Deep-Dive into GSX for Microsoft shops

Posted by Meryll Moreau on Tue, Feb 14, 2012

The GSX team was in Paris last week for the Microsoft TechDays 2012 to showcase our solutions for Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint.Techdays logo

It was the first in a series of Microsoft 2012 events and it gave us the chance to present GSX Monitor & Analyzer business values to a highly qualified target audience of administrators, IT managers and C-level executives.

Below is a wrap up of what we presented :

  • What is mission critical and needs immediate attention in a Microsoft environment : how to manage your CAS Array, your CAS connectivity, your database, your DAG, etc.
  • How to reduce costs by targeting specific areas for corrective action, and by highlighting problems that need attention before they stop businesses from working.
  • Ensure performance of the SLA, through correlating input factors with the overall SLA. Troublesome areas are highlighted for quick resolution.

What seems to be the most insteresting for audiences is the fact that GSX goes beyond monitoring the servers to monitor services delivered to the end-user. Traditionally, monitoring has been considered a simple task that consisted of knowing whether a server was up or down or if a simple threshold had been crossed- GSX has always understood that what really matters is on what we could call the end-user experience.

The conferences put a spotlight on Windows Azur, Office 365 and of course Windows 8. Clouds were really pushed during the 3 day event - We also saw how to scroll through a page just by sending a tweet! This geek session was amazing.

Thank you to everybody that stopped by at our booth. We met a lot of people, presented a lot of demos and we hope to have changed the way people think of monitoring and reporting on Exchange and SharePoint.
