Boot and Login Visibility: Make a Solid First Impression with Stratusphere

They say you only get one opportunity to make a first impression. In the world of end-user workspaces, that first impression is cast during the machine boot and login process. Keep Calm LoginAnd while login and boot delay affect both physical and virtual machines alike, it is the latter that takes the brunt of the finger pointing—“It must be VDI that is causing my machine to boot so slowly. It never did this before.” We all understand the last technology change must be the cause for any differences in performance of user experience.

This perception tends to be one of the top reasons why workspace transformation projects come under fire. Misdirected finger pointing is a challenge we all face, and one that Stratusphere UX can help you avoid. In this post and by way of example, we will present our machine boot and login process breakdown inspector. Among other things, it can help you cast that solid first impression and ensure you’re using the transformation process itself to help understand and gain visibility into boot and login delays.

Do You Dare to Compare?


If you check in from time to time on what Liquidware Labs is up to, you probably know we just recently released our Enterprise Class Application Layering solution FlexApp. You probably also know that the award winning ProfileUnity 6.5 is replacing legacy, overpriced, and complex User Environment Management strategies and solutions at a rapid rate. You also have probably seen tweets and heard stories about the massive scale Stratusphere UX is achieving inside and across the enterprise.

In fact – when measured by almost every — or any — conceivable metric – (cost, complexity, features, performance, scalability, updates, roadmap, etc.) the Liquidware Labs Essentials Suite (ProfileUnity, FlexApp, and Stratusphere) pummels the competition. We don’t just click a few extra boxes mind you – we set a new standard for our competition.   We are the ONLY company out there who is truly weaving workspace environment management into a solid integrated approach that applies across ALL desktops in an environment.   Who truly wins?  Customers and Partners.

So, when the opportunity came up to collaborate with Nutanix and Citrix, two leaders in the space and our Strategic Alliance partners, we went all in. Continue reading

Tales From The Front Series –Arbitration Forums

Recently, I was on a call with a Gartner analyst, who reported that many of the companies who had not had successful VDI implementations early on were revisiting the technology to see if they could get it right a second (or third, or fourth) time around.


No doubt about it…. virtualizing your desktops is difficult, and one of the main challenges stems from the fact that each organization’s environment is so different, that every one of these deployments will, by nature, require a customized path to success.

However, on the premise that if you study success, you, too, can learn to be successful, I have decided to do a series of blog posts on how some Liquidware Labs customers have won the VDI battle.
