Cloudpaging

Leverage cloud application virtualization to ensure all your Windows desktop applications can run across any modern physical or virtual Windows desktop.

What is Cloudpaging?

Cloudpaging is our patented cloud application virtualization technology created by our team of world-class inventors and Windows experts. It enables you to package even the most complex legacy and custom applications and deploy them across any modern Windows desktop environment in a friction-free manner, regardless of their original operating system.

What Makes Cloudpaging Different?

Our patented Cloudpaging technology abstracts applications from their operating system and breaks them down into “pages,” delivering them to end-user desktops on an as-needed basis. Cloudpaging containers isolate dependencies that cause application conflicts, such as multiple Java JREs or outdated drivers. This combines the benefits of layers and containers without the challenges and conflicts. Cloudpaging containers can be reused across Windows devices and operating systems, enabling you to run your entire application estate across modern desktop environments without repackaging them.

By abstracting applications from their operating system and breaking them down into “pages,” Cloudpaging isolates troublesome drivers and dependencies that typically prevent applications from running on modern platforms. Cloudpaging’s advanced automated application provisioning capabilities put it in a class above traditional tools such as application virtualization tools, which only solve part of the application compatibility problems many companies face. It makes it possible to lift and shift applications to a new operating environment without the hassle and expense of upgrading to new versions of your existing software.

How to Make Windows 11 Your Last True Application Migration

With Windows 10 end of support arriving October 14, 2025, now is the time to plan your migration. Whether you are upgrading physical machines from Windows 10 to 11, adopting cloud-hosted desktops like Windows 365 and Azure Virtual Desktop, or establishing a hybrid desktop IT environment with a mix of physical and virtual desktops, the key to success is your applications.

Watch the webinar to learn how Cloudpaging can ensure your next application migration is not only successful, but the last one ever.

Key Cloudpaging Capabilities

Cloudpaging consists of abstracting applications from their OS and breaking them down into “pages”. These Cloudpaging containers isolate troublesome drivers and dependencies that typically prevent applications from running on modern platforms, ensuring application compatibility regardless of where they are provisioned. This means even the most difficult user mode and kernel mode applications, drivers, and multi-million-dollar line-of-business applications and ERP systems can move across servers, devices, or operating systems.

Cloudpaging Use Cases

Cloudpaging maximizes the mobilization and management of Windows applications across modern desktop and multi-cloud environments. With the highest rate of compatibility, you can achieve full application virtualization coverage and provide end users with a native application experience regardless of where they are working or what Windows operating system their device is on.

Cloudpaging Components

The Cloudpaging Suite consists of three components: Cloudpaging Studio, Cloudpager Server, and Cloudpaging Player. These technologies enable you to package, deploy, and run even the most complex legacy and custom applications across modern desktop and multi-cloud environments as if natively installed on end user desktops without traditional installations.

How Our Cloudpaging Technology Works

Cloudpaging consists of abstracting applications from their OS and breaking them down into “pages”. These Cloudpaging containers isolate troublesome drivers and dependencies that typically prevent applications from running on modern platforms, ensuring application compatibility regardless of where they are provisioned. This means even the most difficult user mode and kernel mode applications, drivers, and multi-million-dollar line-of-business applications and ERP systems can move across servers, devices, or operating systems. This process relies on two key technologies: a virtual memory management unit (VMMU) and their respective Cloudpaging containers.

Cloudpaging’s VMMU Maximizes Performance

The VMMU works by paging a pre-virtualized image and virtualized instruction set of the application, then directly pages those instructions to the Cloudpaging container, which can reside on local or virtual machines. Cloudpaging Studio reformats the software application into those pre-virtualized instructions, encrypts it leveraging AES 256-bit encryption, then divides them into code fragments called ‘pages’. Those pages are then placed in our cloudified format so that it can be consumed by the VMMU. By leveraging Cloudpaging Server or Cloudpager, those cloudified pages can be delivered across any cloud or on-premises server.

Only 10 percent of an application's data  is required to launch

Did you know only five to ten percent of a software application is required to launch?

With Cloudpaging’s patented technology, applications can launch up to 95% faster and lighter. The reason for this is that Cloudpaging only delivers the page fragments required to launch an application on the Cloudpaging Player. In fact, the application is never installed on the end user’s device.

What this means for your bottom line is that fewer resources and less storage are required for an organization’s end users to launch and run their “Cloudified” software.

Cloudpaging’s Container Configuration Maximizes Application Compatibility

During the application packaging process, Cloudpaging creates unique dispositions for isolating or integrating software on the end user’s operating system. This results in maximum application compatibility and functionality, whether the end-users’ desktops are virtual or physical.

Cloudpaging's unique disposition layers
During the initial packaging process, application files and registry keys can be assigned to any of the following three dispositions:

Isolated Disposition (Layer 4)

Assets are paged into a “container” and only visible to the application itself. This mirrors traditional isolation methods, establishing an extremely low risk of conflict between applications and the operating system.

Integrated Disposition (Layer 3)

Unique to Cloudpaging, assets are paged into a “container” and visible to the application itself, yet visible to the local system and other traditionally installed or paged apps. This allows applications to behave as though they are natively installed, with the flexibility to lift and shift to any Windows device or OS.

Installed Disposition (Layer 1 or 2)

Unique to Cloudpaging, this physical disposition pages assets from the application onto the OS. If you utilize Layer 2 you can restore original content upon deactivation. This maximizes application compatibility while eliminating the need for cumbersome workarounds and scripts.
