Liquidware Labs ProfileUnity FlexApp is a natural fit to extend the functionality of Microsoft UE-V. Both Microsoft UE-V and ProfileUnity FlexApp leverage Windows own native format for profile compatibility. Therefore users can move seamlessly to or from Microsoft UE-V even while they benefit from ProfileUnity FlexApp enterprise user virtualization features. Unlike other third-party solutions, users are not locked into a proprietary format. ProfileUnity FlexApp goes beyond Microsoft UE-V to provide critically needed features to Windows Desktop Administrators, including:
Dynamic Profile Assignment
Unlike Microsoft UE-V, ProfileUnity FlexApp provides dynamic profile assignment at any Windows desktop upon login, regardless of operating system version. Users can seamlessly move from Windows XP to Windows 7 or 8 and back again (Server 2003/2008 are also fully supported) while having one common profile that follows them. This native approach, free from any proprietary design or database, creates an environment where mixed OS can co-exist and users can migrate easily to a newer version of Windows without interruption. ProfileUnity FlexApp also offers an industry exclusive "migration only" option - which is a limited license use to migrate users to a new upgraded OS for one time. Desktop administrators can later move users and updated profiles to a full version of ProfileUnity FlexApp or return to Microsoft UE-V, roaming profiles, or to a local Windows profile.
Advanced Configuration and Folder Redirection
ProfileUnity FlexApp configuration and folder redirection features also exceed many basic Microsoft capabilities in Group Policies. ProfileUnity's context aware settings, which can link a Windows session location or type to a specific persona configuration, is a powerful option not available in Microsoft offerings. By using intuitive context aware filters, printers can be managed by location, applications can be assigned by group, and persona can be applied uniquely based on dozens of available conditions. ProfileUnity's folder redirection feature also has options not found in Microsoft's solution stack. Administrators can migrate unlimited amounts of user authored data prior to folder redirection in silent background mode without affecting user productivity. Built-in throttling keeps the data in transit from bogging down networks while an intelligent central logging feature lets administrators know when each user has been successfully migrated.
FlexApp Installed Applications
ProfileUnity FlexApp on-demand application delivery also provides a compelling reason to upgrade from Microsoft roaming profiles or UE-V. This innovative feature enables administrators to install departmental applications or provide users with controlled rights to install user applications into a Windows session without affecting the underlying base image. Numerous FlexApp applications can be "snapped" back into the Windows environment quickly at login. This feature set streamlines the management of virtual desktop infrastructure, lowers overall management of Windows desktops, and makes more users compatible with virtual desktop strategies. ProfileUnity FlexApp is also compatible with Microsoft App-V and other application virtualization solutions. Currently ProfileUnity FlexApp is available for non-persistent virtual desktops with plans to be expanded for physical desktops in early 2013.
