The eyeOS Web Engine is eyeOS VDI served into HTML5 web browsers. It virtualizes on premise Legacy Apps, Microsoft Office and other local heavy-duty productivity Apps like Autocad or Photoshop for their remote delivery into eyeOS Web Desktop Interface.
eyeOS virtualization solution is particularly well suited to DaaS or companies willing to implement BYOD policies since no pre-installed software is required on the client device. High performance in terms of latency and bandwidth consumption makes it a true mobility solution too: user experience remains excellent even with 3G connectivity.
The key benefits
|Agentless||no need for pre-installed software on the local device|
|Multi devices||All tablets and smartphones ship with html5 browsers|
|Inexpensive||eyeOS Web Engine is built on top of an Open Source stack|
|OK in slow connections||the engine sends low level graphical orders with little bandwidth consumption|
|Multimedia ready||embedded videos are extracted from the virtualization process for direct streaming into the browser|
|Multi OS||Can run both Windows and Linux Desktops|
How is built
eyeOS Web Engine is a stack made of Hypervisor KVM, RedHat’s Open Source SPICE remoting protocol and eyeOS Web connector. Virtual Machines Management is handled by OpenStack, Ovirt or IBM’s native solution in its PureFlex Appliances, depending on the client or the MSP infrastructure where the solution is going to be deployed.
Thanks to KVM hypervisor, eyeOS Web engine can run both Windows and Linux VMs. This is an appealing option in cases the applications to be virtualized can on run on Linux. But more importantly, KVM is proving to be an excellent hypervisor for Windows VMs even though this hypervisor has gained fame in the Linux World.
