Comtrade Software recently announced the general availability of the Nutanix/Citrix SCOM SuperPack, which provides end-to-end visibility across the Citrix delivery stack for Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop workloads running on top of Nutanix hyper-converged infrastructure.
SuperPacks leverage the partnership between Citrix, Nutanix and Comtrade to offer a superb monitoring and reporting tool for their joint customers. This offering provides significant value to ongoing lifecycle management by using Citrix application and desktop virtualization technology on top of Nutanix hyper-converged infrastructure and Microsoft System Center Operation Manager to build, monitor, and scale environments.
Comtrade Software is a well-known Citrix partner with expertise in providing monitoring solutions from Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM). Last year, Citrix made a technology acquisition of Comtrade’s SCOM Management Packs for monitoring and reporting on various Citrix products and features.
