Cameyo Application Virtualization Integrates with Dropbox
Virtual applications (also called portable applications) can be used without prior installation. They can be moved from one computer to another through USB keys, email or FTP. Today Cameyo announces integration with Dropbox, allowing applications to literally run from the cloud. Furthermore, application’s settings and profiles are also saved and synchronized across the cloud, providing a new edge in software mobility.

Apps that can run anywhere:

  • Before the age of portable applications, Windows users had to install software on their PCs before they could use them. Today, with application virtualization, most programs can be made portable and launched without prior installation. This works by virtualizing application’s access to the file-system & registry into Cameyo’s virtual repository where the entire application’s ecosystem, including files, registry, DLLs, is stored.
  • Today with Cameyo + Dropbox, one can simply copy & paste their favorite apps to the Dropbox drive. The app can then run from any other computer synchronizing with this Dropbox account.
  • Profiles, settings, data moved to the cloud
  • Cameyo’s synchronization with the Dropbox cloud is revolutionary. It literally means applications can work with data, files and registry that are stored in the Dropbox cloud.

For example, one can put a virtual version of their favorite browser on their Dropbox folder. When surfing the Web, one can save their bookmarks, forms, history. Then, moving to a different Dropbox-synchronized computer, the same browser with all of its browsing history & data is available.

By integrating with cloud technology, Cameyo products effectively take Windows applications directly to cloud storage instead of the traditional local filesystem & registry.
