Howell Technology Group (HTG) Commits To Working With Cloudhouse Across The UK To Solve The Challenge Of Legacy Operating SystemJune 26, 2018
Howell Technology Group (HTG), a UK-based virtualization, VDI and cloud services specialist, has today announced its commitment to working with Cloudhouse, a leading provider of compatibility container technology, to enable customers to easily migrate applications from legacy versions of Windows and Citrix platforms to current platforms, such as Windows 10.
By offering Cloudhouse containers to its customers, HTG will enable them to run legacy apps on current versions of Windows and Citrix without the need for expensive and time consuming code rewrites. This will also allow their apps to benefit from future security updates or to run in the cloud, extending their lifespan and supporting essential digital transformation projects.
"Being able to provide disruptive digital technology solutions is a key differentiator in business and thanks to our partnership with Cloudhouse we are delighted to be offering these type of services to organizations," said Graham Wight, CEO at HTG. "We believe in providing the right tools for the job, and will never recommend a solution unless it specifically meets the need of the client. Cloudhouse’s container technology has become an important asset for us and our clients in overcoming application deployment challenges. Legacy IT is a challenge that is only going to get more complex for businesses and IT teams over time, and it is important for us at HTG to be able to work with our clients and mitigate these issues in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner."
"We are excited to continue our work with HTG and enhance the IT services that it can offer to end users in both the public and private sector," said Gavin Chapman, Chairman at Cloudhouse. "This is a key partnership for Cloudhouse as, with our compatibility container technology and HTG’s expertise in providing IT services, we believe end users can really experience the benefits of moving away from legacy IT. There are always new challenges in this space as what is commonly used in today’s world, won’t be around forever. The next big milestone for this issue will be Windows 7’s end of life and we look forward to working with HTG to help IT teams and organizations move to newer, supported platforms."
