Cameyo, a software virtualization company, has announced its integration with Google's ChromeOS, enabling Virtual App Delivery (VAD) services. This integration allows Windows applications to run alongside Chrome applications on Chromebooks without the need for a virtual desktop. The collaboration between Cameyo and ChromeOS promises to offer businesses a seamless, secure, and cost-effective solution for app delivery.
Cameyo's ChromeOS VAD integration facilitates organizations to deliver a range of applications, including Windows, Linux, SaaS, and internal web apps, over the web without the necessity for specific cloud data centers or devices.
Mario Zúñiga, IT Director, Digital Workplace at Fortune 500 manufacturer Sanmina, said in the official announcement that “deploying apps with ChromeOS and Cameyo is remarkably simple… It was very easy to get set up, and ongoing management is a breeze – especially when compared to traditional virtual desktop approaches”.
According to an Economic Validation study by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) cited in the official announcement, organizations that transitioned from traditional virtual desktops to Virtual App Delivery with ChromeOS and Cameyo experienced a 54% reduction in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). This makes the integration a cost-effective solution for businesses.
The integration of Cameyo with ChromeOS not only simplifies app delivery but also enhances security. Mario Zúñiga emphasized the security benefits, stating, “One of the biggest draws of migrating to ChromeOS was its security. This integration, and the fact that Cameyo has a zero-trust security model baked in at its core, adds additional layers of security so that we can confidently enable our employees to work from anywhere, on any device, with the utmost security.”
