Check this out: Industry First Alert. The new version of ProfileUnity and FlexApp, v6.7.6, (my favourite product of all time) which has an industry first feature, the ability to have User Profiles as a Service from Object-based storage (Amazon S3, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Blob).
Liquidware are able to do this with API level integration without using a SMB file share! You can also host your needed configuration files the same way, thus avoiding two Windows servers that would otherwise be needed in the mix.
This streamlines the cost and complexity of VDI, RDS, and any Windows desktop management. It also makes it seamless to onboard users to DaaS when ready because your profiles and data can already be hosted in the cloud.
So your profiles can sit in a cloud blob… means they can follow you everywhere now…. EVERYWHERE!

OK so its no secret that ProfileUnity is one of my favorite apps but I came across a nice video showing a new feature “click-to layer”. Its a way to make App Layering work with published apps out of the box as normally you need a .exe in the command-line for published apps to work without a reboot.
Also the click-to-layer allows for quicker logon because you don’t have to wait for the app to be layered and it gets layered when you need it. Think it’s easier for you to watch the video too instead of my ramblings.
