Cloudpaging Applications

Cloudpaging applications are applications that have been virtualised and are run from a server.  During the virtualisation process the application is examined and broken down into 'pages'.  When you run a cloudpaging application it only downloads those pages that are needed to run the software, then as you use the software more pages are downloaded as and when needed.  This allows the applications to start much quicker than normal network based applications.

You can find the cloudpaging applications in the Start Menu along with the other locally installed applications.  When you launch a cloudpaging application the Cloudpaging Player windows will appear and you will a progress bar for the application you are trying to run.  Once the application is ready you can click Lanuch on the toolbar and the application will run as if it were locally installed.

We would appreciate any feedback you can give us on this new software delivery solution.
