Liquidware Labs Stratusphere Wins Gold in SearchServerVirtualization’s Desktop Virtualization Products of the Year


Alpharetta, Ga – January 13, 2010 - Liquidware Labs, the leader in Assessment and User Experience Management for virtual desktops, today announced that Liquidware Labs Stratusphere has been awarded Gold for Desktop Virtualization Product of the Year 2009. The awards are facilitated by Tech Target’s SearchServerVirtualization editors. AppSense earned Silver and Citrix XenDesktop earned Bronze in the same category.

Liquidware Labs Stratusphere and Liquidware Labs ProfileUnity speed adoption and lower the cost of rolling-out new desktop technologies such as VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop, and Microsoft Windows 7. Together the solutions provide assessment, profile migration, data migration, configuration, and user service level assurance, giving integrators and administrators an “On-Ramp” and ongoing user management of new desktop platforms. Stratusphere is available as a Virtual Appliance and as a bundle with ProfileUnity, providing a comprehensive solution for organizations adopting new desktops.

The awards are judged by the editors of SearchServerVirtualization. The editors commented on Liquidware Labs winning Gold in the Desktop Virtualization category saying, “Stratusphere enables an administrator to easily identify virtualized system bottlenecks with end-to-end tracking. Stratusphere goes beyond CPU and memory metrics to help administrators determine the best systems to virtualize. The technology uses a rating system of good, fair and poor not only for desktops but also for applications. This approach extends virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) beyond simple desktop virtualization. Additionally, a huge plus for Stratusphere is that it works with any virtualization platform: VMware View, XenDesktop, Hyper-V, even Virtual Iron Software.”

“We’re very pleased to have been awarded the highest award in the Desktop Virtualization category,” said Tyler Rohrer, COO of Liquidware Labs. “Our solutions assess, migrate, provide layered user profile management, and ensure user experience for virtual environments. To have the editors recognize our superior approach to these challenges in desktop virtualization with the award of Gold is an honor.”
