products.
