What an event!
ControlUp is no rookie at conferences, and attended Citrix Synergy many years consecutively.
But boy, we’ve never had a Synergy like this!
We started out strong and kept rising – as a first time gold sponsor we had the largest booth in our history of shows, and our teams put in a lot of effort to make it visually amazing – and it certainly was.
See a quick 30 second recap of Synergy 2017
Unveiling ControlUp V7
Our teams demonstrated our brand new version, ControlUp V7, to hundreds of people at Synergy. Featuring great new functionalities such as a detailed storage view, showing all the real time metrics for the datastores, Vdisks and logical disks, and allowing for quick and effective troubleshooting of any storage related issues, our new cloud management capability which delivers AWS EC2 real time performance and cost metrics as never seen before, our new IT Dashboard with BI findings and many other great capabilities. We also unveiled our new NetScaler monitoring utility – new blog post about it coming soon.
Experiencing the Sysadmin’s life in VR
Always looking to surprise and excite, we decided to take the Citrix sysadmin into VR – with a fun, humorous VR movie showing how the admin troubleshoots issues in his Citrix farm using ControlUp – We won’t give you a spoiler here, just hint that cats are involved…
Over a two hundred people went VR with us!
ControlUp’s VDI Jedi Tech Trivia Game
But wait, there was even more fun to be had at our booth this year – a Citrix technical trivia game, featuring eight tough questions and one knowledgeable master who took home the first prize – a DJI Phantom 4 drone!
Best Of Citrix Synergy
And the winner is…. ControlUp! Yes, it was very satisfying to find out that we won the Best Of Citrix Synergy award for 2017 in the application and desktop delivery category. We do strive to be the best at what we deliver for our customers, and it feels good to get recognition for our efforts.
See You In Anaheim
We also gave out hundreds of spinners and “Saw It. Fixed It.” ControlUp laptop stickers, all gone in a flash. We hope you had a great Synergy too and we look forward to seeing you in Synergy 2018 in Anaheim, California!
