Adaptive Workspace Management for VMware Horizon VDI

Liquidware's solutions provide user profile and environment management, application layering and comprehensive monitoring and diagnostics for VMware Horizon VDI. Liquidware's offerings offer deep functionality beyond VMware's offerings.  When purchased in the Essentials bundle, Liquidware's solutions offer added value at substantial cost savings over VMware products.

Liquidware offers the following solutions to compete with VMware products for managing Horizon VDI environments:

 Advanced UEM that exceeds basic VMware UPM in Horizon Environments

ProfileUnity allows VMware VDI users to incorporate advanced user environment management functions into their Horizon VDI environments, far surpassing the capabilities of  VMware UPM.  ProfileUnity provides a universal profile format that can be used across VMware Horizon, RDSH, DaaS, Cloud-based and physical devices. Logins can be speeded up to 10X faster over VMware UPM.  Location and context-aware policy and profile capabilities integrate with MS Active Directory for maximum control of users and greater security. of workspaces.  With automated migration to Windows 10 and Server 2012r2 and Server 2016, administration is seamless while users can work unimpeded with downtime for maintenance and upgrades.

Layering that goes beyond VMware AppVolumes

FlexApp allows VMware Horizon VDI users to enhance their environments with application layering.  FlexApp not only outperforms VMware AppVolumes basic layering tool, but also works synergistically with VMware ThinApp application virtualization. This functionality allows administrators to create a comprehensive application delivery strategy leveraging the best technology required by each user groups' specific use cases. Applications can be delivered on demand with FlexApp's advanced "Click-to-Layer" feature. Users will experience a full-performance workspace, even as admins leverage non-persistent VMware VDI pools for better management and security.  Application volumes can be provisioned either as VHD or VMDK. FlexApp is integrated with ProfileUnity for controlled delivery to only the users who need the applications. Administrators can reduce the number of master images they need to manage.

Desktop Monitoring that exceeds VMware vRealize

Stratusphere UX offers more detailed user experience workspace monitoring than VMware vRealize.  Stratusphere UX is a stand-alone, independent desktop monitoring solution that can be used across all desktop platforms -- physical, virtual or cloud hosted workspaces, including Citrix, Nutanix, Microsoft Windows and Amazon. Stratusphere UX provides comprehensive desktop monitoring of the environment through dashboards and inspector views and provides essential built-in reporting not available in vRealize. An API allows Stratusphere UX data to be exported into other reporting platforms as preferred.   Adhoc views can be implemented as needed. Stratusphere UX transcends vRealize limitations, providing visibility into network service and applications, as well as application processes and usage. With true in-the-guest visibility for all users, machines and applications across all groups, hosts and data stores, organizations can optimize VMware Horizon VDI performance to meet and exceed SLAs. Stratusphere UX detailed metrics also provide needed visibility to diagnose root causes and troubleshoot issues to prevent unplanned downtime.

"ProfileUnity makes it easy to manage user profiles. When you want to make a change, you can do it immediately. That’s a big improvement over how we had to work before."
