7 Ways Liquidware FlexApp Perfectly Complements Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops

As organizations continue to embrace Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (formerly known as XenApp and XenDesktop), they often encounter challenges related to application delivery, management, and user experience. Liquidware FlexApp is Citrix Ready verified and offers robust a solution to these challenges, making them ideal companions for Citrix environments, whether deployed on-premises or in the cloud. I’ve spoken to our partners and customers and refined seven key ways in which Liquidware’s FlexApp and FlexApp One enhance and streamline the user experience and application management in Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops environments.

Application Layering Made Easy
Liquidware FlexApp continues to introduce more and more enterprises to a groundbreaking approach to application delivery: app attached layering. This technology decouples applications from the underlying operating system, simplifying application management, updates, and compatibility. Instead of installing applications directly onto the base image or individual virtual machines, administrators can package applications in VHDX containers then assign them to specific users or groups based on their requirements.

FlexApp allows IT teams to the possibility of maintaining a single master image for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops while easily customizing the application sets for different user groups. This approach reduces image sprawl, simplifies application updates, and enhances overall image management efficiency.

Reduce Base Images, Streamline Application Updates and Rollbacks
Maintaining several images and related servers to cater to departmental app delivery is commonplace in Citrix environments, it doesn’t have to be that way with FlexApp. FlexApp dynamically attaches applications per user, even in multi-user environments, user A does not see or experience applications that are assigned to user B, and vice versa.

Keeping applications up to date and ensuring that updates don’t disrupt user productivity can be complex in virtualized environments. FlexApp simplifies application updates by allowing IT administrators to update applications within a single application layer/container. This update is then automatically applied to all users who have access to that application, streamlining the update process and ensuring consistency across the environment.

Cloud-Ready Application Delivery
As more organizations migrate their workloads to the cloud, having a flexible and adaptable application delivery solution becomes essential. Liquidware FlexApp seamlessly integrates with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops in both on-premises and cloud-based deployments.

With native support for cloud infrastructure providers like Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS), organizations can easily extend their Citrix environments to the cloud while leveraging the benefits of Liquidware’s application layering and user profile management.

FlexApp One
FlexApp features an exclusive alternative delivery format known as FlexApp One. With FlexApp One you can empower users to take apps offline where they can run the app locally on their laptop, regardless of connectivity. FlexApp One packages can also be deployed with popular mainstream software deployment solutions such as Microsoft Intune, Ivanti DSM, or any other software deployment tool.

Seamless User Experience with ProfileUnity
Liquidware ProfileUnity, a companion solution to FlexApp, seamlessly manages user profiles and settings, ensuring consistent experiences across various Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops sessions. ProfileUnity captures and stores user profiles, applications settings, and data, enabling quick and seamless logins from any location or device.

With ProfileUnity, users can enjoy personalized desktop environments regardless of the underlying infrastructure, be it on-premises or in the cloud. This ensures that user settings, configurations, and preferences persist across sessions, improving productivity and user satisfaction. The solution is compatible with Microsoft FSLogix Profiles, giving you an onramp to full user environment management with ProfileUnity.

Optimal Application Performance and Scalability
One of the biggest challenges in virtual desktop environments is achieving optimal application performance and scalability. Liquidware FlexApp significantly addresses these concerns by reducing the IOPS overhead commonly associated with traditional application delivery methods.

FlexApp’s flexibility enables you to place applications that require require low latency and more throughput on faster storage – and free them of being in main image. This approach reduces IOPS in the main image and enables you to use the fastest or most cost-effective storage available.

By leveraging advanced application layering and on-demand delivery, FlexApp ensures that applications load quickly and efficiently for end-users. This reduces the load on the infrastructure and enhances the overall performance and scalability of the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops deployment, ensuring a smooth experience for users, even during peak usage periods.

Liquidware Innovates while others Imitate
Liquidware has been first to market with a long list of innovations including:

PackageOnce(TM)- Once an app is easily packaged, it works across all supported versions of Microsoft OSs.
On-Demand with Click-to-layer – FlexApp first introduced apps on demand in 2017 with Click-to-layer. With this feature, if an apps is not clicked, it’s not attached.
FastPackaging(TM) – apps can be attached in about the time it takes to install them one time.
High-availability- deliver apps anywhere and anytime without load balancers.
Packaging Automation- unattended package automation. Package hundreds of apps automatically over a weekend while you rest!
FlexApp One- self contained apps as described above.

Liquidware FlexApp is an ideal complement to Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, offering revolutionary application delivery and management capabilities. From simplifying application layering and profile management to enhancing application performance and scalability, FlexApp empowers organizations to create seamless, efficient, and flexible virtual desktop environments.

