Quickly and Accurately Ramp-Up Work-From-Home Workspaces
Today’s organizations need effective business continuity plans to provide uninterrupted operations in the event of a crisis or disaster. Those who have implemented virtual desktops to support Work from Home (WFH) options are better prepared for crisis situations that can disrupt day-to-day operations. Keeping users’ desktops, workspaces, and applications dynamic and scalable is paramount to continued worker productivity and business continuity. And if a current situation spawns an immediate need for WFH workspaces, Liquidware's proven track record of expertise across workspace platforms can support you to quickly ramp up capacity, without making critical mistakes that can hinder your progress.
Liquidware's methodology involves three essential steps to successfully launching WFH workspaces from the start:
Assess: Discover prime candidates for virtualization. Design desktop images and systems to reflect app and OS requirements.
Migrate: Harvest user profiles and data. Seamlessly move to new platform. Store in central or cloud storage. Backup and recover easily.
Monitor: Identify issues root causes. Troubleshoot quickly. Prevent or contain downtime. Keep users productive.
As the leader in Adaptive Workspace Management, Liquidware has directly helped thousands of organizations rapidly adopt new and agile desktops and workspaces across platforms, including Amazon, Citrix, Microsoft, and VMware. Liquidware solutions enable organizations to quickly implement and scale virtual workspace projects, enabling users to easily access them from anywhere should any business center become disabled by crisis situations. A well-designed desktop virtualization strategy ensures a quality user experience, maintains a consistent user environment across platforms, and delivers the applications users need to remain productive. When leading desktop platforms are implemented and scaled with Liquidware, your employees can log into their workspace from any compatible device, anytime, from anywhere with all of their familiar settings and applications needed to perform without interruptions.
User on-boarding of virtual workspaces is automated and always ready for quick burst scaling in the event of crisis situations or changing business needs. Liquidware solutions optionally leverage universally available and replicated cloud-based storage from Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. Support of these object-based storage platforms is innovative and ideal for cloud staging of your users’ smart profiles and data, enabling logins from new alternate desktops and locations at a moment’s notice.
Organizations which leverage Liquidware solutions can quickly migrate from physical Windows desktops to any platform, including Amazon WorkSpaces and AppStream, Microsoft WVD, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, or VMware Horizon. Employees can easily and securely work from home immediately.
