InstallAnywhere

Create Multiplatform Installations from a Single Project File – Physical, Cloud, and Virtual Environments, Plus Docker Containers

Professional, Reliable Multiplatform Installations

InstallAnywhere is the leading installation development solution for application producers who need to deliver a professional and consistent multiplatform installation experience for physical, virtual and cloud environments. InstallAnywhere creates reliable installations for on-premises platforms – Windows, Linux, Apple, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, and IBM – and enables you to take existing and new software products to a virtual and cloud infrastructure, and create Docker containers—all from a single InstallAnywhere project.

If you develop applications for multiple platforms in both on-premises and virtual environments, trying to manually create installations for each one is a time-consuming and error-prone process. It often leads to release delays and installation errors that frustrate end users and increase your support costs. For some, a lack of internal resources and skills may even prohibit them from taking advantage of the cloud and virtual environments, and emerging platforms such as Docker.

The first installation development solution to support the Docker open source platform, InstallAnywhere makes it easy for even the most novice multiplatform installation developer to create professional installation software for virtually any platform in both physical and virtual environments as well as container deployments. It is available in two editions: Professional and Premier.