Whether deployed on-premises or in the cloud, FlexApp’s adaptability and user-centric approach make it a perfect fit for organizations seeking to optimize their Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops deployments and deliver a superior end-user experience.

FlexApp Now Converts Microsoft App-V and MSIX apps, Keeping base Images CLEAN!

I am excited to announce the availability of FlexApp v6.8.5, our latest release that brings new life to the legacy Microsoft App-V format by converting them into FlexApps automatically. With this release, FlexApp now supports modern applications such as MSIX en masse, making it the highest-ranked application compatibility solution in the industry.

Deploy all of your Windows Apps with FlexApp and Keep Base Images CLEAN!

FlexApp containerizes virtually any Windows app into a portable virtual hard disk that can contain one or more applications. These applications are never installed into a Windows base image, but simply “attached,” appearing and reacting as if they were natively installed. This approach simplifies base image management and has won FlexApp several industry awards.

Enterprises with hundreds or even thousands of apps have found FlexApp easy to adopt, thanks to its fully automated packaging console. The console already supports every popular Windows application format installed and has now been enhanced to include Microsoft App-V and MSIX application formats. The benefit of converting any application to the FlexApp format is that base image management becomes very straightforward. A more general image can be leveraged across all users in the organization, while the apps they need are simply attached by user, group, or other context-aware attribute.

We are also proud to extend the functionality of our recent FlexApp One self-contained application format in this version. FlexApp One packages are ultra-portable and can be deployed by any means, including Microsoft Intune, cloud file sharing services, any software deployment solution, or leading third-party management control planes such as Nerdio Manager from Nerdio.

FlexApp One package creation is now easier than ever with integrated support in FlexApp’s packaging console. The console also includes additional features such as the FlexApp Packager API, predictive block caching, triggers for compliance use cases, and packager built-in rollback and auto OS optimization.

Additional features in FlexApp v6.8.5 include:

• FlexApp Packager API – third-party vendors, such as application testing software solutions, can now easily and directly package FlexApps with this new API
• Predictive Block Caching — Cloud or on-prem hosted FlexApp packages now benefit from predictive block caching to the end user session, enabling large applications to launch at native speeds
• Triggers — FlexApps can be applied or removed from users’ workspaces during the user session based on criteria that may have changed, such as location or time of day, supporting compliance use cases
• Packager Built-in Rollback and Auto OS Optimization — The FlexApp Packaging Console now features the ability to roll the OS back and that the OS is optimized for seamless packaging
• Additional new features include version control, merge layer capabilities, post-login support of app attachment, and more!

The latest version is now available for a free trial, download here.

BIG New Features Abound in ProfileUnity v6.8.5!

I’m excited to announce the release of ProfileUnity v6.8.5, the latest version of our leading user environment management solution. This new release is packed with features that enable further centralization of Windows application and user environment management, making it easier for IT admins to manage their digital workspaces.

ProfileUnity centralizes the context-aware deployment of any app including FlexApp, FlexApp One, MSIX, App-V. The new version also features universal folder and file redirection.

One of the most significant enhancements in ProfileUnity v6.8.5 is the ability to deploy and assign modern Windows applications of all types through the central management console. This includes Liquidware traditional FlexApp, FlexApp One, MSIX, MSIX App Attach, Microsoft App-V, and VMware ThinApp. With this new feature, administrators can now manage all their applications from a single console, reducing the need for multiple tools.

In addition to application management, ProfileUnity v6.8.5 introduces a new feature called Application Cloaking, which completely hides select applications from specific users while making them available to specified users based on a context-aware filter. This feature simplifies image management by allowing administrators to place certain applications in a base image while using that image across various user groups. Application Cloaking can be invoked on any ProfileUnity context-aware attribute, such as location, time of day, or any environment variable.

ProfileUnity has also gained two new feature modules: “MSIX” and “Microsoft App-V” management. These features enable the assignment of either MSIX or Microsoft App-V applications to any ProfileUnity context-aware filter user or group target, all without scripting. Application files can be on-premises or cloud-hosted, and MSIX App Attach is also supported for non-persistent use cases such as Microsoft AVD, Citrix Virtual Desktops, or VMware Horizon.

Another significant feature in ProfileUnity v6.8.5 is Universal Folder Redirection and Universal Registry Redirection. These innovative features open all Windows folders and registry keys to redirection, allowing administrators to redirect users’ customized settings from applications back into users’ profiles to roam with them. This is a notable industry first and provides Windows and application administrators with the flexibility they need to make changes to remediate applications that store user preferences outside the user profile.

ProfileUnity v6.8.5 is now available for a free trial, and you can download it here. We believe that this latest release will help our customers increase their productivity, streamline their IT management, and reduce their costs. We look forward to continuing to innovate and support our customers with the best digital workspace management solutions in the industry.
