Liquidware Labs Announces Key Channel Program Enhancements at VMware Partner Exchange 2012 in Las Vegas

Liquidware Labs, the leader in desktop transformation lifecycle solutions, today announced two new programs designed to better equip its channel partners with the knowledge and tools needed to take customers efficiently to next-generation desktop environments. The newly launched Knowledge Series is a library of educational videos that progressively articulate the major considerations of a desktop virtualization project, from POC to production and beyond. Liquidware Labs partners will benefit from the real-world practical focus on subjects that include state- of- the -market, typical project challenges, use cases in Windows 7 migrations application and user virtualization, desktop infrastructure optimization, as well as sneak peeks at upcoming technologies.

The AutoPilot™ PSO License Kit formalizes a structured license-use approach of assess, design, migrate and validate. The Kit allows partners to fast-track a proof-of-concept (POC) by identifying a group of appropriate virtual desktop candidates at a customer site, designing the correct image strategy and infrastructure for their needs, migrating users to the prototyped platform and validating that the VDI structure meets or exceeds the physical desktop performance. The kit includes 500 Stratusphere FIT licenses, 100 ProfileUnity licenses, and 100 Stratusphere UX licenses.

The AutoPilot PSO License Kit enables partners to:

  • Automate and greatly shorten the process of data gathering
  • Rely on extremely accurate, highly granular data derived from the customer’s current physical desktops to prevent guesswork and mistakes that can stall projects
  • Rapidly prototype image, host and storage designs based on real-world data
  • Quickly migrate select users to new platform; leverage a shared stateless image strategy
  • Prove the efficacy of the virtual environment to support users on par with physical systems

“We work with large companies every day, including top-tier state agencies, and they understand that the desktops and devices their users work on today are going to change. The scope of that change can be daunting,” said Todd Knapp, CEO of Envision Technologies, a long-time Liquidware Labs partner. “However, when we approach these projects armed with the Liquidware Labs suite of solutions, we can pragmatically walk through each phase and attack point issues to gain clarity. The AutoPilot™ offering is a logical and much needed from Liquidware Labs, which fast-tracks this process. By applying AutoPilot, projects can be right sized, appropriate users are brought into scope, and correct platforms and technologies are chosen. Pilots mirror real world production environments with performance that can meet or exceed the goals customers stated were important.”

“We launched Knowledge Series and Auto-Pilot programs to further supply our partners with the knowledge and tools they need to move through VDI projects rapidly, yet with consistent, predictable results,” said Tyler Rohrer, co-founder of Liquidware Labs. “We want our partners to tackle complex desktop virtualization projects with confidence knowing they can rely on Liquidware Labs methodology and solutions to get to successful outcomes every time.”

Liquidware Labs value to partners can be encapsulated in three main areas.

First, with a desktop transformation methodology and integrated solutions from a single vendor, partners can help speed the adoption and acceptance of desktop virtualization. They can close POCs/pilots faster and engage with more customers. The second focus is "user virtualization.” With ProfileUnity™ , Liquidware Labs helps partners reduce overall costs, with an affordable, award-winning, easy-to-use offering that allows clients to leverage a shared-image strategy to lower storage expense. Also, by virtualizing the user, the company can support easier management and desktop DR. Lastly, the third area focuses on validation and assurance of user experience. Partners are able to resolve many of the issues that arise in growing production environments, with VDI health checks, diagnostics and optimization that yield better ROI on virtual desktop projects,

“We are committed to providing our partners with the support and guidance they need to drive successful virtualization and PC upgrade projects,” said Rohrer. “We will continue to create quality value-add programs such as the Knowledge Series and AutoPilot programs to ensure our partners are equipped to capitalize on their opportunities.”

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
