Liquidware Labs Launches Managed Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Alliance Program

Alliance Brings Together Key Technology Vendors, Enables Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Implementation

ALPHARETTA, Ga., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Liquidware Labs Inc. (LWL), the market leader in virtual desktop and application assessment and diagnostics, today announced the launch of its Managed Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Alliance Program to enable Service Providers in Hosting, Outsourcing and Data Center businesses to offer VDI assessment, diagnostic and migration services based on LWL's Stratusphere(TM) platform. The company also unveiled that Perot Systems (NYSE: PER) (www.perotsystems.com) has signed as one of the first members of LWL's Managed VDI Alliance Program.

"Many enterprises wanting to leverage virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) are concerned with its complexity and cost, so we are turning to trusted Service Providers with greater expertise, resources and specialties. Using Stratusphere from Liquidware Labs, Service Providers such as Perot Systems can enable customers to gain the benefits of VDI while reducing cost and complexity," commented Steve Gant, Vice President of Strategy and Business Development, LWL. "By joining forces with LWL, Service Providers can offer customers new, value-added services, across the Managed VDI life-cycle through high-margin, repeatable services. It's a testament to the program that Perot Systems has joined LWL's Managed VDI Alliance Program."

"Managed VDI is an excellent opportunity for our customers to help reduce the challenges and expense of deploying desktops," said Eric Hutto, director of Global Market Development at Perot Systems commercial solutions group. "Perot Systems' clients can now deploy desktops completely as a service, and pay on a monthly basis for only the desktops they have deployed, as a pure operating expense. Perot Systems can manage everything for our customers right up to the end-user's device: the datacenter, infrastructure, software, connectivity and operations."

LWL's Managed VDI Alliance Program

LWL's program includes Service Providers who are already in the hosting or outsourcing business and who want to leverage their existing data center assets to drive significant revenue through Managed VDI services. Alliance members will be able to increase quality, speed of deployment, and customer satisfaction with end-to-end VDI services and monthly subscription offerings.

Benefits to Service Providers

LWL accelerates VDI deployment and subscription revenue by providing the capability to assess physical desktops, migrate user profiles as well as data to the data center, while simultaneously monitoring and diagnosing virtualized desktops. With this program, service providers can:

  • Improve customer adoption of VDI services
  • Access world class methodologies from thought leaders in VDI
  • Receive world Class sales enablement tools and training
  • Access products and programs designed specifically for service providers
  • Accelerate VDI sales cycles by offering custom-branded assessment and design services
