AWS customers can click here to access EMP Application Compatibility Packaging Services on the AWS Marketplace.
Cloudhouse CEO Mat Clothier commented: “The capability to procure Professional Services from AWS partners via the marketplace was only launched at AWS re:invent in December. As the global Preferred Partner for the AWS EMP Programme it’s important that we make it as easy as possible to give AWS customers access to our services.”
The AWS End-of-Support Migration Program for Windows server (EMP) gives AWS customers a migration path to AWS EC2 for legacy applications dependent on Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2.
“Cloudhouse has unrivalled knowledge of the specialist EMP application compatibility packaging technology that isolates the application from the underlying Operating System, enabling the migration of applications to a newer, supported version of Windows Server on AWS,” Mat added.

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.
