Of all the interesting notions a new year brings with it – fresh starts, the chance to predict the future, etc. – one of the things I have come to appreciate is the ability to look back and learn.
We’re changing our name to Liquidware!
I remember those days back in school when my teacher would ramble at the chalkboard explaining some new concept or theory and then my marveling at the equations she used to document the solution. Simple. Beautiful. I was (and am) a math nerd.
As many of you know the running joke in our industry for the past, heck, 8 years almost – has been that this year, no doubt, without question, slam dunk – is going to be the YEAR OF VDI. I … Continue reading
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.

Ahhh….the open road.
There really is nothing like getting out of the office and meeting face to face with with great partners, new and old peers, and of course customers. Being a small company – when the opportunity arose to join hyper-converged superstar Nutanix on its .Next 100 City Tour – we jumped as high as we could 😉 We will be at a select number of cities – and can’t wait to meet YOU.
I am encouraged that the cost of VDI is one of the things that will get us all to stop and think for a moment…what problem(s) are we really trying to solve? It’s a premium way to deliver workspaces, and it comes at a premium cost. Its not cheaper than a PC, and thats a good thing.
As traditional desktops continue to morph and become less dependent on hardware, we have seen increasing adoption of the term “workspace” to describe what people experience on their devices. Probably a more appropriate term would be “software-defined workspace,” which more clearly evokes a flexible and portable structure that represents the future of the desktop. Continue reading
