Application Virtualization & Streaming
Windows & Linux apps are the lifeblood of your institution. U2Cloud delivers a cloud platform that makes packaging, updating, and delivering apps on any end user computing platform simple. Pick the apps you want and like magic, they’re delivered to any end user computing platform on any cloud.
Simple & Easy
You simply point and click to assign applications to your end-users. These applications will automatically appear on the users endpoints, It’s really that simple! Transition provisioning to HR or IT helpdesk.
Greater App Compatibility
Standard office productivity apps, complex educational apps, printer drivers, you name it. Unlike virtualization technologies that isolate apps in protective bubbles, layered apps appear locally installed for full interoperability.
Seamlessly manage the lifecycle of your apps from deployment to retirement. Even “undo” patches to quickly resolve issues simply by assigning an earlier version of an app or Windows layer. Roll-back entire classrooms or labs to their previous working states.
How can I get started with application virtualization?
U2Cloud offers a one-on-one demo with a Solution Architect to see how application virtualization can solve many of your IT challenges.
Frequently asked questions about application virtualization:
What is Application Virtualization?
Application virtualization is the seperation of an installation from the client computer OS accessing it. There are two main delivery mechanism of these virtualized applications ; Remote Apps & Application Streaming
Remote Apps – Run on a server and end-users interact with their application via a remote display protocol. When delivered to users, remote applications appear very similar to applications running locally on the user device.
Application Streaming – the virtualized application is executed on the users local device and can run without network connectivity.
In both remote applications and application virtualization, user interaction with the application is seamless. Printers, drives, peripherals, and even the clipboard work in the exact same manner as if the application were installed.
Why Application Virtualization?
Application virtualization is significantly cheaper than full desktop virtualization, which is its main advantage over desktop virtualization. Other benefits include the ease of maintenance and greater portability, making programs easier to deploy across several versions of Windows.
