When you stop to think about it, how should the success of a virtual delivery infrastructure ultimately be measured? In my mind, there are several factors to consider in this determination including cost, user experience, availability and supportability.

All these factors need to be continually assessed throughout an environment’s lifecycle — compared against themselves and other baselines over time. That’s why the monitoring aspect of an environment is so important. As an admin, you need to ensure that you’re capturing the right data, that you know how to interpret that data and then take action on the data — as well as know all the tools at your disposal.

Now that we’ve established just how important monitoring is for an environment, how will you ensure that you’re best equipped with the latest monitoring info and tips? The answer is by attending SYN709 on monitoring the Citrix virtual workspace at Synergy 2017 in Orlando.

In this jam-packed session, monitoring product manager Mudit Mehrotra and I will guide you through the latest on Citrix Director, the Citrix SCOM Management Packs and monitoring strategies in Citrix Cloud. Of course, you’ll also have the opportunity to chat with us so bring along your toughest questions and asks for the future of monitoring.

We hope to see you at Synergy! If you haven’t already registered for the event, visit www.citrixsynergy.com today to make it happen. It will be our biggest and best event to date with plenty of learning and networking opportunities. Leading up to our monitoring session at the event, if you have specific monitoring topics you’d like us to consider covering, or maybe a great monitoring story of your own worth sharing, please let us know through the comments below.

Until next time, happy monitoring! 🙂
