CRN Virtualization 50
Selected by CRN editors, the 2013 CRN Virtualization 50 recognizes the vendors that are addressing an emerging market need for the channel and offering the most innovative solutions. The list is designed to help solution providers identify and evaluate virtualization products and programs to help grow their business.
Liquidware Labs is helping to change the way companies deliver desktops. With its unique Stratusphere™ solutions, desktop administrators can gain much more visibility into the applications, processes, users and desktop resources that are utilized throughout an enterprise. The company’s innovative ProfileUnity™ FlexApp™ solution decouples user persona, data and applications from the OS and hardware to support flexible anytime, anywhere, any device delivery of mobile desktops. All of the company’s solutions are available on a low overhead virtual appliance and are direct-to-use with minimal time for installation, configuration and setup. Unlike many of its competitors who need to support legacy software built for physical environments, Liquidware Labs is a true virtualization pure-play 3rd party software provider for both physical and virtual desktops. Since its founding in 2009, Liquidware Labs has built a substantial global network of VAR and distribution channel partners, who have made a commitment to developing deep expertise in the company’s desktop virtualization transformation methodology and solutions.
“Solution providers have plenty of options when it comes to virtualization technology. However, understanding the diversity of vendors and their solution nuances can be incredibly daunting,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. “CRN’s annual list aims to cut down the noise and highlight the most innovative technology vendors that are not only delivering powerful virtualization technology, but also helping VARs capitalize on the market opportunity for such solutions.”
“We knew that virtualization held the key to addressing the desktop and application sprawl that is becoming more and more unmanageable and insecure. When the only way you can scale is to add more boxes, it’s clear you will escalate more problems at the same time,” said David Bieneman, CEO and co-Founder of Liquidware Labs. “Since 2009, our single goal has to been to transform and simplify desktop delivery with innovative virtualization technologies, and I am glad to say we are leading the pack with software that successfully reduces complexity and overhead, while advancing manageability and scalability. We also have built a network of channel partners who are exceptional in their understanding of, and expertise in, applying our products to create best-practice desktop architectures. We are very pleased by the recognition from UBM and CRN, in grouping us with other world-class leaders in virtualization.”
