The solution now provides focused support for AWS appliances. And a new patented CID key adds support for Amazon AppStream.
Stratusphere UX is now also featured on the Azure Marketplace. The solution includes specialized CID keys to support WVD, as well as RFX metrics on Windows 7 (RDP 8) so they can take advantage of the RFX protocol.
EoS for Windows 7 makes this a good time to plan a migration to the cloud with Stratusphere UX.
Anyone considering moving their Windows desktop workloads to any cloud platform, can leverage Liquidware Stratusphere to conduct FIT assessments to determine their readiness to move to the cloud. This information is critical in ensuring that the cloud environment has been sized properly to existing real-world desktop workloads and that the infrastructure can meet performance SLAs.
The end of Support for Windows 7 desktops makes this a critical time for customers to move workloads to Azure or pay stiff charges to continue to support physical environments. So NOW is a very good time to consider and plan your migration strategy for Windows 7 with the help of a robust monitoring solution.
A good first step – especially if you’re new to hosting workloads in cloud environments – is to conduct a Stratusphere assessment, which performs essential measurements of the existing environment and provides a FIT composite score that indicates the workload can move seamlessly to the new environment. Anything less than a perfect A score means that some level of adjustment or remediation may be necessary. This information ahead of time, saves countless hours and effort in the ultimate migration to the new cloud environment.
Expanded support for client devices and diagnostics / troubleshooting.
Some other extremely helpful additions to the 6.1.4 version of Stratusphere UX include:
- Support for 10zig clients
- New additions within SpotChecks, including detection of how many days a machine has not rebooted or “called back”, enhancing user endpoint security
- Direct link to the new https://community.liquidware.com site to allow for easier access to product information
The new feature enhancements, however, are very much focused on providing even more visibility into customers’ environments. Stratusphere UX API can support integration with data visualization, business intelligence and service desk platforms. In case you’ve not had a change to view it yet, we highly recommend watching this 5-minute video demonstrating this integration.
There are also some bug fixes to the Inspectors, Dashboards, Connector ID Key, Web UI and Database & Hub that have been fed back by users, and we’ve made improvements to some of the reports. A full list of improvements and updates in Stratusphere UX can be found in the Release Notes documentation.
