London, UK – 23rd May 2016 – Cloud application virtualization provider, Cloudhouse Technologies and cloud workspace provider, Cloud DC, today announced a partnership to on-board applications to the Cloud DC workspace. Both companies are committed to delivering apps, anytime, anywhere and on any device. By partnering, Cloud DC will use Cloudhouse’s Applications Anywhere solution to deliver business critical applications, regardless of device, operating system, or even where data is stored, on its virtual hosted Workspace platform.
Steve Robinson, CEO at Cloud DC said, “We are focused on empowering companies to take advantage of cloud services delivering the apps users want instead of full desktop deployments. Our customers just want apps made available to their users. However, often the biggest challenge in getting customers to this model is taking legacy or browser based apps to the cloud. With Cloudhouse, we can now get our customers to the cloud with their business critical apps regardless of any dependencies.”
Mat Clothier, Founder and CTO at Cloudhouse said, “Many of the business critical apps in use today have been built on legacy systems and have dependencies on outdated operating systems or browsers. Cloudhouse Applications Anywhere allows Cloud DC to take any classic Windows bespoke, browser based or desktop application to the Cloud DC Workspace platform. Our technology will enable Cloud DC customers to benefit from cloud services faster.”
Closely aligned with Microsoft and Citrix, the partnership will help customers overcome any challenges getting legacy apps to the cloud and enhances the cloud based delivery and management of applications in a way that enables Cloud DC to streamline application management in XenApp servers and/or images. Cloud DC delivers apps to their customers using full Citrix Reference Architecture on AWS, with Azure backup.
Cloud DC now can package apps once and reuse everywhere across a customer’s Workspace deployment, enabling them to take their entire office IT environment anywhere, anytime, and on any device.

Despite emergency security patches issued by Microsoft for a number of its legacy operating systems, WannaCry highlighted a major risk faced by companies running business critical applications on unsupported systems. It also showed that, without on-going support, it will become too costly, in both monetary and reputational terms, for organisations to continue running their legacy applications.
