New Cameyo Session Sync Technology Provides Persistent Storage of Each User’s Settings and Files from Session to Session for a Seamless Experience
CARY, N.C. – JUNE 12, 2019 – One of the least discussed but most pervasive roadblocks to organizations’ Digital Transformation plans is the inability to provide people with access to the Windows-based applications they need to be productive on any device, from the cloud. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and traditional application virtualization technologies were not built for the cloud and result in slow application performance and bad user experiences.
That all changes with Cameyo, the cloud-native Windows Application Transformation Platform (ATP) that modernizes the secure delivery of Windows desktop applications from any browser. And today, Cameyo is further improving the customer experience by announcing its new Cameyo Session Sync technology, which provides persistent storage of a user’s settings and files that follow the user from session to session.
“Digital Transformation progress is constantly held back by the lack of full-functionality applications when making the cloud shift. CXOs often issue ‘cloud first’ mandates that result in unintended consequences for their users’ application experience, either leaving their teams with a substantial functionality deficit or committing the organization to a massive OPEX/CAPEX path with VDI,” said Mark Bowker, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “Cameyo uniquely enables the CXO to complete their Digital Transformation journey and gives both IT and line of business a fully functional customer experience.”
Persistent Storage Delivers a Seamless Experience
With Cameyo’s new Session Sync technology, everything a user does during a Cameyo session is synced to and from Google Cloud Storage. Users (and their applications) are presented a virtualized view of their very own data and settings, regardless of the cloud instance they are being served from, and regardless of how many users are being served from the instance during that time. Cameyo’s cloud instances are multi-tenant and stateless, therefore users are always connected to the most quickly-available, resource-optimal, and cost-effective instance. Unlike other products, Cameyo is the only solution that works on a one-to-many basis. A single cloud instance can serve many users at once, and a single user can be working on multiple instances at once.
“Cameyo already enables organizations to provide their people with access to all of the critical Windows applications that they need from any device – with the complete functionality of the desktop versions – from any browser,” said Andrew Miller, CEO of Cameyo. “And now with Cameyo Session Sync, we have completed our vision of providing users with an experience where they see the same files and data as if they were running their applications from a single, dedicated Windows machine. Organizations can now ensure that the user experience from session to session is seamless – without having to maintain an entire VDI infrastructure – which increases productivity and efficiency while removing one of the final hurdles to achieving their digital transformation goals.”
Optimized for Any Environment – Cloud, Hybrid, or On Premises
Cameyo’s Application Transformation Platform (ATP) with Session Sync is uniquely designed to be used in any environment and is available as a fully hosted service or can be installed in any environment, including on premises.
- Cameyo Fully Hosted is hosted on Google Cloud Platform, one of the premiere public clouds with data centers located throughout the world.
- Cameyo Self Hosted is hosted on-premises in the customer environment, which provides increased security and integration with backend services, such as Active Directory.
A Better Experience, Without Sacrificing Compliance
Cameyo provides users the ability to see all their files and download those files from the browser. This can be an important productivity enabler, but depending on the industry you are in, this could also be a potential compliance issue. The Cameyo Session Sync technology includes the ability for organizations to turn off the download capability, which can help ensure ongoing PCI compliance by eliminating the ability for users to download sensitive files locally to their device.
Pricing and Availability
Cameyo Session Sync is available to all Cameyo users today and is included in the platform’s monthly subscription fees.
