Cloudhouse congratulates Citrix on its acquisition of Unidesk, the leading application delivery system for virtual servers and desktops. We think Unidesk strengthens the Citrix portfolio and positions the company as a best-in-class supplier to customers seeking digital transformation via large-scale adoption of cloud computing. Of course, to leverage cloud computing, all delivery technologies, including Unidesk, require that an application can install and run on the latest Windows server (Windows Server 2012/2016 64-bit) or desktop OS (Windows 10 64-bit).
Cloudhouse plays a unique role in this landscape by enabling any application tied to a legacy Windows OS and/or legacy Internet Explorer browser to run unchanged on the latest Citrix and Windows platforms. Such legacy applications, wrapped in our patented container technology, can then to be delivered using whatever delivery technology the customer chooses, including the application layering technologies of Unidesk.
We look forward to building upon our partnership with both Citrix and Microsoft to allow our mutual customers to take their otherwise incompatible applications to Windows 10 and the Microsoft Azure cloud, leveraging Unidesk as the premier delivery technology.
