User Data Synchronization Featured in Release of Liquidware Labs ProfileUnity v4.5

New feature seamlessly harvests user documents and files from existing desktops to VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Windows 7

ALPHARETTA, Ga., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Liquidware Labs, the leader in Assessment and User Experience Management for next generation desktops, today announced the availability of Liquidware Labs ProfileUnity v4.5 with exclusive user data synchronization capabilities to migrate desktop documents and data, enabling organizations to further speed adoption and ease management of new desktop technologies such as VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop, and Microsoft Windows 7.

ProfileUnity Pro provides comprehensive user profile management and configures user settings during logon. The new background block-level data synchronization feature in v4.5 enables user data (documents, files, etc.) to be harvested from existing Windows desktops by synching the data to a central data store where it can then be accessed on-demand from the user's existing and next generation desktop, regardless of architecture -- VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop, or a physical Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 PC.

Data is migrated in the background using block-level transfer during a user's session through a centrally managed folder redirection and synchronization module in ProfileUnity Pro. File migration can be optimized through a built-in throttling feature that ensures that network traffic is not affected. The new user data synchronization feature is especially useful in invoking best practices for desktop data storage, speeding the adoption of next generation desktops, and as part of a comprehensive desktop disaster recovery plan. Data is also made available to laptops through offline folders. The solution runs with zero touch and there is no software to install or manage on each desktop.

Other new features in ProfileUnity Pro v4.5 include enhanced ease-of-use features and installation as part of the Liquidware Labs Stratusphere virtual appliance. The virtual appliance installs quickly into any environment, and also includes access to Liquidware Labs Stratusphere Assessment and User Experience diagnostics solutions (licensed separately).

"Organizations are encountering many challenges in actually moving user data to new desktop technologies such as Windows 7 and VDI solutions from VMware and Citrix," said Jason E. Smith, VP of Marketing for Liquidware Labs. "Data that resides on existing desktops is all too often ignored or poorly migrated during transitions. ProfileUnity Pro v4.5 removes this challenge by automating the process and ensuring that mission critical data is properly synchronized, according to best-practices, on a network store where it can accessed by the user with any existing or new desktop in the future."

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
