Out since late May of this year, Citrix XenApp Power and Capacity Management Technology is currently available as a tech preview here.
iForum 2009 in Melbourne just finished and they demonstrated this technology in the closing keynote. The use of this technology can really make a difference in your bottom line in terms of power and cooling savings. It is a rethinking of XenApp’s mature load balancing technology and is another way of looking at server utilization (which was much of the argument for moving towards server virtualization a few years ago). This product, combined with Provisioning Server, is perfect for the environment I manage.
Our farm is over-built in anticipation of an event that would force most employees to telework, so our servers are typically underutilized. Check out the video below.
