Liquidware Labs, the leader in desktop transformation solutions, today announced that it has continued its collaboration and integration with Red Hat’s virtualization portfolio in line with the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.1 today. Liquidware Labs also continues its participation in the Red Hat ISV Program through the Red Hat Market Place.
"We recognize that Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is increasingly taking hold as a foundational platform for many enterprise datacenter virtualization and private cloud projects," said Tyler Rohrer, Co-Founder of Liquidware Labs. "Both of our companies share a philosophy of embracing disruptive technologies and delivering innovative but solidly reliable and robust solutions for a dynamic market. Our mutual perspective makes us good collaborators in providing solutions to help drive the guesswork and extra cost out of virtualization projects."

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.1 is an end-to-end virtualization solution that enables pervasive datacenter virtualization and significantly enhances capital as well as operational efficiency. Liquidware Labs has developed specialized server-capacity planning software, based on its market-leading Stratusphere™ FIT product and Stratusphere™ IXD technology, for use with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, including its 3.1 release today. Stratusphere Server FIT with Host Designer runs exclusively on the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization platform and will help customers and partners assess physical machines for baseline performance. Liquidware Labs solutions also help rapidly size virtualization requirements and assist in the design of virtual hosting infrastructures. Liquidware Labs' other leading solutions, ProfileUnity™ FlexApp™ assists in migration of users and user virtualization management — including application virtualization — while Stratusphere™ UX enables validation and monitoring of user experience to complete the transformation process.
“We are bringing new capabilities across performance, reliability, openness and cost for enterprises with today’s release of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.1,” said Chuck Dubuque, senior manager, Product Marketing, Red Hat Virtualization Infrastructure. “Through the combination of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.1 and Liquidware Labs’ capability planning functionality, we’re providing more choice in open virtualization to enterprises. We look forward to our continued collaboration with Liquidware Labs.”
By leveraging Liquidware Labs' Stratusphere Server FIT with Host Designer in collaboration with Red Hat, enterprises are further enabled to improve scalability and enhance value for their virtualization deployments. Customers are offered the opportunity to measure real-world, actual resource-usage requirements of their existing physical machines-including data on machines; machine groups; hardware findings; application software usage and resource requirements; and virtualization ratings for machines-as the basis for migrating them onto Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization. In addition, a specialized design module will utilize the assessment metrics to design a host chassis for the hypervisor host.
