VDI & End User Computing Ecocast

Fri, 2017-06-23 12:58
At one time, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) was seen as a panacea. Once fully deployed, it would solve all of an organization’s desktop computing problems. No longer would users be shackled to their desktop computers. Now, they would break the bonds, enabling on-demand ubiquitous computing anytime, anywhere, and from any device. Reality, however, sometimes got in the way. Companies quickly discovered that the lessons that they learned with server virtualization didn’t always apply to the desktop world.

Liquidware Announces New Version ProfileUnity With FlexApp

Wed, 2017-05-24 09:53

New version includes exclusive Click-to-Layer options, FlexApp Session Layers and ProfileDisk for Citrix XenApp, and security and compliance management features.

May 24, 2017 – Orlando, FL – Liquidware today announced ProfileUnity with FlexApp v6.7, User Environment Management (UEM) and application layering software for Windows desktops and virtual workspaces. Significant industry-leading features have been added to both ProfileUnity’s core UEM features as well as FlexApp layering.

New FlexApp Features
New FlexApp features include exclusive Click-to-Layer capabilities, and Citrix XenApp/Microsoft RDSH session isolation for FlexApps.

FlexApp’s new Click-to-Layer option is an industry first. The technology allows instant delivery of FlexApp layered applications on-demand upon the application open action by a user. The user simply clicks on the application’s native icon on the Desktop or in the Start Menu and the application is instantly delivered via FlexApp and is ready for use. The option improves desktop readiness times compared to other layer delivery options because applications are not mounted unless they are in use. Now even dozens of layered applications can now be readily available in a user’s Windows environment without needing to actually layer every available application that may not be used during a user’s session. 

Citrix XenApp and Microsoft RDSH environments now have enhanced FlexApp delivery support in the new version as well through Session Layers. Now when FlexApp applications are delivered to a user’s published desktop, other user desktop environments are not automatically exposed to those applications. Every user’s desktop can remain unique, even for users on the same Windows Server environment. This approach allows individual applications to be layered to XenApp/RDSH servers rather than be published, allowing for more dynamic application delivery with lower maintenance.

New ProfileUnity Features
ProfileUnity’s ProfileDisk feature has also been extended to Citrix XenApp and Microsoft RDSH environments. ProfileUnity is the only UEM solution to offer a ProfileDisk technology with the granular management of profile Portability features, giving customers the best of both worlds. ProfileDisk acts as a profile container that handles large profiles with ease, such as those with Microsoft Office 365/Outlook caches. VHD profile containers also remain an option to handle Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox, Amazon, and other cloud based storage caching which may be otherwise too storage intensive for virtual desktops.

ProfileUnity’s core management console which also manages and entitles FlexApp layering has also been updated to include full featured role-based access and auditing. Options include full Administrator, Department, and even feature specific role access and limitations. Large enterprises with multiple departments or specific job responsibilities, such as application administrators and desktop support staff, now have options to entitle console users with specific access and rights. This new feature enables enterprise ProfileUnity deployments to remain secure while enabling staff with the rights they need to perform their job.

The ProfileUnity Management Console also now performs active auditing by user. This feature enables lead ProfileUnity administrators to have a fully automated change control process and documentation. The new active auditing feature is especially helpful for organizations that must meet compliance and security guidelines.

“With this release, ProfileUnity with FlexApp continues to lead the market as the only solution to feature fully integrated User Environment Management with Application Layering that continues to innovate and set industry first standards,” said Jason E. Smith, VP of Product Marketing for Liquidware.

“It’s great to see Liquidware continuing to push the envelope with new features, many of which are exclusive to the industry,” said Bob Allred, EUC Practice Manager, Right Systems, a key Liquidware partner.  “With all of the attention that application layering is getting these days as well as profile containers, Liquidware has a very well-rounded solution in ProfileUnity with FlexApp that many of our customers rely on.”

ProfileUnity v6.7 is being demonstrated by Liquidware at Citrix Synergy this week in booth #412. The new version is expected to ship next month.

Liquidware Rebrand Reflects Company Growth

Tue, 2017-05-23 10:00

Company drops “Labs” from its name; launches rebrand at Citrix Synergy

ORLANDO, FL. – May 23, 2017 – Liquidware (formerly Liquidware Labs) today unveiled its new name and branding at Citrix Synergy at booth #412.

While dropping “Labs” from the company name is a subtle change, it is a clear recognition of how the market and business of desktop transformation has evolved since the company’s initial foray into the market in 2009.  At that time, desktop virtualization was in its infancy, the technology was immature and did not work as anticipated, nor did it deliver the promised business benefits. However, in the last decade desktop virtualization, and associated technologies, is now mainstream. Liquidware’s removal of “Labs” from its name demonstrates that it and the market have collectively moved beyond experimentation and early adopter stages.

“We have ridden the rollercoaster of desktop virtualization over the last decade; with products coming and going and companies being acquired.  We remain the only independent, platform agnostic vendor in the market to deliver unprecedented innovation,” said Chris Akerberg, COO, Liquidware.  “Our solutions are increasingly being used by larger mid-enterprise to enterprise organizations who depend on our solutions’ advanced features, scalability and universal applicability in desktop environments.”

The name Liquidware connotes the fluidity of the company’s software offerings which seamlessly support all leading desktop platforms, whether on-premises, physical or virtual, or in the cloud.   This fluidity is a highly important consideration as it is widely anticipated that desktop environments will grow increasingly heterogenous, encompassing numerous OS, virtual platforms, DaaS and other cloud approaches. Recent research from IDC (1) states that the virtual client computing (VCC) software enabling hosted desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) will grow at a five year CAGR of 29.1% by 2019. Whereas, on-premises virtual client computing software will only grow at a five-year CAGR of just 2.8%. 

Robert Young, Research Director, IDC IT Service Management and Client Virtualization Software, commented, “With many organizations looking at a ‘cloud first’ strategy for their desktop deployments, we see the critical need for solutions like Liquidware’s.  Having management tools that are platform agnostic enables companies to avoid lock-in and adapt and morph as their business demands dictate.”
