Key takeaways:

  • Cameyo’s new integration of Virtual App Delivery with ChromeOS enables Windows and Linux apps to seamlessly operate on ChromeOS devices.
  • This integration streamlines app accessibility, optimizing resource usage and cutting TCO by 54%.
  • The service also enhances security, employing a Zero Trust model for isolated interactions, safeguarding users and data while enabling versatile app utilization.

Cameyo has a new app accessibility feature with this latest update: a seamless integration of its Virtual App Delivery (VAD) service with ChromeOS. The service empowers organizations to traverse platform boundaries, unleashing the potential to run Windows and Linux applications on ChromeOS devices.

Cameyo is a technology company that provides application virtualization solutions for organizations. It offers a platform that allows developers to package Windows applications into standalone executable files. This approach allows remote users to access these virtualized apps from any device without traditional installation.

The new integration allows organizations to deploy any app (such as Windows, Linux, SaaS, and internal web apps) on Chromebooks and Chromeboxes. The service will run these applications as progressive Web apps (PWAs) alongside other apps already installed on the device. This means that users can access local files and folders within the virtual instances. Users can stream the virtual apps from the cloud or on-premises data centers.

“The ChromeOS Virtual App Delivery with Cameyo service separates apps from the device, running apps completely from the cloud, enabling the service to dynamically provide the right level of resources needed to run any app. This enables organizations to utilize all of their applications, including graphics-intensive applications that traditionally have greater hardware requirements,” Google explained.

Cameyo’s integration with ChromeOS reduces licensing cost

Cameyo claims that its service helps to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by 54 percent compared to virtual desktops. It provides an affordable solution to help organizations make third-party apps more accessible on ChromeOS devices. ChromeOS’s integration with the service also offers various “multi-layered security” advantages.

“Both ChromeOS and Cameyo are built with a Zero Trust security model that ensures apps and devices are isolated from network resources and segmented by default so that users only access the apps and data they need to get their jobs done, all while eliminating the need to expose firewall and server ports to the open internet,” Cameyo noted.

Cameyo’s Virtual App Delivery services integration with ChromeOS is available for enterprise customers worldwide. However, organizations would need to purchase Chrome Enterprise Upgrade and Cameyo licenses separately to leverage the product integrations. The service costs $264 per user per year in a fully hosted arrangement or $132 per user per year in a self-hosted setup.
