ATLANTA, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Liquidware Labs, the leader in desktop transformation, today announced industry luminary Jason Mattox as its Chief Technology Officer, to further desktop and user virtualization for the masses. Industry watchers will recall that Mattox was one of the original founding members at Vizioncore™, now part of Quest Software™ – propelling the company from startup through hypergrowth by co-creating and supporting the industry's first commercially available hot-backup for VMware™.
Prior to creating vRanger™ at Vizioncore, Mattox specialized in migrating corporations from PCs to virtual desktops using technologies such as Windows Server®, IGC MultiNode™, and MaxSpeed MaxStations™, an early stage multi-user desktop virtualization product ahead of its time, followed by Microsoft® Windows Terminal Server and various Citrix® products. Mattox gained valuable experience building on-demand desktops in server-based computing (SBC) environments. The experience Mattox gained building a user's profile and desktop on-demand provides a significant advantage in today's desktop and user virtualization markets, especially when leveraging stateless non-persistent desktops in VDI environments.
"Our solutions decouple users and applications from the desktop, and assist in the planning, migration and validation of physical and virtual desktop transformation projects. In this process we improve user experience and lower the risk for SMBs, enterprises, platform vendors, and channel partners as they search for ways to lower cost and improve the reliability of end user computing systems," said Mattox, CTO Liquidware Labs. "Given the renewed attention of SBC in the form of virtual desktop infrastructure and the emergence of application virtualization, Liquidware Labs finds itself in the center of a 'perfect storm'. Our ability to gain direct feedback from the most progressive desktop transformation and user virtualization projects around the world and translate this thought leadership into high value products such as Stratusphere™ and ProfileUnity™, is something I'm very passionate about bringing to the masses."
Rapid growth also requires a strict attention to detail. Liquidware Labs also plans to recruit additional team members to continue to deliver world-class support and to propel the development of high-quality and innovative desktop transformation software.
With Mattox as one of the most popular bloggers on subjects ranging from server virtualization, disaster recover/business continuity (DR/BC), storage, virtual desktop, and cloud computing, the market can expect Liquidware Labs to raise the level of the current conversation and thought leadership in virtual end user computing.
The rapid adoption of Liquidware Labs Stratusphere by the largest systems integrators around the world and the validation of their user state virtualization solution ProfileUnity were extremely interesting to Mattox, who decided to join with the company's founder and CEO David Bieneman once again.
"We are extremely fortunate that our success to date affords us the opportunity to attract world-class talent like Jason Mattox. He has seen this movie before, back to the early days of desktop virtualization (SBC) in the 1990's and throughout the creation of one of the most influential companies in virtualization," said David Bieneman, CEO Liquidware Labs. "Our channel partners, OEM partners, as well as our 600+ customers, consisting of many of the Fortune 500, will benefit immensely from Jason's experience and passion. Jason's addition is a testament to Liquidware Labs thought leadership in the desktop and user virtualization ecosystem."
