Liquidware Labs™ Launches New Program for Technology Alliance Partners

Atlantis Computing™, Pivot3® and WHIPTAIL™ Join Company's "Prove Your Performance" Program

CHICAGO, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Liquidware Labs, the leader in desktop transformation lifecycle solutions, today announced the launch of  its "Prove Your Performance" (PYP) Program for Technology Alliance partners who are seeking to provide hard objective data to customers to reinforce the superiority of their products in virtual desktop environments. 

"Our 'Prove Your Performance program' is simplicity itself," said J. Tyler Rohrer, Liquidware Labs co-Founder, who heads Alliance partner initiatives. "Our Technology Alliance partners can use our products to provide a crystal clear 'before-and -after' validation proving their products' performance gains.  We want to institute validation as a best practice in virtual desktop environments thus providing organizations with the confidence to rapidly scale and expand their use of this game-changing technology."

Inaugural partners WHIPTAIL, Atlantis Computing and Pivot3 have joined the program, which provides these partners with no-cost licenses of Liquidware Labs Stratusphere UX to deliver validation of their products in POCs, pilots and production.  The PYP program is only open to ecosystem vendors whose products support resource capacity, such as storage and memory, in VDI infrastructures.

Partners Welcome Liquidware Labs PYP Program

"With Atlantis ILIO™, customers can run very high performance virtual desktops using only server RAM as primary storage – and no shared storage or SSDs. Deployments are fully automated and scale with just the addition of new servers as there is no storage and no storage traffic on the network. With Stratusphere UX, our customers have been measuring their physical PC performance and compare the virtual desktop user experience before and after Atlantis ILIO with exact metrics that validate the cost savings and performance that our solutions deliver at very large scale."

Bernard Harguindeguy, CEO
Atlantis Computing

"WHIPTAIL was honored to be selected as an inaugural invite only partner for the PYP Program. Time and time again we see our all-flash storage arrays saving VDI projects from both a performance and cost perspective and the ability to validate that now using Stratusphere UX brings tremendous value to our pilots and rollouts."     

Dan Crain, CEO
WHIPTAIL

"At Pivot3, our mission is to provide our customers with smooth and seamless pilot to production rollouts of high performance VDI projects.  We are pleased to work with Liquidware Labs as a Technology Alliance Partner in their PYP program. This program will allow us to benchmark and provide concrete evidence of Pivot3's performance improvements in customers' environments."

Olivier Thierry, CMO
Pivot3

Liquidware Labs is still the only vendor in the VDI industry to offer a complete software suite to support the key phases in a virtual desktop deployment.  These critical phases include assessment, design, user migration and virtualization, application virtualization and validation / diagnostics.

Gartner Reports Value of Liquidware Labs Products for Storage Planning

Recently the value of Liquidware Labs integrated approach was highlighted in the Gartner report: "How to Implement Storage for Virtual Desktop Deployments," authored by analyst Matthew Brisse (Jan. 14, 2013).  

According to the Gartner report:

"A successful SHVD deployment enables IT organizations to deliver virtual desktops to multiple devices helping boost operational efficiency and security, while enhancing end-user productivity and business agility. Storage is a critical component to this success. IT decision makers often underestimate storage complexity associated with SHVD environments. Planning and understanding the various storage options for SHVD is critical for deploying the right storage architecture, at the right price point, when compared with traditional PC drive pricing."

Liquidware Labs products were mentioned with regard to their value for assessments (Stratusphere FIT), user-installed applications (FlexApp), and user experience optimization and diagnostics and reporting capabilities (Stratusphere UX) as being critical to correctly planning capacity and sizing storage and deploying storage correctly.  As a result, key VDI storage providers are leading the charge in deploying Liquidware Labs products to validate their effectiveness.
