Hi,

Are you guys using Profile Unity (Virtual Labs) in order to manage user profiles in VDI non-persistent or physical desktops? If you do, can you please let me know I would appreciate if you could share your experience.

We have worked with clients in evaluating this product ProfileUnity versus the longer established Appsense, for use on Physical Desktops and Citrix/Terminal Server sessions, to develop and deliver custom desktops, Shortcurts, Mapped drives, Printers and application deployment.

The majority of our clients have decided to use Appsense.

But both products require many weeks of development and testing time to rollout, and get the presentation correct for the end users. I would recommend that you dedicate a resource to work with either Appsense or ProfileUnity as a Project full time for several weeks in Pilot before rollout.

If you do not have the resouces in house to dedicate to the Project, there are plenty of Consultants, Appsense/ProfileUnity Resellers, that can complete your Project objectives in a very short time, and train and hand over the documentation to you.

So far our testing is going great. Also here are some of the reasons for us to go with PU.

What were the reason that drove your customers to go with AppSense? I wanted to hear the PU caveats because so far I haven't seen one. On the other hand I want to see things that could be done with AppSense that can't be done with PU.

Profile Unity was also well recognized on the Vmware World 2011, 2010, 2009 etc.

Both are very similar products, it was a niche market that Appsense had for years, so it's no surprise that they have competition.

Appense was proven to be faster at handling 5,000+ concurrent logons to the Domain, in both the Physical and Citrix/Terminal Server environments,  they also preferred their Support and Developement departments.
