Powerco deploys AppSense Performance Manager to maximise Citrix server utilisation
Powerco has implemented AppSense Performance Manager to maximise its Citrix server utilisation, consolidating 47 physical servers to 25.

Powerco is New Zealand's second largest electricity and gas distribution company. Its network area spreads across the upper central and lower central North Island servicing approximately 400,000 consumers representing 46 per cent of the gas connections and 16 per cent of the electricity connections in New Zealand.

AppSense Performance Manager enables increased server capacity usage by limiting the resources available to any application, helping organisations squeeze more onto each server without negatively impacting the user experience. Using AppSense, Powerco has identified its most resource intensive applications and limited the resource available to them, ensuring every user has access to a consistent level of server capacity regardless of other activity on the server.

By optimising resource use and consolidating servers, AppSense Performance Manager is also providing Powerco with benefits across its entire IT infrastructure, including reduced power consumption, a lower carbon footprint and reduced cooling and hardware costs.

Huw Griffiths, Powerco's server team leader commented; "We knew our 47 Citrix servers were not running at full capacity - we needed to make the hardware supporting Citrix applications more efficient, while still maintaining the same services. AppSense has helped us squeeze more users onto our existing Citrix servers without the need to virtualise our infrastructure or compromise business critical applications. AppSense has been simple to implement and manage and sits well within our Citrix infrastructure."

Sean Walsh, General Manager for ANZ at AppSense commented, "With companies increasingly looking to maximise IT infrastructure usage, increasing efficiency of system resources is becoming a business imperative. AppSense Performance Manager solved Powerco's key objective of improving server capacity without virtualising its Citrix environment. By making its servers work more efficiently, Powerco is benefiting from reduced hardware and maintenance costs and experiencing financial savings akin to those achieved by virtualisation."
