If you’re a desktop administrator faced with the looming task of migrating Windows 7 users to Windows 10 on hundreds of desktops (physical or virtual), you need a plan that both makes the transition process easier and keeps users productive. ProfileUnity manages such user environment changes while also allowing the co-existence of Windows 7 and Windows 10 operating systems during the process. Windows 10 itself has multiple profile versions. At the time of writing there are as many as three versions of user profiles in the Windows 10 releases to date. Learn more.
Managing Windows user profiles can be a complex and challenging process. Better profile management is usually sought by organizations looking to reduce Windows login times, accommodate applications that do not adhere to best practice application data storage, and to give users the flexibility to login to any Windows Operating System (OS) and have their profile follow them. Note that additional profile challenges and solutions are covered in a related ProfileUnity whitepaper entitled “User Profile and Environment Management with ProfileUnity.” Learn more.
Emerging storage hardware and software enable I&O leaders to lower acquisition costs per terabyte and improve manageability.
