We recommend before you read about Application Jukebox that you review Cloudpaging here.

Application Jukebox Server is the administrative software that cloudpages Windows applications down to Windows PCs. You have a host of options to administer, monitor, control and deliver your applications to your users.

  • If you're in enterprise IT and you need to deliver applications—especially graphics-intensive apps like Photoshop and AutoCAD—to employees or business partners, Application Jukebox Server gives you complete control over user access.
  • If you work for a college or university and need to give students access to an application, but only for a quarter or a semester, Application Jukebox Server lets you provide access to students for a limited time.
  • If you are a software vendor or software distributor, Application Jukebox Server allows you to sell or even rent Windows applications to users through the e-commerce site of your choosing—with no re-engineering required.

Unlike traditional terminal-server deployments, the Application Jukebox Server does not execute any of the applications it serves. Instead, the server cloudpages the application blocks down to the Application Jukebox Player on the user's PC. That means that the user's PC processes the application, not the server—so big, complex apps aren't bogged down by typical terminal-server performance problems. It also means that the server is very efficient: a typical Application Jukebox Server could easily deliver most of your applications to around 10,000 users.

Application Jukebox Server also provides full license management and enforcement, so you can be efficient with your software licenses - down to hourly intervals.

Application Jukebox Server's usage monitoring features provide all the information you need to ensure license compliance and efficiency.

Controlled from a simple web-based portal, Application Jukebox Server has an on-line dashboard that provides an overview of system health; highlights any recent server log activity, and summarizes information about available applications, revision levels and usage.
