Unidesk's portable app layers can be published to any hypervisor, end user computing platform, or cloud.

It is an honor to be named as one of the 'Best of Citrix Synergy 2016' award winners.

Unidesk Corporation announced today it won a Best of Citrix Synergy 2016 award at the annual Citrix Synergy conference in Las Vegas. Unidesk was a winner in the New Technology category for its redesigned application management solution that now spans Citrix XenApp, VDI, and the cloud. With the new Unidesk® 4, IT organizations can radically reduce image management costs for Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop, extend XenApp to deliver departmental and personal applications on a per user basis to maximize Citrix investments, and accelerate moving Windows desktop apps to the cloud.

An independent team of judges consisting of experts and editors from SearchVirtualDesktop.com reviewed and evaluated the products based on innovation, value, performance, reliability, and ease of use.

Unidesk stood out for its unique technology that packages every component of a Windows workspace - even the OS itself - as a virtual disk container, or "layer." Once apps are layered with an ordinary installation, they can be delivered to any number of virtual desktops or individual XenApp sessions without further installations. This innovative approach is compatible with more applications than any other application virtualization technology, leverages existing technologies such as Citrix Provisioning Services, and enables apps to be packaged once and delivered to any platform on-premises or in the cloud.

The judges remarked that Unidesk completely rebuilt its platform so it works with on-premises platforms and Microsoft Azure, and that being able to deploy virtual machines composed of layers to any platform is a unique and valuable feature. Unidesk is the only Azure-certified application management solution available in the Azure Marketplace.

“It is an honor to be named a ‘Best of Citrix Synergy 2016’ award winner," said Tom Rose, Unidesk Chief Marketing Officer. "We are grateful for the positive response and advocacy from Citrix customers and partners to our new, re-architected Unidesk platform. This award validates how Unidesk is redefining application management by driving operational cost out of existing Citrix XenApp and VDI environments, extending these modern Windows workspaces to more apps and more users, and giving agile enterprises an easy path to the cloud.”
