You may have noticed that the EdgeSight brand does not appear in XenApp and XenDesktop 7.9, the latest release of Citrix industry-leading virtualization platforms. Why is that the case? Read on to learn more.

A Brief History of EdgeSight

Back in 2006, Citrix acquired Reflectent Software and its EdgeSight monitoring solution. Over the years, EdgeSight provided admins with invaluable data about the performance and availability of their delivery infrastructure.

With the release of the 7.x series of XenApp and XenDesktop, we introduced the concept of EdgeSight-like features within the web-based Citrix Director console and referred to these as EdgeSight as well (see the XenDesktop 7: Director and EdgeSight explained blog for details).
