InstallAnywhere with Virtualization and Cloud

Take Existing and New Software Products to Virtual and Cloud Infrastructures, and Create Docker Containers

Create Docker Images and Cloud, Virtual and Traditional Installers from a Single InstallAnywhere Project

Software virtualization and the cloud continue to deliver myriad benefits. For application producers, these technologies provide new mechanisms to deliver complex software applications, either as enterprise-ready virtual appliances, or as hosted SaaS offerings in the cloud. For your customers, these technologies can accelerate time to productivity, which improves first impressions of your software. To accommodate both existing and emerging environments, application producers therefore must continue to support today's configurations that customers still need and want – the physical, traditional on-premises installers – while also delivering applications as cloud-based offerings and support emerging platforms such as Docker. Our multiplatform installer can help.

InstallAnywhere Premier Edition with Virtualization and Cloud * is a multiplatform installer that provides application producers with an easy, convenient solution to take their existing and new software products to virtual and cloud infrastructures and automatically create Docker images.

One-Project File – Physical and Virtual Outputs

  • Create both Docker images and traditional multiplatform installers – all from a single InstallAnywhere project file.
  • Give your customers the ability to install your products in their environment of choice.

Software Virtualization and Cloud-based Deployments Made Simple

  • Easily create cloud-ready images, Docker images and enterprise-ready virtual appliances that require no technical expertise by you or your customers to install.
    • Build Docker Images from Any InstallAnywhere Project: Increase your deployment options and simplify installation development by automatically creating both Docker images and traditional multiplatform installers from a single InstallAnywhere project. Share your Docker images and make your applications visible in the Docker Hub and private repositories.
