    ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today will preview the Xen virtualization support in OpManager, its network performance management and data center monitoring software, and in Applications Manager, its application performance monitoring solution. The move lets application developers and IT operations teams in large enterprises monitor Citrix Xen hosts and virtual machines (VMs) for availability, performance and XenMotion activity. Live demonstrations of Xen support in Applications Manager and OpManager are available at http://demo.appmanager.com and http://xendemo.opmanager.com, respectively.

    ManageEngine made today’s announcement at the Virtualization Technology Users Group (VTUG) Summer Slam 2013 being held today in Brunswick, Maine. A sponsor of the event, the company will demonstrate the forthcoming Xen features in Applications Manager and OpManager. In addition, ManageEngine’s Rakesh Inbaraj will lead a breakout session, “Application Visibility – A Recipe for Conducting Successful Virtualization Projects,” at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.

    Dev Anand, director of product management at ManageEngine, said, “Though initially adopted only by service providers and hosting providers, Citrix XenServer has emerged as a staple in small and medium enterprises in recent years. OpManager and Applications Manager already support VMware and Hyper-V servers, and adding XenServer monitoring support to the mix was the next logical step in our hypervisor coverage.”

    ManageEngine Embraces Xen

    ManageEngine provides virtualization management on three fronts. For application developers, Applications Manager delivers a holistic view of app performance, end-user experience and Apdex score along with the underlying XenServer health. Meanwhile, data center or enterprise IT infrastructure managers can monitor their network, server and virtualization components via OpManager. Finally, CIOs and data center managers will find an integrated view of the network, server and storage; application performance; and end-user experience levels by using OpManager and its Application Monitoring plug-in module.

    Highlights of the Xen support in Applications Manager and OpManager include:

    • Automatic discovery of XenServer hosts and VMs via Xen API
    • Complete inventory and mapping of hosts, VMs as well as storage repositories and virtual disk images
    • Alerts delivered via email and SMS for Xen-related downtime and performance issues
    • Identifies XenMotion activity and updates inventory to reflect live migration of VMs as they move from host to host
    • Real-time map of Xen topology

    CNET’s From Old School to Tech Cool Contest asked our Facebook fans to share photos of old tech, with the ten most popular qualifying for a chance to win the Panasonic TC-PST60. This plasma TV is a 2013 Editors’ Choice and the only TV to ever receive a 5-star rating from CNET.

    Congratulations to Garret W, whose photo of an old-school portable computer won the contest. TV reviewer David Katzmaier selected the winner from among the top ten vote-getting entries.

    “There was a lot of great old tech among the final photos,” said David, “but I liked the ‘portable’ TRS-80 computer from 1979 best. With a monochrome monitor, separate keyboard, archaic peripherals and even a three-ring binder, all encased in a massive wood trunk complete with handles, it shows just how far computing and portable tech have come.”

    Thank you to everyone who participated and a special congratulations to the ten finalists with the most user votes. Check out their submissions in the photo gallery below.

    Intel announced earnings Wednesday that were in line with expectations, but the chipmaker is facing a daunting future as mobile devices further erode the PC business and its Atom chip vies for customers.

    “With its new, low-end Atom processor, Bay Trail, the company is gaining traction in cheap notebooks and tablets, but we believe this is at the expense of higher-end core processors,”said Piper Jaffray analyst Gus Richard. “Intel is late to the smartphone market and we believe high-end smartphone sales are starting to roll over. Intel is far behind its competitors in terms of cost and integration in smartphones, in our view. We do expect Windows 8.1 to drive a corporate upgrade cycle next year, creating a bounce in PC demand.”

    Intel’s new CEO Brian Krzanich said organization, strategic, and prioritization changes “will drive greater emphasis on our Atom-based products, bringing the full weight of our process and architectural leadership to the Atom family.”

    Asymco’s Horace Dediu illustrates the dynamics of Intel’s situation — he calls it a “PC calamity” — which is similar to the situation facing Microsoft, a dominant leader in the PC era facing a steep uphill climb in the mobile era.

    In the last six years, nearly as many iOS and Android devices have been sold as PCs and mobile ARM devices are selling at least 2.6 times the rate of Intel-powered devices.

    “In terms of installed base, a computing category that did not exist six years ago has come to overtake one that has been around for 38 years,” Dediu wrote. “The calamity for Intel has been that they have had no part to play in the new category. Perhaps that is because they had every part to play in the old category.”

    As you would expect, during the Intel earnings call Krzanich was optimistic about the potential for Atom processors to get traction in the fast-growing mobile space.

    “Look at it as a constant pushing of the accelerator down and the thing just gets faster and faster as time goes by. And so you’ll just see more and more strength of that Atom line as time goes through here, and it will be kind of just, you’ll look back and say well it’s obviously that the Atom line has truly become strong and they’ve got share in the tablet space,” he said.

    Intel trimmed its annual financial outlook from low single-digit percentage growth to to flat year over year.
