Liquidware ProfileUnity with FlexApp v6.8.4 Now Generally Available

Sun, 2020-12-13 20:51

Latest version extends support for multi-sessions and auto-recovery of users’ profiles

CHICAGO, IL. – December 14, 2020 - Liquidware, the leader in adaptive workspace management, today announced the latest version of ProfileUnity with FlexApp v6.8.4 is now generally available. This latest version provides enhanced support for simultaneous multi-session logins, auto recovery of profile disks and FSLogix profiles, as well as management console ease of use features.

Virtual and cloud-based Windows desktops frequently see users login to more than one location, such as a physical PC, a virtual desktop session, and a multi-user environment, such as Citrix Virtual Apps or Windows 10 multi-session on Microsoft Azure. ProfileUnity has long supported multi-session logins with its Portable Profile approach, which is a highly adaptable smart profile that is cross compatible with any modern Windows OS version. The new release expands support for multi-user logins to ProfileUnity’s Profile Disk based profiles, which deliver an extremely fast login from virtual disk.

Multi-session support via ProfileUnity’s Portable Profile and Profile Disk is an industry exclusive. The combination of the two profile technologies enables automatic recovery of Profile Disk based profiles in multi-login environments. ProfileUnity’s portability also supports auto recovery of Microsoft FSLogix profiles in the event of profile corruption.

"With ever increasing work from home and remote working scenarios, ProfileUnity’s new features enable organizations to smoothly transition to a new environment," stated Jason E. Smith, VP Products and Solutions at Liquidware. "We’ve had many customers during the pandemic utilize ProfileUnity to migrate their users to a personal device at home. These new features add to the flexibility and agility of managing users remotely."

The new features provide the following benefits:

  • Multi-session VHD — Supporting simultaneous multi-logins and auto recovery of profiles
  • Portability and multi-session ProfileDisk templates — Automating the configuration of highly available profiles
  • Enhanced Portability Rule and Context Filter Managementt —enhancing ease of admin use with ProfileUnity with FlexApp

Liquidware Releases Stratusphere UX v6.5 - Now Available on All Major Cloud Marketplaces

Sun, 2020-11-22 21:29

New version also includes performance enhancements and expanded work from home metrics, including critical security visibility

CHICAGO, IL. - November 23, 2020 - Liquidware, the leader in adaptive workspace management, today announced the latest version of Stratusphere UX 6.5 is now generally available. Liquidware also announced Stratusphere UX is the only end user experience monitoring and diagnostics product certified by and available from all the major Cloud marketplaces, including Amazon AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure Marketplaces.

Certified for all Major Cloud Platforms

Stratusphere UX assembles the critical metrics needed to allow users to assess their legacy workspaces as a baseline to determine the best cloud provider and best tier to support their workloads. The solution gathers and provides key user experience metrics to support design of desktop images and infrastructure for all major cloud platforms. Key diagnostics ensure that the highest fidelity desktops are provided to users based on their requirements, whether routine task, or more complex knowledge or power users. Stratusphere UX is available from Amazon Marketplace, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure.

Significant Performance Improvements

The 6.5 version of the solution includes upgrades of CentOS from v6 (which will end of life in November) to v8. Additionally, the Postgres database has been upgraded to v12. These updates, as well as new efficiencies in API calls, have nearly doubled the speed performance in inspectors and data retrieval.

Security and Machine Health Metrics for Work from Home

New detailed Security and Machine Health metrics have been added to Stratusphere 6.5 too. Many companies are relying on Work From Home programs for which workers are using their own personal devices. Personal devices often have questionable Security controls in place. Therefore, it is critical to have insight into how well they are protected. Stratusphere UX 6.5 now includes detailed metrics on Firewall status, OS updates, Credential/Device Guards, Secure Boot/Secure Storage status, as well as Antivirus and AntiSpyWare updates and more.

New API Builder is GA

API Builder v2 is out of beta and is now GA in v 6.5. This version includes significant enhancements over the previous including:

  • Easily pick related metric column groups to mirror existing ADVANCED > INSPECTORS views
  • Ability to import, save, tag favorites, and maintain history of API calls
  • Improved navigation with NEW, SIMPLE/EXTENDED, COPY, & LAUNCH options
  • Enabling the AUTO-RESOLUTION option allows end users get updates to the API Call automatically. Added support for internationalization, i.e. support for multiple languages
ServiceNow Integration

Stratusphere UX has received certification with ServiceNow, and is now available in the ServiceNow Store. Certification by ServiceNow is only granted to apps available in the Store and signifies that Stratusphere UX has successfully completed a set of defined tests focused on Now Platform security, compatibility, performance, and integration interoperability. The certification also ensures that best practices are utilized in the design and implementation of Stratusphere UX with ServiceNow by enabling joint customers and partners to easily integrate detailed Stratusphere UX (User Experience) workspace metrics directly into ServiceNow’s industry leading interface.

"In these trying times, we continue to innovate and provide our customers with even greater insight into their desktop environments, particularly for remote working," stated Jason E. Smith, VP Products and Solutions at Liquidware. "We also continue to work with our eco-system partners, such as ServiceNow and the major Cloud platform providers, to ensure customers can deploy their desktops on whichever platform, or platforms, best suit their business needs."

Stratusphere UX is available from Amazon Marketplace, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure.
