Next Gen Desktops Creating New Business Opportunities for the Channel

We’ve recently signed a new distributor, Prianto, in the UK. They were established to address the market needs for specialized distribution, as the smaller, more niche organizations were being swallowed up by the large, fulfillment players. In the few months since we started working with the team at Prianto, we’ve seen the momentum with ongoing and new partner engagements swell. In particular, we are seeing avid interest in moving desktop workloads to the cloud, with an emphasis on Amazon Workspaces.

One such partner is Nuvens; they specialize in AWS and NetApp and have a dedicated VDI practice. Nuvens’ co-founder, Chris Noon, explains why they have chosen to become a Liquidware Acceler8 partner.

“Nuvens is an AWS WorkSpaces VDI specialist partner. We help clients move from both traditional desktop client infrastructure and Citrix environments into the AWS WorkSpaces managed infrastructure.

“At the start of the WorkSpaces journey it is critical that the customer has a complete understanding of how their applications are currently behaving and the resources used by the physical and/or virtual desktops. Stratusphere UX not only simplifies this process, it also provides us with all the information needed to produce an accurate estimation for the complete costs of running in AWS. We can also produce a baseline benchmark for the client, to demonstrate performance ROI before and after the project has completed. We all know that when dealing with users, change is sometimes deemed the enemy. How often have we heard, ‘This new system you’ve given me is sooooo much slower than what I had before.’? With Stratusphere UX we can easily negate these arguments by providing metrics that prove the new system is performing as well as, if not better than, what they had before.

“Liquidware Statusphere UX not only speeds up our POC to deployment times but also provides us with the accurate metrics of a successful project.”

Although AWS has a workspace application manager, WAM, Nuvens utilizes Liquidware FlexApp to layer applications as an alternative to WAM. Noon explains, “We use FlexApp to layer applications as an alternative to WAM as it gives us greater flexibility to deploy across multiple versions of operating systems.

“Liquidware, as far as we could find, was the only company that had the complete suite for the end-to-end deployment and on-going management of VDI infrastructure. There are other vendors that offer individual solutions but having one vendor supplying the complete solution reduces management overheads and project costs for our client. We are proud to be an Acceler8 partner and look forward to

working with Liquidware to deliver cost effective next generation desktop solutions for our joint customers.”
