Neverware provides software solutions that takes old, existing computers and converts them into speedy machines that are faster, more secure, and easier to manage.
CloudReady is an operating system created and maintained by Neverware. Based on Google’s open source Chromium OS, CloudReady is a cloud-centric platform which uses Google Apps and cloud storage instead of traditional software and local storage. CloudReady can be installed on existing PCs and Macs, allowing schools to repurpose their existing hardware in preparation for Chromebooks.
We also offer Chrome Management Licenses which can be used with CloudReady devices.
CloudReady is certified to run on 200 of the most common PC and Mac hardware models. The lightweight, browser-based design means you can put older machines back into the hands of students.
Manage CloudReady machines right alongside Chromebooks, using the settings you’ve already created.
CloudReady & Windows
