Over 10,000 virtual desktops under Centralis managed service contracts are now covered by Lakeside SysTrack, providing industry-leading performance data and real-time diagnostics
London, UK 19 February 2014 - Centralis, the independent desktop and application delivery specialists and Lakeside Software Gold Partner, has today announced the adoption of Lakeside SysTrack software across its estate of managed virtual desktops.
Centralis has adopted Lakeside SysTrack software for managed service delivery after using SysTrack as a discovery tool in desktop transformation projects, helping customers to migrate to virtual desktop environments. Centralis is contracted to manage 10,000 virtual desktops for clients. As well as monitoring user experience such as login and application load times, the software can provide detailed usage information and profiling, allowing organisations to track resource and application usage at an organisational, regional, departmental, location and even user level.
Using a combination of real-time metrics, historical information and customer specific benchmarks, Centralis' managed services team will use SysTrack to deliver a new level of proactivity. Ewen Anderson, Chief Executive Officer, Centralis explains, "SysTrack puts big data about the desktop in the hands of our managed service team - the better informed they are, the better service we can deliver to our customers. Knowing about a problem, and commencing resolution, before a customer reports it is exactly the level of proactive service our customers expect from our premium service."
"We are delighted that Centralis is building this new level of proactive managed service around Lakeside's unique ability to monitor and manage user experience through real-time analytics," said Tony Coleman, Managing Director, Lakeside Software EMEA. "This builds on Centralis' investment in Lakeside expertise and recognises Centralis as key innovators in in this area."
"Initially we looked at SysTrack as a means of understanding the customers' existing environment and saw a great opportunity to benchmark key user experience metrics before and after the project. This allows the customer (and Centralis) to prove the success of the project and that virtual desktops really do deliver better than physical performance when the design is right." said Ewen Anderson. "The next logical step was to use the software to improve our service to managed service customers, setting up thresholds and alerts to monitor performance and allowing immediate access to real-time and historical data about the users virtual desktop, applications and supporting infrastructure. The end-to-end view it gives us is fantastic and the level of detail for each virtual desktop, even in a non-persistent or multi-user environment, is vital to delivering against SLAs."
Centralis customers can now benefit from access to Lakeside's detailed metrics, analysis and pro-active capabilities either by purchasing the software or by having it run as a service under a Centralis support contract.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
