If you are a first time user of Application Layering technology you may be overwhelmed by the choices. You may also be wondering, “What applications should I start with?” In short, just about any application that does not require full application isolation is a GOOD candidate for FlexApp Layering, so your options are nearly limitless.
Some applications may require frequent updates or put stress on IO subsystems. Many line of business applications need to be ‘always available’ for the business to function. For DR, companies have invested storage replication for critical systems. However, this is not the case for virtual desktops which can be the most critical systems of them all.
In this video, I explain how Liquidware transforms yesterdays monolithic desktops into dynamic virtual workspaces. Harvesting the good, making your User Persona, Applications, Data and Policy portable, while removing obfuscation and delivering visibility into your most important resources. The bottom … Continue reading →

Smith and Kevin Cooke deliver an overview of Liquidware Essentials, which includes ProfileUnity to decouple user profiles from the OS, FlexApp to deliver Windows applications to any hosted virtual or physical desktop and Stratusphere UX to provide visibility to the desktop workload and user experience you are delivering.
Last week Citrix Synergy 2018 happened in Anaheim, California. This was the 21st Citrix Synergy by my calculation. I was at the first Citrix “Thinergy” in 1998 at the Swan Hotel in Orlando. The conference remains one of the most Windows desktop focused conferences in the industry.
In this article, Jason E. Smith speaks to our unique platform agnostic solution which saves and retrieves Windows User Profiles, Policy and Data directly from cloud native storage. Jason discusses the multiple cloud platforms that we support today, with the … Continue reading →
Spectre and Meltdown, and the newly coined category of speculative execution side-channel vulnerabilities, have created new challenge for workspace administrators—namely, the challenge of being able to report on an enterprise scale, quantify performance impacts and mitigate negative effects. A colleague of mine wrote specifically about the performance challenges in “Meltdown and Spectre – Minimize impact and avoid performance problems.”
Summary: Today we’ve announced the availability of options to have your user profiles hosted as a service on Object-based Cloud storage (Amazon S3, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure Blob). This industry first innovation is not BETA, it’s available now and only from Liquidware.
DaaS is now inevitable for most enterprises. The value proposition is maturing to the degree that DaaS is now viable for most organizations. Not all desktops will be the right fit for DaaS at first but the early mover desktops that Liquidware is seeing move to DaaS are call centers and task workers. Knowledge workers and power users will follow quickly as the world feels comfortable and DaaS offerings more fully mature. You’ll likely end up a hybrid approach – with some on-prem desktops and some DaaS desktops.
Het aantal afspraken bij verschillende zorg instellingen is de afgelopen maanden explosief gestegen. Naast de gebruikelijke uitdagingen rondom gebruikers tevredenheid, het proactief kunnen (keten) monitoren van kritische infrastructurele componenten en aanstaande migraties is men erg geïnteresseerd in de mogelijkheden rondom werkplek en applicatie lifecycle management. Een vaak ‘ondergeschoven kindje’, volkomen onterecht, als je het ons vraagt!
After almost two months of planning and preparations, on February the 26th we opened our doors to the first ever Dutch Liquidware partner training, here in Amsterdam. Joseph Ahn, our internal trainer flew in from Austin, Texas to provide four days, with an optional fifth of intensive training and certification around ProfileUnity, FlexApp and Stratusphere UX.
One of the many feature benefits in ProfileUnity is its ability to persist Office 365 Outlook Search Indexing from non-persistent desktop, DaaS, RDS, and Citrix XenApp sessions. This is very helpful to end users because in a non-persistent environment you would not want to keep indexing or OST files in the users roamed or streamed profile because the files would be quite large and cause a slow logon. If you turned on local indexing for each non-persistent Outlook session, the indexing process would need to start over again, causing many resources to be used each desktop session.
