CHICAGO, IL: Liquidware labs, a provider for desktop transformation solution has announced that it has joined the Nutanix Elevate Alliance program, adding critical functionality to Nutanix’s hyper-converged infrastructure virtual desktop play.

The Nutanix Xtreme Computing Platform running on the Acropolis Hypervisor is recognized as Citrix Ready for XenApp and XenDesktop. Liquidware Labs solutions, also verified as Citrix Ready, add essential functions, including user environment management (UEM), application layering and user experience monitoring to the Nutanix/Citrix hyper-converged stack.

The combined stack of Liquidware labs, Citrix and Nutanix offers significantly enhanced power and performance, yet at the same time greatly reduces the complexity of launching and onboarding to next-generation desktops.

Nutanix delivers invisible infrastructure for next-generation enterprise end user computing, allowing IT to focus on the application and services that power their end users versus struggling with overly complex storage, networking and compute configurations. These solutions, when applied to end user computing projects ranging from windows 10 upgrades, to VDI, Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop allow administrators to accelerate time to value while at the same time optimizing end user experiences.

Liquidware Labs’ software solutions radically simplify the management of centralized end user computing models with Stratusphere FIT and Stratusphere UX for assessment and visibility, ProfileUnity for User Environment Management, and FlexApp for Application Layering. Customers can also take advantage of Flex-IO, a storage acceleration solution that can additionally increase IOPS speeds in virtual environments. All Liquidware Labs solutions already support Nutanix infrastructure, including Citrix desktops running on Acropolis-hosted virtual servers.
