Cloudpaging is a next-generation application virtualization and delivery tool. A Cloudpaging player lets you package and virtualize any Windows software, even big 'tricky' apps that legacy technologies like App-V and ThinApp can't handle.
Numecent's Cloudpaging technology represents the only practical way for universities to deliver 100% of Windows apps to any device, anywhere. This is really important for university IT who often need to deploy heavyweight software such as ArcGIS, AutoCAD, SPSS and NVivo, to demanding students. And for users the virtualized Cloudpaging apps look, act and feel as though they're locally installed, all delivered through AppsAnywhere without the hassle of installation and updates.
Microsoft's App-V and VMware's ThinApp work for some stuff. We don't have some stuff. We have all stuff.

What is Cloudpaging and application virtualization?
Our short animated video below explains the world of application virtualization, the technologies available when it comes to virtualizing your Windows software, and how the Cloudpaging player from Numecent is different to the competition:
1. Package and 'Cloudify' all your Windows apps
2. Use AppsAnywhere to deliver packaged apps to your students
3. Execute and run apps at native speed (as if installed!)
Benefits of virtualizing apps using Cloudpaging...
With Cloudpaging and application virtualization you separate the apps from the OS, so you can massively reduce the size of your image.
Virtualized apps behave as if locally installed, with no compromise on performance. That includes 3D graphics, HD content and CPU-intensive apps. Yep, it's awesome for students (and staff)!
Even if your users lose connection to the server, your apps will still be available, and without the loss of licence control! Power cut at exam time and the labs go down? It could happen...
With AppsAnywhere's application virtualization technology you can virtualize all your Windows applications, and deliver them to students on-demand. 100%!
Right-size or enhance your existing Higher Ed desktop virtualization or VDI solution by delivering software apps to any student with AppsAnywhere.
Cloudpaging Tech Specs
Virtualized apps integrate fully with the operating system
Virtualized apps work in exactly the same way as if they were actually installed on the computer. That means that whilst they're virtualized they'll appear in the Start Menu, have access to native files, can save locally, interact with context menus, and use all the usual peripheral devices.
Choose how much to virtualize. No conflicts.
Integrate or isolate as much of the app as you need to, right down to a file or registry key level. Easily deliver isolated application dependencies and avoid conflicts with existing installations.
Operating System and VDI compatibility.
Cloudpaging is compatible with all Windows apps (32-bit and 64-bit) and with Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. It can be used alongside existing VDI, and is compatible with VMware Horizon View, Citrix XenDesktop, Citrix XenApp and Microsoft Hyper-V with RemoteFX.
