Citrix Cloud integration - (formerly Citrix Workspace Cloud) –Liquidware Labs and Citrix have released and posted a ProfileUnity and FlexApp Lifecycle Template for Citrix Cloud. The template is immediately available for use via the Citrix Cloud Lifecycle Management (CLM) online catalog. The approved template makes it easier than ever to implement ProfileUnity with FlexApp in a Citrix Cloud environment. Initial installation and configuration of the solution are fully automated through the CLM Blueprint. Customers answer a few key questions and choose to deploy the solution in their own cloud environment. The Blueprint performs an unattended installation of ProfileUnity and FlexApp in the customers’ cloud of choice. Many public and private clouds are supported but options include Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS.

Collaboration with Citrix AppDNA – the Liquidware Labs Stratusphere monitoring and diagnostics solution is the perfect complement to AppDNA. The combined solutions comprise a complete application delivery planning strategy. Citrix and Liquidware Labs have recently worked closely together to ensure customers have a sound methodology in place that leverages Stratusphere for “run-time” metrics including known applications installed and applications in use. Customers then leverage AppDNA to assess the compatibility of applications that were discovered by Stratusphere.

"We continue to lead the market with the most comprehensive user workspace management suite available and are pleased to showcase our recent integration achievements with Citrix at Citrix Synergy 2016," commented Jason Smith, VP Product Marketing Management, Liquidware Labs. "Our ProfileUnity and FlexApp solutions deliver the only completely integrated approach to both UEM and Layering. Stratusphere continues to expand its extensive catalog of user experience metrics to set the standard for in-the-guest monitoring and desktop diagnostics in the industry.”

In addition to Citrix Cloud integration Liquidware Labs demonstrations will feature updates of ProfileUnity, FlexApp and Stratusphere including:
