This article outlines the requirements for the Cloudpaging components. Cloudpaging is certified for Ready for Windows and Citrix Ready.


What are the Cloudpaging Player System Requirements?

Player Requirements

Cloudpaging Player is a lightweight kernel agent and requires very little system resources. However, depending on the applications you are running, we recommend the following requirements for your machine:

  • Operating System: 
    • Windows 7 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows 8.1 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows 10 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows 11*
    • Windows Server 2012 R2 (64‐bit only)
    • Windows Server 2016 (64-bit only)
    • Windows Server 2019 (64-bit only)
  • Memory: 512 MB of RAM (1 GB recommended)
  • Disk Space: 10 GB free (for cache space)
  • Bandwidth: 10 Mbps minimum (A faster download speed improves performance)
Note: *Support for Windows 11 was added in Cloudpaging Player 9.3.1.

Besides the Cloudpaging Player requirements, your system must also meet any requirements of the application(s) you are virtualizing. Cloudpaging supports physical, RDS, and VDI (persistent and non-persistent) environments that meet the system requirements. The Cloudpaging Player requires administrator, or elevated privileges, to install.


What are the Cloudpaging Server System Requirements?

Server Requirements

Cloudpaging Server is a scalable, high availability service that supports Windows platforms. The following are system requirements:

  • Operating System: 
    • Windows Server 2012 R2 (64‐bit only)
    • Windows Server 2016 (64‐bit only)
    • Windows Server 2019 (64‐bit only)
    • Windows Server 2022*
  • CPU: 2.0 GHz (8-core recommended)
  • Memory: 2 GB of RAM (8 GB or higher recommended)
  • Disk Space: 50 GB (depending on applications delivered)
  • Bandwidth: 1 Gbps minimum 
Note: *Support for Windows Server 2022 was added in Cloudpaging Server 9.5.

If necessary, the Cloudpaging Server installation will configure the required version of the following prerequisite: 

  • Tomcat 8.5
  • Java OpenJDK 8
  • JDBC for SQL database


Database Requirements

Cloudpaging requires a relational database to store its data. Please refer to the database vendor for recommended hardware requirements. Microsoft SQL Express database versions are not supported in production environments.

  • Database Versions Supported:
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2012
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2014
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2016
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2017
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2019
  • Space Required: 10 GB
Note: The server space requirements are not absolute because application sizes vary. The number and size of the applications on the server will determine the actual minimum disk space required on your unique system.


Repository Requirements

Cloudpaging Server requires a common file share for distributing packaged applications to the paging services. The following file share types are supported and must be hosted on Windows file server:

  • SMB 3 - Server Message Block version 3
  • DFS Microsoft Distributed File System

Enterprise Portal includes support for Active Directory and requires a domain functional level of Windows Server 2008 or higher. 

Cloudpaging Server works on all modern browsers that support JavaScript, including Microsoft Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Apple Safari. 


What are the Cloudpaging Studio System Requirements?

Studio Requirements

Cloudpaging Studio is used to convert applications into a page format supported by all the platforms of Cloudpaging Player. The settings below apply to both VM's (preferred) or physical machines. 

  • Operating System:
    • Windows XP (32-bit only)
    • Windows 7 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows 8.1 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows 10 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows 11*
    • Windows Server 2003 (32-bit only)
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 (64‐bit only)
    • Windows Server 2012 R2 (64-bit only)
    • Windows Server 2016 (64-bit only)
    • Windows Server 2019 (64-bit only)
    • Windows Server 2022*
  • CPU: 3.0 GHz dual-core or faster
  • Memory: 4 GB or greater
  • Disk space: 60 GB or greater
Note: *Support for Windows Server 2022 and Windows 11 was added in Cloudpaging Studio 9.3.

System requirements also depend on the specific application being packaged. For example, an application may require certain graphic cards to be installed. Please refer to our Best Practices for Cloudifying Applications article for more detailed studio machine and VM host configurations.

Note: Cloudpaging Studio may require triple the disk space of the application installer size to package an application (installation footprint + container size + temp space to compress).
