Virtual app delivery(VAD) platform Cameyo has changed the way companies approach legacy software and expensive licensing that creates software-dependent lock-in. In contrast to other services that virtualize a full Windows desktop environment, Cameyo packages only the specific Windows applications and web apps needed by an organization and delivers them via a customized app delivery dashboard that can be managed by IT administrators. The result is a seamless application experience for the end user and reduced costs compared to traditional server-based app delivery services.
Today, Cameyo has expanded the VAD capability of its platform by announcing full support for the virtual delivery of Linux applications and web apps. As with the existing service for Windows applications, Linux and non-Windows web apps can be securely delivered to any device, including Chromebooks. But with Cameyo for Linux, non-Windows apps can now be delivered via Linux servers, eliminating the need for and cost of Windows or Microsoft servers or the licenses required to run them. One Fortune 500 company reported that Cameyo for Linux save the company $840,000 in a single year by eliminating costly RDS CALs needed for its more than 10,000 employees.
Here’s a closer look at the all-new Cameyo for Linux
Cameyo for Linux is included with existing Cameyo plans and it can be used to spin up a Linux server for app delivery in the same integrated dashboard. These applications can be accessed on any device, regardless of the OS. Linux applications delivered via Cameyo enjoy the same security protocols as Windows apps and Cameyo negates the need for free-standing VPNs or firewalls.
What clients are saying
“Here at Sanmina we’re always looking for ways to make our operations more secure, efficient, and cost-effective. This is what originally brought us to Cameyo, and we’ve used Cameyo for several years to give our employees secure access to all of their apps on Chromebooks. Now with Cameyo for Linux, we’re able to deliver several of our internal web apps on Linux servers instead of Windows servers. Because of the efficiency of Linux, Cameyo for Linux will allow us to serve more users per server. This also eliminates the need for RDS CALs, which dramatically reduces the cost of our digital workspace initiatives while giving us more flexibility.”Mario Zúñiga, IT Director, Digital Workplace at Sanmina
