Zero User Downtime Migration to Windows 11 Powered by Liquidware
Liquidware, the provider of digital workspace management, has announced its leading User Environment Management solution, ProfileUnity, now provides support for both Windows 11 and Windows Server 2022. ProfileUnity’s unique Profile Portability feature enables a zero user downtime experience when migrating to Windows 11.
“For enterprise organizations planning an upgrade path for multiple thousands of users can result in user downtime that can have a huge impact on the business,” commented Jason E. Smith, VP Alliances and Product Marketing, Liquidware. “When leveraging ProfileUnity’s Profile Portability feature, at login, user profiles are dynamically adapted to their new Windows 11 environment. This saves organizations time, money, and effort and provides an optimal user experience. The new feature set also enables non-stop workspace resiliency, which is paramount for today’s ‘work from anywhere’ requirements.”
ProfileUnity dynamically evolves user profiles to Windows 11 and enables them to co-exist with older OS versions, thus allowing for a phased upgrade/migration approach.
The latest version of ProfileUnity has the following functionality:
- Support for Windows 11
- Support for Windows Server 2022
- A new “Path Overrides” feature to help manage environments that lack a global name space in their Active Directory setup. This feature is especially helpful in POD architecture and Active Active designs, helping ensure business continuity for enterprises with modern workspace infrastructure
During a recent webinar hosted by Liquidware a poll question asked when the attendees were planning to migrate to Windows 11, the results were:
- 12% are planning to migrate in the first half of 2022
- 41% are planning to migrate in the second half of 2022 and
- 41% are planning to migrate sometime during 2023
