DEPLOYING COMPLEX APPLICATIONS
Most organizations will have applications that cannot be deployed with existing packaging technology or desktop deployment tools. Products like Microsoft App-V and VMware ThinApp will have limitations of supporting only 50% or so of applications. VDI app layering products like VMware AppVolumes can exhibit application performance issues when many applications are deployed while not efficiently supporting users still on physical desktops or notebooks.
Applications with drivers and complex installers can be installed through products like Microsoft Systems Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) but this can impede a users ability to work right away with long installation processes. Yet, many I.T. departments will still deploy the most troublesome applications through manual install methods either physically in front of the user or via remote control access.
Cloudpaging for Enterprise allows I.T. departments to compartmentalize applications for delivery to any form factor instantly. Applications can be pushed to users during login through Cloudpaging Auto Deploy or users can select the applications they need through a self service app store-like portal. Applications delivered through Cloudpaging need no installation yet they run locally unlike pixel remote application delivery solutions, allowing local GPUs and CPUs to deliver high performance capabilities even on networks that pixel remoting solutions find problematic.
As updates to applications are needed, Cloudpaging for Enterprise can push these to users without the need for re-installation downtime. Even applications with no update process normally requiring a full re-install can be delivered instantly to users making updates seamless to users.
