Liquidware Labs is known for virtual workspace environment management but did you know that all of our solutions (Stratusphere, ProfileUnity, and FlexApp) run on physical desktops too? As a matter of fact, ProfileUnity got its start in 2005 exclusively managing physical desktops. The first customer was Blimpie International, the sandwich company. While other big name brand organizations soon followed in those early years, including Worley Parsons, Genworth Financial, and the University of Sydney, it became apparent that the problems of User Environment Management had been further accentuated by the world of virtual desktops and customers’ desire to delivery stateless pooled non-persistent desktops. However, our dedication to supporting persistent and physical desktops has remained central to our development. Even our FlexApp layered applications run seamlessly on well-connected physical desktops.
We’ve recently released Stratusphere UX version 5.8.5, and I could not be more pleased. This release is packed full of goodness, and benefits our customers in a number of areas,
such as: significantly lowering the barrier to diagnostics, enhanced ICA/HDX Citrix information and metrics, official support for the Nutanix platform, and application and process-level GPU metrics. In this post I’ll highlight a few details of each, but look for future posts that will dive deeper into each of these features and functions.
Obviously the big story coming out of VMworld 2016 was the Dell / EMC merger. It felt like the tone of every conversation was of uncertainty around what the future would be for all parties involved including VMware. Time will tell but there has been much speculation about the direction of the new combined company.
