Product Details

ShutdownPlus® Rolling Restart™ controls Restarting or Power-cycling Citrix servers on recurring schedules without impacting users. Servers are organized into groups on a central console, with each group having multiple built-in restart patterns and timeframe options. This flexibility allows the software to match business needs, from the most basic installation of just a few servers to multi-continent enterprise installations.

Rolling Restart runs on physical servers or VMs on XenServer, ESXi, Hyper-V, or Oracle. It’s compatible with Citrix Provisioning Services. Fully scalable with the Rolling Restart Console, it’s built for any sized company. WM Software’s own patent-pending technology gives groups an array of restart or power-cycle choices (single queued, multiple queued, simultaneously, or individually) with users optionally notified, among dozens of other options. Groups can even be kept to restart within a certain timeframe. There are many internal pre-restart functions that simply can’t be done with a script - these are included in Rolling Restart as it avoids the inadequacies and inherent problems of scripts. Rolling Restart comes with full notifications and statistics, and it even has a built-in Group Sizing Wizard to calculate how many groups and servers per group to configure so all servers get restarted inside a recurring schedule.

Rolling Restart is professional, dedicated software, backed by a full support staff and development team. It runs on all versions of Windows Servers (2003 thru 2012 R2) and all versions of XenApp/XenDesktop.
