VMware Horizon

Dynamically provision applications and updates across VMware Horizon environments in seconds.

Establish Application Portability on VMware Horizon

Managing an enterprise-scale VMware Horizon Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, like any other VDI solution, has its challenges. Many organizations resort to installing applications directly into their images/parent VMs. Application conflicts are possible when applications are installed in the image, which leads to image sprawl. The more users and applications a team has to support, the greater chance of image sprawl, which can be resource-intensive and cumbersome to manage.

Traditional Installations are Cumbersome

Installing applications into desktop images may seem like the path of least resistance, but it can lead to application conflicts. This includes potentially exposing strictly licensed applications to unentitled users. Moreover, you must provision updates to entire desktops to update applications. Rolling back changes can also require re-provisioning previous snapshots to end-user desktops.

Not All Containers Maximize Application Compatibility

ThinApp, like other traditional application virtualization solutions, cannot virtualize applications with drivers, COM+ component services, and other types of application components. This lowers the application packaging success rate with ThinApp.

Application Layering is Inefficient

App Volumes requires packaging applications into layers (AppStacks) that are compiled as virtual disks which are then mounted in Windows. If you have to deploy multiple applications, the mounting process can resource intensive. Additionally, some layers created on one version of Windows may not work on another version.​

Bring the Power of Containers to VMware Horizon

On top of our Cloudpaging® container technology, Cloudpager supports App-V, MSIX, and WAM application containers. This ensures your entire application estate can be dynamically provisioned and managed across on-premises and cloud-hosted desktop environments from a single pane of glass in a highly automated fashion. Numecent technologies can seamlessly run alongside your existing VMware solutions, such as ThinApp and App Volumes, maintaining your existing investments while expanding application virtualization coverage and container management capabilities.

Eliminate Application Compatibility Issues

Cloudpaging supports packaging applications with drivers, COM+ services, and other components other virtualization solutions struggle with, while ensuring dynamic delivery for all applications. This ensures application containers can be seamlessly updated, cleanly removed and rolled back quickly without sacrificing functionality or performance. Cloudpager can deploy these packages alongside App Volumes, maximizing application virtualization coverage across your enterprise.
