PremiTech Releases Performance Guard v3.3 at Citrix iForum 2004
Premitech Showcases New Application Performance Monitoring Features, Hosts Citrix Tuning Workshop with Citrix Technology Expert Douglas Brown

Orlando, Fla., October 4, 2004 – PremiTech, a leading provider of software for monitoring and optimizing end-user IT performance, today released the Performance Guard™ Module for Citrix version 3.3. For existing and new Citrix MetaFrame customers, the Performance Guard Module for Citrix provides consistent, accurate measurement of Citrix application performance from the end-user perspective in real time. PremiTech, a sponsor of iForum with its solutions partner RapidApp, will be demonstrating Performance Guard in Booth #31 at Citrix iForum 2004, October 4-7, in Orlando, Fla.

“The Performance Guard Module for Citrix provides our customers with the ability to precisely monitor and optimize performance of their on-demand computing systems so users can have immediate access to strategic company information,” said Mitch Northcutt, president and CEO of RapidApp, an IT solutions engineering firm in Chicago. “PremiTech’s solution is a unique and cost-effective way for IT directors to reduce the time it takes to understand and manage the actual performance of their Citrix-based applications, while realizing an increased return on their investments.”

In addition, PremiTech and renowned Citrix authority Douglas Brown of DABCC.com will be educating iForum attendees on performance optimizing best practices in the Citrix Tuning Workshop, 5:00 pm on October 4 at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Swan Resort. The two parties have partnered to help companies add immediate value to their Citrix access infrastructure software using Premitech’s Performance Guard Module for Citrix and Brown’s expertise on Citrix system performance and tuning. 

“As Citrix access infrastructure software transforms more organizations into on-demand enterprises, it become increasingly important to use the tools and methodologies that will enable IT to optimize their systems,” commented Douglas Brown, recognized server-based computing expert. “I’m using Performance Guard because it is the only tool that will allow me to accurately monitor Citrix application performance and examine the effects of performance tuning, and I would recommend it to anyone.”

The Performance Guard Module for Citrix is an off-the-shelf, standard solution that provides the ability to monitor end-user quality of service, as well as the performance of the Citrix server and supporting back-end servers. This data is essential for the rapidly growing number of companies using access infrastructure solutions from Citrix to measure mission-critical application performance, identify performance bottlenecks and resolve issues.

Based on user feedback, the enhancements available in version 3.3 make it even easier for companies to improve system performance, increase user productivity, reduce expenses in infrastructure and help-desk resources, and ensure compliance with Service Level Agreements (SLAs). The new features include the ability to use group alarms for baselines, define SLAs on individual transactions, present transaction comparison bar charts, display the most important statistics for the creation of baselines, and provide a “Load & Hit Overview” on the most often used applications.
