Liquidware Labs and Nutanix Partner to optimize Desktop Workspace Delivery

Liquidware Labs’ solutions provide unique value proposition to Citrix and Nutanix Acropolis environments that significantly increase ROI in these hyper-converged environments.

Chicago, IL, Sept. 1, 2015 -- Liquidware Labs, the leader in desktop transformation software solutions, today announced it has joined the Nutanix Elevate Alliance program, adding critical functionality to Nutanix’s hyper-converged infrastructure virtual desktop play.  The Nutanix Xtreme Computing Platform running on the Acropolis Hypervisor is verified as Citrix Ready for XenApp and XenDesktop.  Liquidware Labs solutions, also verified as Citrix Ready, add essential functions, including user environment management (UEM), application layering and user experience monitoring to the Nutanix/Citrix hyper-converged stack.

The Liquidware Labs/Citrix/Nutanix combined stack offers significantly enhanced power and performance, yet at the same time greatly reduces the complexity of launching and onboarding to next-generation desktops.  As a result, the scale, caliber, and use cases for a Liquidware Labs/Nutanix/Citrix bundle has been on the increase across an ever-widening spectrum of organizations.

“What we’re finally seeing, after years of manual configuration and design, is the perfect synthesis of integrated, scalable, and virtually invisible infrastructure,” said Tyler Rohrer, co-founder, Liquidware Labs. “When Liquidware Labs and Nutanix solutions are combined with world-class Windows desktop solutions from Citrix, it is quite a compelling ensemble for customers looking to deliver best-of-breed rich and robust user workspaces.”  Watch the video explaining why Liquidware Labs is your best bet in virtual desktop environments.

Nutanix delivers invisible infrastructure for next-generation enterprise end user computing, allowing IT to focus on the applications and services that power their end users versus struggling with overly complex storage, networking, and compute configurations. These solutions, when applied to end user computing projects ranging from Windows 10 upgrades, to VDI, Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop allow administrators to accelerate time to value while at the same time optimizing end user experience.

"Liquidware Labs hits the sweet spot in terms of offering enterprise class end user computing software to the world’s largest customers, at a price point that truly shocks the system,” said Andrew Mills, End User Computing Alliances.  “They were among the first to fully support Nutanix and Acropolis and their close collaboration with Citrix is a key indicator of where customers should focus.”

Liquidware Labs, already a longstanding Citrix Ready Plus partner, delivers a Unique Workspace Essentials Suite that supports rapid assessment, on-boarding, and managing users of next generation desktops onto such platforms as Nutanix- and Citrix- architected VDI environments. Liquidware Labs’ software solutions radically simplify the management of centralized end user computing models with Stratusphere FIT and Stratusphere UX for assessment and visibility, ProfileUnity for User Environment Management, and FlexApp for Application Layering.  Customers can also take advantage of Flex-IO, a storage acceleration solution that can additionally increase IOPS speeds in virtual environments. All Liquidware Labs solutions already support Nutanix infrastructure, including Citrix desktops running on Acropolis-hosted virtual servers.
