September 29, 2020 – Cloudhouse is excited to join the G-Cloud 12 framework, part of the UK’s official Digital Marketplace for the Public Sector.
The G-Cloud 12 framework makes it easier, faster, and safer for the public sector to procure cloud solutions.
Public sector customers can now procure Cloudhouse professional services, desktop licensing and server licensing via the framework.
“We have a long history of supporting public sector customers as our technology has proven to cost-effectively resolve legacy application challenges faced by the likes of the Ministry of Justice, DWP and the Home Office,” commented Cloudhouse CEO and Founder, Mat Clothier.
The framework was created to ease procurement by public sector bodies. Since its inception in 2012, there has been over £6bn worth of sales through the framework.
“With the adoption of a Cloud First policy in the public sector, Cloudhouse is now uniquely positioned to help Government agencies migrate applications and users that would otherwise have been left behind,” said Mat.

Application Packaging Services are under Service ID 8002 7918 3107 797

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Cloudhouse costs are split into two elements – the licensing required to deploy application compatibility packages, and the professional services needed to create the application compatibility packages.
Licensing is offered on a per user basis for desktop applications and a per server basis for server applications. There are discounts available based on volumes.
Professional Services costs are dependent on the nature and complexity of the application. We quote a cost for packaging once we have been able to see the application, or portfolio of applications.

Packaging and Maintaining Applications
Cloudhouse provide the Professional Services to package applications.
Cloudhouse recommend packaged applications are tested in the standard UAT environments used for natively installed applications, or applications packaged in App-V. The more representative the test environment is of the live environment, the greater the chance of finding any issues prior to go-live.
Service packs and updates can be applied to the applications in a package using the Editor, refer to Updating, Editing and Maintaining Containers which describes how a new snapshot is created for the update, and how it is then applied to the package.
Cloudhouse recommends the same team who manage the operations of native apps.
Applications running in Application Compatibility Packages can be deployed, and managed with same tools, or scripts used to deploy natively installed applications e.g. SCCM, InTune, LAN Desk. Please refer to Supported 3rd Party Products and Versions for details.
The Cloudhouse Package does not include OS components, it only contains the packaged application plus Cloudhouse components. Cloudhouse recommend the same team that is responsible for supporting applications packaged with App-V, or delivered as natively installed applications, support Cloudhouse Application Compatibility Containers.
Full documentation is made available to Cloudhouse partners and customers as required.
Cloudhouse offers a full packaging service that can scale to meet any requirement. In the event, however, that a partner wishes to offer application compatibility packaging as part of a wider solution, Cloudhouse will work with that partner. Please contact us here for details.
