Any program running on a Windows computer can now be
offered to customers and colleagues world-wide, right in their web browsers!
Live streamed Windows programs are one of the most exciting recent advances
in Internet development. Migrating software to the Internet
used to be a herculean task requiring hundreds of hours of programming, but
today we can install your software on a cloud server and simply run it in a
web browser. The video below spotlights three different mission-critical
business applications we moved from local computers to the
World Wide Web for our customers.

program in the cloud!
Understanding the Technology
Live streaming applications are run on a Windows server in the cloud. Users
log on to a Remote Desktop session through their web browser. One of the
best features of this technology is that users don't even need a copy of
Windows. They can run your program in any HTML5 capable browser - including
the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge, Safari, and
many others - on a variety of devices such as PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, or
Two of the large, self-service providers of this technology are
Amazon Web Services and Frame.
Both companies offer a similar approach to streaming applications over the
internet - each user runs their copy of the program on a separate, virtual
cloud server. Multiple instances of these servers are spun up and down
depending on demand. More users logging into your program results in more
servers running online. These companies charge you for the service
based on both your total number of users and the total amount of computer
time used by all of the servers running your program. Your cost with
the big guys may
vary widely from month to month depending on both how many users are
connected and how long they stay connected. Furthermore, setting it all up
can be complicated as well as costly.
A Better Approach
In contrast, we install your application on a single dedicated server with
simple pricing based on server size plus the total number of authorized users.
No need to worry about server instances or minutes of usage. Another big
advantage to our approach is that users can save data in your program and
their data remains on the server between sessions. That doesn't happen
with the AWS or Frame platforms.
