ProfileUnity™ and VMware View 5™ revolutionize the end-user experience and persona management with complementary profile solutions
LAS VEGAS, NV., September 1, 2011 - Today at VMworld® 2011, Liquidware Labs, the leader in desktop transformation solutions, announced that customers can achieve certified, synergistic improvements in profile management by combining VMware View 5™ profile acceleration with ProfileUnity™ from Liquidware Labs.
The combined solutions offer a "one-two punch" for optimizing user profiles in VMware View desktops. While the new profile-management capabilities in View 5 focus on radically improving login and logoff speeds, ProfileUnity™ further advances the solution by giving desktop administrators control of user-persona management for both physical and virtual environments, thus addressing a key challenge faced by customers to manage mixed environments.
"Liquidware Labs ProfileUnity™ combined with profile acceleration in VMware View™ 5 is a major step forward for large and small virtual desktop projects," said Vittorio Viarengo, Vice President, End-User Computing, VMware. "Liquidware Labs has built solutions that complement the core functionality of VMware View and VMware ThinApp™. With the release of VMware View 5, joint ProfileUnity™ customers will have unprecedented control over their desktop deployments, setting a new standard in speed, performance, and end-user experience."
Not only does ProfileUnity offer unique features to deliver user, setting, and data migrations, which are critical to support the high performance that drives user acceptance, the solution also supports the administrators' ability to publish VMware ThinApp™ virtualized applications to users in physical, virtual, or laptop deployments. In the release of ProfileUnity v.5.0, administrators will further have the ability to manage user-installed applications. The feature enhancements in ProfileUnity 5.0, being demonstrated at VMworld 2011, Las Vegas, allow a wider spectrum of applications to run in virtual desktop environments and applications to follow users-even when using stateless non-persistent environments or physical machines.
"As VDI deployments worldwide reach significant scale, customers look to VMware to provide revolutionary products like VMware View™ 5 to tackle the demands of thousands of users logging into virtual desktops," said Jason Mattox, CTO of Liquidware Labs. "The needs of these customers also drive us at Liquidware Labs to provide the best products, such as ProfileUnity™, to extend VMware View to the ultimate in speed and management."
ProfileUnity™ is available today at a list price of $24 per user and can be used in physical, virtual, and server-based computing desktop deployments and migrations between V1 and V2 Profiles (XP + Windows7). For more information, visit www.liquidwarelabs.com or contact Liquidware Labs Sales.
