I have spent most of my career discussing applications and
how to manipulate them. It is safe to say that 2019 has seen some techtonic
shifting in the application space.
Microsoft, has surfaced (no pun intended) to mix it up in
the application space again. MSIX is a new
application installation format with a goal to become the new defacto standard
for application packaging baselines.
The release of FlexApp version 6.7 this week marks a tremendous set of milestone achievements for Liquidware. In a competitive industry, it is important for software platforms to constantly evolve or run the risk of being replaced. This release builds upon the leadership position that FlexApp has held for a while now.

As we approach VMworld 2016, there has been a tremendous amount of excitement building around the solutions from Liquidware Labs. We just released version 6.5.5 of ProfileUnity with FlexApp back in June, here are a few of the highlights:
Liquidware Labs is announcing the release of a new WP “VMware UEM and App Volumes Overview Comparison with Liquidware Labs ProfileUnity and FlexApp” White Paper.

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 →
2015 was an impressive year for product announcements and innovations. Liquidware Labs re-released the FlexApp Layering platform after a significant architecture shift. Customer adoption and validation for FlexApp has been extremely positive. Looking back, something seemed to be missing in the EUC space with respect to application lifecycle management. Application virtualization started off strong but has tapered off lately, primarily because of compatibility challenges. The timing for a platform like Application Layering was perfect as companies push further towards desktop integration with the “Cloud”. FlexApp Layering is poised to take its place as one of the pillars of the application layering space.
The FlexApp Layering Technical FAQ has been released by Liquidware Labs. As customers look to adopt and implement the FlexApp technology, they are bound to have questions. Questions within the FAQ are divided into various sections for faster reference:
FlexApp Layering Requirements
FlexApp Layering Installation and Configuration
Creating FlexApp Layers
Updating FlexApp Layers
FlexApp Layering with remote Desktop Session Hosts / Citrix XenApp
One of the potential challenges that application layering technology creates is around interlayer application conflicts with respect to the corresponding host operating system. In an effort to address these potential challenges, Liquidware Labs developers have created a feature called Micro-Isolation.
