Magazine’s Readers Vote for Their Favorite Products That Complement Core Microsoft Offerings.

Sept. 15, 2015 – Chicago, IL -- Liquidware Labs ProfileUnity with FlexApp was among the winners of the Redmond Magazine 2015 Reader’s Choice Awards in the Application Virtualization category, named alongside VMware, Citrix and Dell offerings in this segment. Redmond magazine selects its winners by circulating the list of finalists to its reader base of over 100,000 IT professionals who voted for the software, hardware and services that complement the core Microsoft offerings.

“These awards are voted on by our readers,” said Redmond magazine Editor-in-Chief Jeff Schwartz. “It's always interesting to learn what the most popular products are.”

ProfileUnity provides advanced User Environment Management (UEM) with FlexApp Application Layering options for Windows desktops whether delivered via physical or virtual platforms. ProfileUnity speeds overall logon times and streamlines user management, giving each user one unified User Profile with Application Rights entitlements and context-aware policies across any Windows OS and on any desktop delivery platform.  Significant new features in the product include:

  • FlexApp Layering can now layer even complex applications that require drivers and services, even on a per user basis. Other solutions are limited to machine level application assignment.
  • FlexDisk VMDK option for VMFS storage, providing up to 58 VMDK per user, more than any other layering solution.
  • ProfileDisk technology speeds logon. VHD-based or VMDK- based ProfileDisks dramatically speed user logon times by seamlessly mounting the entire user profile from disk, supplying the benefits of native profile performance with instant delivery of a user profile.
  • Point and Click Clustering for HA offers highly-available and highly scalable clustered configuration has been introduced for ease of HA setup. ProfileUnity includes exclusive point-and-click clustering, removing the requirement for complex setup, network load balancers or external database clusters.

“We are very pleased to receive this recognition from Redmond magazine readers,” said Jason E. Smith, Director of UEM Products at Liquidware Labs.  “The voters are real-world administrators in Microsoft environments, who are looking for best-of-breed solutions that can address issues like manageability and control over Windows workspaces.   This award again validates that we are shortlisted with other leaders in this space by those desktop administrators who require advanced desktop management solutions.”
