With the general availability and launch of Stratusphere UX 6.5, Liquidware announces the following enhancements and developments:
Certified for all Major Cloud Platforms
Stratusphere UX assembles the critical metrics needed to allow users to assess their legacy workspaces as a baseline to determine the best cloud provider and best tier to support their workloads. The solution gathers and provides key user experience metrics to support design of desktop images and infrastructure for all major cloud platforms. Key diagnostics ensure that the highest fidelity desktops are provided to users based on their requirements, whether routine task, or more complex knowledge or power users. Stratusphere UX is available from Amazon Marketplace, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure.
Significant Performance Improvements
The 6.5 version of the solution includes upgrades of CentOS from v6 (which will end of life in November) to v8. Additionally, the Postgres database has been upgraded to v12. These updates as well as new efficiencies in API calls have nearly doubled the speed performance in inspectors and data retrieval.
Security and Machine Health Metrics for Work from Home
New detailed Security and Machine Health metrics have been added to Stratusphere 6.5 as well. Many companies are relying on Work-from-Home programs for which workers are using their own personal devices. Personal devices often have questionable Security controls in place. Therefore, it is critical to have insight into how well they are protected. Stratusphere UX 6.5 now includes detailed metrics on Firewall status, OS updates, Credential/Device Guards, Secure Boot/Secure Storage status as well as Antivirus and AntiSpyWare updates and more.
New API Builder is GA
API Builder v2 is out of beta and is now GA in v 6.5. This version includes significant enhancements over the previous including:
- Easily pick related metric column groups to mirror existing Advanced > Inspectors views.
- Ability to import, save, tag favorites, and maintain history of API calls.
- Improved navigation with New, Simple/Extended, Copy, & Launch options.
- Enabling the Auto-Resolution option allows end users get updates to the API Call automatically. Added support for internationalization i.e. support for multiple languages.
