Product Details

Rolling Restart® controls restarting or power-cycling Citrix servers on recurring schedules without impacting end-users. Servers are organized into groups on a central console, with each group having its own restart schedule and parameters, allowing you to match your business needs. Rolling Restart is installed worldwide, from companies with just a few servers to companies with servers that span multiple continents. Rolling Restart is compatible with Citrix Provisioning Services (PVS) and MCS.

Rolling Restart runs on VMs on-premise or in the cloud, running on Citrix Hypervisor (formerly XenServer), ESXi, Hyper-V, AWS, Azure, GCP, and even on physical servers. It runs on all Windows Servers versions 2008 R2 through 2019.

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. Severs can be set to restart only within a certain timeframe. Multi-threaded and fully scalable, Rolling Restart leaves scripts in the dust. It’s like comparing an F1 race car to a horse and buggy. Rolling Restart comes with reporting, full notifications, and statistics. There is even a Group Sizing Wizard to calculate groups and servers per group to get all servers restarted on a recurring schedule.

The culmination of over 20 years of Citrix restarting and worldwide installations has been incorporated into software you can trust and don't have to watch over.

Rolling Restart is professional, commercial dedicated software, backed by a full support staff and development team.
