Liquidware Labs, a provider of desktop transformation solutions, announced that the new Stratusphere UX has now become a supported component of VMware branch office desktop architecture, including VMware View, VMware vCenter Operations Manager and VMware Mirage.
Stratusphere UX provides critical visibility into performance of a highly distributed remote branch office infrastructure, ensuring that IT staff can provide a solid local worker experience in a secure, efficient and affordable manner.
The service requires a minimum of ongoing management and support overhead. It provides a single-pane-of-glass monitoring of user experience across VMware View and VMware Mirage delivered desktops, as well as those delivered on physical PCs or other devices.
The solution best supports the needs of remote office operations.
“Stratusphere UX is the solution of choice for leading companies because of its depth of data and correlation,” said J. Tyler Rohrer, cofounder of Liquidware Labs. “Publishing desktop data into VMware vCenter Operations via our new Stratusphere UX Adapter technology facilitates analysis, planning, trending, and alerting, which meets a critical need for VMware enterprise clients.”
Fortune 500 giants Aetna, Home Depot, MetLife, TIAA-CREF and Wal-Mart are using Stratusphere UX.
Some of the benefits of Stratusphere UX include simplified management and reaction to user experience issues, greater desktop virtualization ROI and economies of scale, and reduction in desktop administrator time on maintenance and troubleshooting activities.
“By partnering with VMware in this initiative, Liquidware Labs will help ensure employees have fast, secure access to applications and data to maximize productivity no matter where they are located,” said Mason Uyeda, director of Technical Marketing, End-User Computing, VMware.
“The Stratusphere UX Adapter and the newly available metrics and custom dashboards will be a welcome addition for desktop administrators seeking to gain control and optimize the productivity of their remote and branch office workers,” Uyeda added.
