Virtualisation encompasses some of the most powerful tools in the IT industry today

Innovative Desktop Transformation Solutions Company Acknowledged for 4th Year Running

LONDON - April 11, 2016 – Liquidware Labs, the leader in desktop transformation software solutions, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the company to its 2016 Virtualisation 50 list. The annual list recognises channel-friendly companies that provide some of the most innovative virtualisation technology available.

Selected by CRN editors, the 2016 Virtualisation 50 list recognises technology vendors that are leading the way in meeting a growing need for state-of-the-art virtualisation offerings. These vendors are instrumental in helping solution providers select and deploy the right tools for building virtualised environments - a critical first step in transitioning customers to the cloud. In addition to honouring vendors for outstanding products and services, the list serves as a valuable guide for solution providers looking for best-in-class virtualisation technology suppliers.

CRN editors select companies for the Virtualisation 50 list on the basis of multiple criteria, including each company's overall impact on the market, its influence on the channel as a whole, and the desirability of the technology and services it makes available to its partners.

Selling only via the channel, Liquidware Labs has a strong partner base in Citrix, VMware and Microsoft channels. Its desktop transformation solutions provide Desktop Monitoring and Diagnostics with Stratusphere™ UX, User Environment Management and Application Layering with ProfileUnity™ and FlexApp™.

“Virtualisation encompasses some of the most powerful tools in the IT industry today, enabling the centralisation of resources and remarkable scalability of IT infrastructure,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “This thriving segment of the IT market is the driving force behind the rapid, fascinating transformation of the data centre, and we are pleased to shine a spotlight on some of the key players in this space.”

“This is the fourth year running that Liquidware Labs has been named to CRN’s Virtualisation 50. As a 100% channel- focused company, we couldn’t be more proud to be honoured with this recognition from the leading channel publication,” stated Chris Akerberg, COO, Liquidware Labs. “With so much momentum in the desktop virtualisation market, the channel has a unique opportunity to capitalise on this segment in 2016.”

The Virtualisation 50 list will be featured in the April 2016 issue of CRN and online at
