I was just reading a great article by Erica Mixon of TechTarget's SearchEnterpriseDesktop and SearchVirtualDesktop sites where she provides three great tips on preparing for the upcoming Windows 7 deadline. As you likely know, official support for Windows 7 ends on January 14, 2020. After that, technical assistance and software updates will no longer be available for Windows 7.
As cloud-based solutions and user mobility become more mainstream, there's a lot of buzz surrounding virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments like Citrix, VMware and Windows Virtual Desktop. And for some organizations that are looking to deliver virtual desktops to their end users, large-scale VDI solutions like these may make sense.
What’s more important - security or user experience? It’s a trick question, of course - especially when talking about virtual application delivery. If a virtual application delivery product isn’t secure, that’s an obvious non-starter. And if the user experience isn’t great, then your people won’t use it. Or worse, they’ll find some shadow IT workaround.
Every IT admin knows that if they aren’t able to provide their people with a good user experience, then those people are going to point the finger right back at IT and blame them for that poor experience. One area where this finger-pointing is notoriously prevalent occurs during the use of virtual desktops to enable virtual application delivery.
I recently came across a brilliant blog post from Brian Madden at VMware entitled “How to convince your users that VDI is good for them.” The post makes a particularly salient point at the end, which is this: “Only use VDI where it makes sense!”
Cloud shift is in full swing and with it comes cloud migration challenges. Gartner projects that by 2020 more than $1 trillion in IT spending will be directly or indirectly affected by the shift to the cloud, making it “one of the most disruptive forces since the early days of the digital age.”
In a world where K-12 school districts focus on cloud-first strategies and one-to-one computing initiatives, are expensive PC labs necessary? When schools are turning to Chromebook and iPad for cheaper hardware and easier management to reduce costs, they find that there are still edge cases that still involve purchasing a PC lab to support a handful of Windows applications. Cameyo eliminates...
The following is a case study Google published on the Google Cloud Blog. Click here to see the actual post.
Hard to believe it's 2019. If you have been keeping up with Cameyo news, you know that in 2018 we actively partnered with Google to deliver Windows applications to any device from the cloud, to include Chromebooks.
Traditional application virtualization has a bad rap. We constantly hear horror stories of how difficult it is to deploy, how complex it is to manage and how expensive it is. Press articles have been dedicated to sharing the difficulties of the technology. At Cameyo, we have done what was once thought to be impossible. We made application virtualization simple, easy to manage and cost...
