Cameyo adds support for Linux apps to their Cloud Desktops

Cameyo, a Virtual App Delivery provider, today is announcing support for Linux apps for the first time. The company’s platform has already allowed “delivery of Windows, SaaS, and internal web apps to any device,” now adds Linux apps, which for companies that don’t rely on apps needing to be run on Windows Servers, could significantly reduce costs.

For companies that already run Linux apps but have been struggling to deploy them remotely with the move to hybid and remote work, the ability to run Linux apps in a browser could also provide big benefits.

According to a Cameyo press release:

Cameyo is the only virtualization solution that enables organizations to deliver all of their apps – including Windows apps – without delivering the full Windows desktop. This provides organizations of all sizes with a Windows OS-independent Cloud Desktop, which gives them the freedom to adopt any device, OS, and cloud they want without fear of being locked into the Microsoft environment. Cameyo also recently received its second issued patent for its Temporary User Profiles technology, which make it easier for enterprises to move to the cloud by eliminating the on-premises components that make legacy virtualization solutions so costly and complex – including Active Directory, roaming users profiles, network drive mapping, VPNs, and more

Cameyo is a cloud native solution, bringing Windows, SaaS, and now Linux apps to any device using their Cloud Desktop, which users can log in to and run from any device, securely. Companies are still required to carry licenses for any Microsoft or other proprietary software, this isn’t an end-around to licensing, but with the new ability to run Linux apps, companies can now both reduce Microsoft licensing costs by using no cost Linux applications, and also Windows Server costs needed to run Windows apps.
