Overview

As Windows 7 support is winding down, more and more enterprises are gearing up for Windows 10, or VDI using Server 2016, and preparing for what that move might mean for their apps. Unlike application virtualization technologies, Cloudpaging supports difficult user mode and kernel mode apps, drivers, legacy applications and ERP systems across servers, devices, or operating systems.
During the application packaging process, Cloudpaging creates unique dispositions for isolating or integrating software and the end user’s operating system. This results in maximum application compatibility and functionality, whether the end-users’ desktops are virtual or physical. Plus, Cloudpaging’s provisioning and management capabilities are compatible with existing tools, such as Microsoft SCCM (ConfigMgr) and many more, so integration is seamless and IT departments are not required to learn a new system.
