ControlUp Expands VMware Solution Portfolio to Monitor End User Connectivity

ControlUp | May 13, 2021

ControlUp, a recognized leader in digital experience monitoring and enhancement, unveiled today an extended portfolio to deliver on the promise of a work-from-anywhere digital experience on VMware Horizon virtual desktop environments. New visibility into end-user connectivity provides device managers with the critical data they need to increase user satisfaction and efficiency wherever they operate.

"Remote work is no longer the "new normal"; it is simply the norm. This transition in workstyle has presented IT with new obstacles since they must now oversee not only a few offices or divisions, but a plethora of remote work locations "ControlUp's COO and Co-Founder, Yoni Avital, said "Previously, system administrators were unable to detect system failures by taking into consideration local performance concerns. We will now have the details they were missing to optimize the employee digital experience." ControlUp has expanded the VMware Horizon solution portfolio with the following capabilities:

ControlUp Remote DX – provides end-to-end insight into the digital experience of employees, regardless of location, by measuring local network performance, including Wi-Fi intensity and speed, as well as user device ISP connectivity measurements.

ControlUp Scoutbees – continuous synthetic transaction testing that proactively warns IT of problems with the application, desktop, and network resource availability and efficiency. The solution enables The Operations teams to easily locate the origin of any issues and resolve them before user efficiency suffers.

ControlUp SOLVE - visualizes the overall health of the end-user computing (EUC) environment end-to-end in real-time on a single dashboard, with the option to drill down to see accurate measurements for a particular segment of the infrastructure, all the way down to the users' session process level.

The ControlUp digital experience monitoring and optimization platform provide Them with flexibility and control by allowing them to track Horizon's virtual desktops and applications, as well as the Horizon infrastructure, whether on-premises or in the cloud. The solution includes pre-built automation and remediation workflows that minimize the time, effort, and expense associated with identifying, troubleshooting, and resolving VDI problems. ControlUp integrates data from the VMware Horizon API to provide deep insight into the entire virtualization stack, including hosts, storage, servers, and user sessions.

"Troubleshooting and quick remediation of VDI problems are difficult due to the large number of components involved, from the data center to the cloud to the endpoint," said Bharath Rangarajan, Vice President of Product Management for VMware's End-User Computing business. "VMware and ControlUp are working to solve these issues and regularly provide a great user experience to VMware Horizon customers."

Arrcus and VMware to Build Telco Cloud for 5G Services

Arrcus | February 23, 2023

On February 22, 2023, Arrcus, a hyperscale networking software firm recognized for its expertise in core, edge, and multi-cloud network infrastructure, is featuring its work with VMware at Mobile World Congress 2023. The partners provide a truly modernized telco cloud by allowing communication service providers (CSPs) to rapidly develop next-generation 5G services. The combination of the Arrcus Connected Edge (ACE) platform with VMware Telco Cloud Platform architecture offers CSPs end-to-end slicing for 5G, spanning from radio access network (RAN), multi-access edge computing (MEC) to core networks. By utilizing Arrcus' advanced traffic engineering technology, this capability allows CSPs to divide their networks into smaller, more manageable segments that can be effortlessly monitored and controlled. As a result, CSPs can now establish distinct policies and service level agreements (SLAs) for individual customers and applications across various network slices, significantly enhancing their ability to introduce new and innovative services. Additionally, both CSPs and their customers can expect faster service delivery and enhanced network scalability. The joint solution also provides CSPs with the advantage of network automation. CSPs can generate instances throughout their radio access network (RAN), 5G core, (MEC)/edge, and transport networks. Furthermore, the Arrcus-VMware solution delivers a service assurance platform that offers a transport network, 5G core, and RAN telemetry. This ensures that CSPs receive metadata on crucial network parameters. Arrcus CEO and Chairman Shekar Ayyar commented, "CSPs need truly modern infrastructure to gain the greatest value from their 5G investments." He added, "Arrcus' ACE platform and our partnership with VMware provide CSPs with an agile network overlay to automate network operations, expedite the delivery of new services on and monetize their 5G infrastructure."
