VMblog speaks with Trentent Tye of ControlUp during the IGEL DISRUPT 2020 event in Nashville, TN.
ControlUp is an ITOps analytics and management platform that helps ITOps teams to monitor, analyze and directly remediate problems in their on-premise, hybrid cloud and cloud infrastructures. ControlUp gives you deep visibility into the back end environment - Citrix/RDS/VMware servers or VDI. This capability provides a lot of information on how an environment is performing on the back end. They can even measure performance down to the application level.
ControlUp integrates into IGEL, providing visibility into the endpoint. This provides the capability to see how the endpoint itself is performing.
