London, UK — 6 February 2017 — UK-based application container provider, Cloudhouse has been named a Tech Trailblazer Awards finalist in the Virtualization Trailblazer category for their Containers for IE, Windows client and server applications.
Cloudhouse removes deployment barriers for any application that needs to work on supported Microsoft or Citrix environments, or that needs to move to the cloud.
Rose Ross, Chief Trailblazer, Tech Trailblazers Awards said; “An outstanding year for enterprise tech startup entrants. Our judges certainly had their work cut out this year and I certainly do not envy them as this gets harder year on year. The Tech Trailblazers team wish these outstanding startups and startup superheroes the very best of the luck.”
Cloudhouse CTO and Founder, Mat Clothier said, “Unfortunately incompatibilities and conflicts exist between business applications and the latest supported, compliant and secure platforms. Cloudhouse Containers enable you to take any app, no matter how old, how complex or who developed it and containerize the application, dependencies and redirections required to overcome platform dependencies. We are extremely pleased to be recognized for our trailblazing technology.”

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.
