Cloud Gate

What is it?

CloudGate Square is a palm-sized computer, running the Windows 10 operating system. Running an Intel Quad-Core Atom CPU and a solid state hard drive, CloudGate Square is a powerful replacement for most tower computers at a fraction of the cost. Plug into an existing monitor, keyboard & mouse and you have a powerful unit for home-office, small office and enterprise.

CloudGate Square runs a full version of Windows 8.1, so all your current Windows based applications are able to install and are fully functional. CloudGate Square is powerful enough to run as a stand-alone desktop or a powerful thin-client replacement to access services in the cloud.


Thanks to the innovative CloudWare* software, which was developed in South Africa for the limitations of African connectivity, applications and data can be securely accessed over the Internet. CloudGate is not just a complete Windows desktop, but also a secure dumb terminal for accessing Windows environments based in the cloud. CloudWare has been designed specifically for Africa’s limitations of slow and expensive bandwidth, making it fast over a low-bandwidth connection.

Whatever your Windows application delivery needs, CloudWare can deliver to any device. Especially a CloudGate!
