Application Management Simplicity for Your Cloud

Application Management Simplicity for Your Cloud

Windows apps are the lifeblood of your enterprise. We’ve designed an open management solution that makes packaging, updating, and delivering apps on any end user computing platform astonishingly simple. So you and your users can focus on accelerating your business.

Layering Changes Everything

Package any Windows app as a portable virtual disk with a normal install. Deliver it hundreds and thousands of times, anywhere, without further installations. Update it, combine it with other layers, roll it back, or retire it just as easily. Unidesk layering is simply the best method of enterprise application lifecycle management.

See why Unidesk is the only application management solution that won both Best of Citrix Synergy and Best of VMworld awards in 2016.

Compatible with All Apps

Stop struggling with solutions that don't give you 100%. Unidesk layering technology enables you to package complex apps, system services, drivers, apps that need to be running before user login, and even the Windows operating system itself as modular layers. You can finally put an end to slow app delivery, elongated patching cycles, and resource-intensive break/fix.

App Delivery That’s ASAP

Unidesk Elastic Layering™ delivers apps just-in-time at user login based on directory entitlements. It’s the best way to deliver apps to your users as soon as they need them, without a desktop reboot. What’s more, it’s also resource-efficient - you can now offer a customizable user experience using non-persistent VDI or, in an industry-first, Citrix XenApp or RDSH.

Solves Image Management, Too

You’ll always need images. But with Unidesk, you’ll never have to manage them again. Create as many Layered Images as you need for your Citrix XenApp, VDI, or cloud workspaces. Patch your Windows and app layers once. Unidesk will update all the images using your favorite provisioning tool. Image management headaches: gone.

Hypervisor & Cloud Flexibility

Unidesk future-proofs your end user computing environment by enabling the same app layer to be delivered anywhere, without re-packaging. Switch hypervisors to reduce costs. Manage across hypervisors to simplify mergers and acquisitions. Migrate apps to the cloud for infrastructure-free app delivery or pay-only-if-needed DR. No other solution gives you such flexibility.

Rapid Time to Value

Install the single Unidesk virtual appliance. Then use Unidesk platform connectors to integrate with your existing end user computing environment. Publish Layered Images through Citrix PVS or MCS to end XenApp image management pain. Do the same with VMware Composer or Instant Clones to accelerate custom desktop provisioning. Setup Elastic Layering using a standard file share. We don’t believe in rip-and-replace or long-term ROI.

"We cannot afford downtime. With PCs, undoing a problematic patch or trying to diagnose and fix a problem could take hours. That takes time and resource away from my IT team, and renders users unproductive. With Unidesk, we correct bad patches in minutes by simply rolling changes back."
