VMware ThinApp is an innovative technology for accelerating application virtualization and helping organizations ease deployment, compatibility, distribution, and application migration. With VMware ThinApp, applications are packaged into single executables that run completely isolated from each other and the operating system for conflict-free execution on end-point devices. Application packages are made compatible with heterogeneous versions of Windows platforms, eliminating costly recoding and regression testing for new OS environments such as Windows 7.

To make it easier to benefit from ThinApp and extract greater value from the technology, more organizations are turning to Liquidware Labs ProfileUnity, a comprehensive user environment management solution.
 
ProfileUnity enables a single, unified user profile (for both Windows XP and Win 7), central management of user settings, and persistency of user persona and settings even in non-persistent VDI environments. Companies have been using ProfileUnity to help them break free from Roaming Profiles once and for all, have a single solution for physical desktops, laptops, and virtual machines, and migrate from legacy operating systems to new ones. And now, with the latest release of ProfileUnity, organizations can publish and assign VMware ThinApp applications to users without the need for proprietary databases or expensive infrastructure.
 
ProfileUnity plus ThinApp
With ProfileUnity, VMware ThinApp customers can implement application delivery to specific user profiles and track license usage in a matter of minutes. ProfileUnity can deploy, cache, and remove applications virtualized by VMware ThinApp to physical desktops, laptops, or virtual machines, regardless of connection state.
 
ThinApp Deployment
ProfileUnity’s ThinApp module has innovative ThinApp Deployment not found in any other user virtualization management solution. IT professionals can centrally manage ThinApp applications for all users across the enterprise. Deployment functionality includes:
  • Online Mode Deployment: Centrally distribute access and create local start menu items to network-based ThinApp applications for online desktops.
  • Offline Mode Deployment: Cache ThinApp applications and automatically create Start menu items for offline desktops/laptops
  • Remove: Delete access to online and offline ThinApp applications and remove cached versions.

Assign, Cache, and Rollback ThinApp App Packages from one central console.
 
ThinApp Inventory
License compliance of virtualized applications is of concern to many organizations. ProfileUnity provides a powerful yet easy to use capability that details which users have been provisioned access and cached copies of ThinApp applications across the enterprise.
 
ProfileUnity can instantly generate an on-demand per-user inventory of all ThinApp applications across the enterprise – an extremely effective tool for managing “app sprawl.” This information can be compared to software license agreements to ensure compliance in real time.
 
Centralized Inventory and License Auditing.
 
Manage ThinApp Sandboxes
By leveraging ProfileUnity’s profile portability features, the solution can persist ThinApp sandboxes even in non-persistent environments. Users will enjoy seamless access to application-level customizations such as spell checkers, dictionaries, email signatures and layouts available no matter where users access their application.
 
Re-direct “Save as” and Common Folders
Through ProfileUnity’s Folder Redirection module, administrators can enforce best practice document storage policies. Automatically re-map desktop default "save as" and "look in" locations, ensuring storage on disaster recovery protected servers and reducing user profile bloat issues. The solution can also mark redirected folders with hidden attributes to avoid users improperly storing mission critical documents to local drives.
 
To ease adoption and enhance time-to-value, VMware and Liquidware Labs are offering attractive pricing and licensing options.
