Cloudhouse Containers White Paper

Version 3.4

Cloudhouse enables Enterprise customers to migrate business applications from unsupported, unsecure and non-compliant operating systems like Windows XP and Server 2003, to Windows 10 and Server 2016 and the cloud.

Applications are packaged in containers using the Auto Packager and then managed and deployed to server and desktop images using the customer’s existing deployment tools for example Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), LANDESK, Microsoft Store for Business and Windows InTune etc. and delivered locally or through Citrix XenApp, XenDesktop or Microsoft Remote Desktop Services. Latest updates include additional information for Server Apps.
