Cloudhouse and Apptimized partner to offer a one-stop migration service for all applications.
Simon May joins Cloudhouse from Apptimized to lead the partnership.
London, UK – February 5, 2018 – Cloudhouse, a leading provider of Compatibility Container technology, has today announced a strategic partnership with Apptimized to create a unique one-stop migration service for all applications.
The partnership will combine Cloudhouse’s industry leading application containerisation technology with Apptimized’s fast, scalable secure cloud-based application packaging solution in a single-end-to-end service. This will create a unique service able to migrate every application, including applications being moved from legacy versions of Windows and Citrix platforms to current platforms, such as Windows 10.
Cloudhouse founder and CEO Mat Clothier: “This is an important step in our evolution, making Cloudhouse technology a viable option for customers wanting to leverage the benefits of containerisation across their entire estate, and not just applications incompatible with their target platform.
“Together Apptimized and Cloudhouse offer customers an enhanced and accelerated service for migration of applications to the latest desktop and cloud platforms.” Henry Jonas, Apptimized CEO: “We are excited to be partnering with Cloudhouse. If customers are going to meet the challenges presented by platform migration they will need to reduce complexity.
“By offering a single service able to handle every application, we will remove complexity, improve service levels and reduce costs.”
As part of the strategic partnership, former Apptimized CSO Simon May has moved to Cloudhouse and will hold the role of Sales Manager, as he leads the creation and launch of the partnership.
“The bringing together of Apptimized’s unequalled expertise and experience as well as the scale and speed of their platform, with Cloudhouse’s proven technology, gives us a unique ability reduce risk and cost across an entire applications estate while assuring application compatibility, speeding up application deployment and reducing management overhead.”
Founded in 2003 in Potsdam, Germany, Apptimized have been providing high quality, high speed application packaging services to customers across all sectors including the likes of PwC, AXA, DXC and Computacenter. It was the first provider to offer secure cloud-based, fixed cost packaging, delivering a zero risk, pay-as-you-go SAAS-based service.
Cloudhouse Containers free enterprises from running unsupported Windows and Citrix platforms by making otherwise incompatible applications run on the newest platforms – whether they run on premise or in the cloud. Apps only need to be packaged once in stateless containers that handle application runtime, isolation, and full redirection. As a result, enterprises can complete Windows 10 or Citrix Cloud migration projects successfully. Cloudhouse is based in London.
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.
