See some of Cloudhouse's key highlights in our "2014 Round Up"

Published on December 23, 2014

Cloudhouse invented “Cloud Application Virtualization” to revolutionize the way applications are delivered.  Corporate IT use us to deploy Windows applications onto modern platforms across a distributed user base whilst package software vendors use us to migrate existing applications to the Cloud.

Our technology is addressing the challenges of virtualizing any (including legacy) desktop application to eliminate local software installation, to provide seamless portability across all Windows desktop platforms, and to publish and manage applications from a public, private or hybrid Cloud.  In particular, Cloudhouse enables frictionless application deployment and on-going management within virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).  

Applications Anywhere and Data Anywhere together enable Windows client/server applications to be hosted in the Cloud as a managed service at a lower acquisition and total cost of ownership than comparable server based computing platforms such as Citrix or RDP.  Applications Anywhere enables client application software to be distributed and managed from the Cloud, whilst Data Anywhere provides a secure, reliable, and accelerated communications channel for database-centric traffic. 

Key Highlights of 2014

Customer feedback
From global healthcare companies to UK educational establishments, MSP’s to ISV’s, local consultancies to global software resellers – we have been fortunate to work with a number of terrific organisations throughout the course of this year.  Here are just a few of the great comments that have been made about Cloudhouse:

“We needed a way to compete against web native technologies… The Cloudhouse solution has enabled us to cloud-enable our desktop application and are winning more business than ever.”  T-Plan

Analyst comment
Following a full analysis by Gartner of our publishing and virtualization tool, our deployment platform, our application management console and our data connectivity tool, we were delighted to be recognized as a “Cool Vendor” in Endpoint Computing, 2014.

We were also named as a “Selected Vendor” within the brand new category of Cloud Application Virtualization in “Gartner’s IT Market Clock for Client Computing, 2014”.  The authors of this report, Federica Troni and Michelle A. Brosnhan, explain that “Cloud application virtualization offers many of the advantages of other application virtualization techniques and further improves IT agility by allowing applications to be delivered quickly or even to self-provision via application stores without installation on the device.” 

The team
It’s been wonderful to see our team expand over the last few months.  Our development, testing and professional services teams have almost doubled in size and we have welcomed three new members to our management team:

  • Nick Harmer became CMO in May
  • James Blandy joined as VP of Sales in June 
  • Chris Brandon is VP of Product Management and Delivery.

We are delighted to welcome so many new people to our team.

Looking ahead
2015 is another pivotal year for us.  We have signed contracts with a global supplier of healthcare software and will be jointly launching a Cloudhouse powered solution at HIMMS in April, so watch this space.  Additionally, a number of major product updates are planned, beginning with a portal upgrade in February and March.  We are continuing with our recruitment of truly exceptional individuals to join the team.

We will be kicking off the 2015 with a series of web seminars, the first is at 11am on Thursday 29th January and discusses "How to drive down the on-going cost of VDI deployments by optimizing application delivery & licensing".  For more information please contact us.

And finally…
We want to wish our customers, our partners and every member of the Cloudhouse team a peaceful end to 2014 and look forward to embarking on another exciting year in January.
