This week, Citrix made several interesting announcements about the future of their product suite. Among the key announcements was the forthcoming Excalibur release which will include a common management console for their XenApp and XenDesktop technologies. While Excalibur will provide users flexibility to decide how to deliver different applications and desktops to users, it will also include a common console for performance management as well. A unified solution for performance management, diagnosis and reporting across XenApp and XenDesktop deployments is something eG Innovations has been providing for years with our eG Enterprise product suite. We will be watching the Excalibur rollout with interest, to see how the integration of the Citrix products works and what changes are necessary in the management and reporting aspects to deal with the integrated solution.
Of the different articles written about the new Citrix announcements, this one from Computerworld caught the eye. Of particular interest is the quote from IDG:
Getting the management right is incredibly important for Citrix, according to Nathan Hill, research director at Gartner. ”The complexity of managing Citrix environments has historically been a big challenge for organizations.,” said Hill.
We at eG Innovations totally agree! Check out our Citrix performance management solutions:

Here is an interesting blog post on the challenges and opportunities in virtualizing SAP. A recent Aberdeen Group survey indicates that only 31% of SAP deployments have been virtualized so far. When SAP users were questioned about the reasons for not moving to a virtualized infrastructure for supporting SAP, four key areas of concern were mentioned:
- Uncertainty as to the ROI (40%)
- Fear of harming performance (40%)
- Security (27%)
- Lack of resources to conduct the transition (27%)
Being one of the few VMware Ready and SAP Ready certified products in the market, eG Enterprise is uniquely qualified to address the performance management needs of virtualized SAP infrastructures. For more information, visit http://www.eginnovations.com

Below are some interesting statistics regarding the adoption and growth of virtualization technologies. These stats are from a recent VMware presentation.
- What percent of workloads are virtualized currently?
The results indicate a continued increase in adoption of virtualization technologies in the enterprise.
- Which applications are being virtualized the most?
The results indicate that Microsoft Exchange, Sharepoint and SQL have been heavily virtualized. In terms of percentage growth, there are more instances of SAP being virtualized as compared to other applications!
- What about VM density? Are there more VMs being deployed per physical host today than before?
The results indicate an increase in VM density for server/application workloads but the increase is not significant.

Goldman Sachs have just updated their report on IT Spending in 2010 and 2011. Key findings of this report are:
- IT spending is expected to be up 7% in 2010, but it will only be up 4% in 2011.
- There was significant pent-up demand in the first half of 2010. Goldman expects decelerating growth in the 2nd half.
- Government spending in US and UK expected to be down, impacting second half numbers for 2010.
Additional findings from this report are also interesting. On the Enterprise server front, HP and Cisco are gaining at the expense of Oracle/Sun. On the software provider front, VMware, Solarwinds, salesforce.com were the top three gainers.
The survey also points to increasing SaaS adoption in the enterprise, although SaaS licenses are still a very small portion of total licenses (responses to the survey indicated 3% of their licenses were delivered over SaaS – likely to increase to 5% next year). Top SaaS applications for the enterprise are web conferencing, email, and human capital management apps.
Not surprisingly, VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix are dominant in the virtual desktop market with VMware and Citrix alone accounting for 90% mindshare!

A few days back, we responded to an RFP for a virtualization monitoring, diagnosis, reporting, and trending solution. The RFP had been put out by a very large and reputed organization that is going through a datacenter refresh. They are in the process of virtualizing all their servers and are looking for a monitoring solution to help them during the move and beyond.
The RFP had over a hundred questions and the responses had to be submitted in hard copy format (16 copies!) and 4 CDs. We had to print over a thousand pages (yuck!) and courier our response.
Guess these folks believe in Going Green for the servers but not for all other processes!
