VMblog visits the Liquidware booth during Citrix Synergy 2019 to take a look at the new features in FlexApp, Profile Unity and Stratusphere UX.
User experience remains a critical factor for both productivity and employee motivation. Stratusphere UX has in-depth diagnostics and monitoring to troubleshoot but also to assist helpdesks in demonstrating that a user’s new workspace is performing as it should. Due to Stratupshere's baseline capability, you can show a user what they had before and what they now have is better than their previous environment.
ProfileUnity and FlexApp are enabling many workspaces to move to the cloud. By seamlessly moving and managing your users' profiles and layered applications between physical, virtual or cloud your users don't need to know where their actual 'desktop' is, just that they can access it and their applications when they need them. FlexApp enables just in time application delivery based on context awareness, keeping base images to a minimum and saving time and money. With many companies having a 'cloud first' strategy now also means their desktops too.
ProfileUnity and FlexApp both leverage object-based storage without the use of Server Message Blocks (SMB). By saving and hosting profiles and layered applications to object-based storage we are readying organizations for seamless DaaS transitions, providing high availability built in from multi-clouds and overall lowering the cost of storage.
