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?

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:


Player Requirements

  • Operating System: 
    • Windows 7 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows 8.1 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows 10 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows Server 2012 R2 (64‐bit only)
    • Windows Server 2016 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows Server 2019 (32 & 64-bit)
  • 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)


In addition to 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 does require administrator, or elevated privileges, to install.


What are the Cloudpaging Server System Requirements?

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


Server Requirements:

  • Operating System: 
    • Windows Server 2012 R2 (64‐bit only)
    • Windows Server 2016 (64‐bit only)
    • Windows Server 2019 (64‐bit only)
  • 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 


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

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


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 Requirements:

  • 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


Enterprise Portal includes support for Active Directory and Single Sign-On, but is only available on Windows platforms with an SQL Server database. Cloudpaging Server works on all modern browsers that support JavaScript, including Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Chrome and Safari. 


NOTE: These server 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.


What are the Cloudpaging Studio System Requirements?

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


Studio Requirements:

  • Operating System‐ Any of the following:
    • Windows XP (32-bit only)
    • Windows 7 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows 8.1 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows 10 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows Server 2003 (32-bit only)
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 (64‐bit only)
    • Windows Server 2012 R2 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows Server 2016 (32 & 64-bit)
    • Windows Server 2019 (32 & 64-bit)
  • CPU: 3.0 GHz dual-core or faster
  • Memory: 4 GB or greater
  • Disk space: 60 GB or greater


System requirements are also dependent on the specific application being packaged. For example, an application may require certain graphic cards to be installed. Please refer to our best practices article for more detailed studio machine and VM host configurations.


NOTE: Triple the disk space of the application installer may be required for packaging (installation footprint + container size + temp space to compress).
