What is CloudPaging?

CloudPage is an application virtualisation service that allows ISS to easily deploy software applications on-demand to computers around campus. 

Using this system, virtualised applications are streamed to your computer allowing them to run and perform as if they were natively installed. Applications are managed by the player so they can be installed and removed much quicker than traditionally installed applications. It also means that ISS are able to manage upgrades for you so you will always be running the latest version of each application available.

Where is it available?

Computer labs

If you are using an ISS managed computer then the Cloudplayer will be installed on your computer already. The installation and upgrades of the player are handled by ISS meaning you are ready to start using DCU licensed Software right away.
