V3 Systems Partners with Liquidware Labs™ to Offer Flexible Application Delivery on High-Performing Windows® Virtual Desktops

The company plans to bundle Liquidware Labs’ ProfileUnity™ FlexApp™ with its virtual desktop appliances providing VDI customers with unprecedented end-user freedom without losing the critical management and control advantages of desktop virtualization

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (July 29, 2013) – V3 Systems, the leader in cloud-delivered virtual desktop computing, today announced it will bundle Liquidware Labs ProfileUnity FlexApp with certain V3 purpose-built virtual desktop server appliances. ProfileUnity FlexApp is quickly becoming the usermanagement solution of choice for Windows desktops. The solution offers a universally compatible user profile that spans Windows XP to Windows 8 desktops for greatest applicability to customer environments. FlexApp supports application virtualization without isolating or encapsulating the application. Instead, by virtualizing the installation of applications, FlexApp bypasses the limitations of isolation. FlexApp applications “look” native to the Windows OS and to other applications; therefore it can support many applications that could not otherwise be virtualized.

Including ProfileUnity FlexApp on V3 virtual desktop server appliances will allow end users to install their own applications as needed on individual high-performance virtual Windows desktops without jeopardizing the management and control benefits IT administrators gain from deploying VDI in their environments.

V3 will provide pre- and post-installation consulting and support to assist customers in successfully deploying V3 high-performing virtual desktops with ProfileUnity FlexApp.

“With the option of adding ProfileUnity FlexApp to a V3 deployment, our customers get the best of both worlds,” said Jim Sweeney, President of V3 Systems. “IT admins still get the simplicity and security of deploying fast, easy to provision, easy to manage, productivity-boosting virtual desktops, while end users get the ability to personalize and customize their individual virtual desktop as desired.”

“We are very pleased to partner with V3 Systems and support their use of ProfileUnity FlexApp on their virtual desktop appliances. We see this move as both strengthening V3’s offering and allowing more types of companies to benefit from the advantages that desktop virtualization offers,” said Tyler Rohrer, co- Founder of Liquidware Labs. “Adding strong user customization capabilities to V3’s desktop cloud computing provides customers with a best-in-class solution that can reduce their desktop OPEX and mergercosts, yet still allow them to benefit from V3’s expertise in deploying cutting-edge desktop technologies like ProfileUnity FlexApp.”
