Vendor Case Study – Security for Virtualized Environment & Citrix Xen

Virtualization provides organizations with many costs savings and significant business agility. Among the most effi cient datacenter operators are service providers, such as Cloud Service Providers (also known as infrastructure-as-a-service) and application-as-a-service providers. Within traditional businesses, virtualization is powering a shift toward IT as a service. As an organization increases the level of virtualization and takes steps toward creating an internal (private) cloud, operating margins become a primary focus of IT departments. Similarly, cost and operational effi ciency represent the primary driver for leveraging external (public) clouds. Many organizations use the Xen hypervisor, while service providers often use Linux operating systems as they provide attractive cost models and operational fl exibility. These organizations excel… Read More »

Vendor Case Study Healthcare – McKesson & Citrix XenApp

Equipped with ExtraHop, the McKesson application hosting team found that failed  DNS record lookups were adding significant latency to Citrix launch and load times. Each failed DNS record lookup took approximately five seconds to resolve, and some application launches triggered more than five of these lookups. By removing bad records, McKesson saw average application launch times drop from 40 seconds to 12 seconds—nearly 75 percent faster. BENEFITS • 90% reduction in mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR) • 75% improvement in Citrix launch and load times • Avoidance of SLA penalties • More than $660,000 in annual cost savings • Retirement of legacy infrastructure monitoring tools   ExtraHop-McKesson-case-study Related Seattle Childrens Case Study Bitdefender-Enterprise-014-SolutionBrief-SVE_Citrix-letter-en_US-WEB21
