Organizations throughout MEA are adopting Azure to enable large-scale remote work today, but also to prepare for the 'new normal' after COVID-19. By extending our advanced features that were previously only available in our fully hosted service to Azure, ASG Africa's customers can now experience the full cost savings, enhanced user experience, and infrastructure reduction benefits of Cameyo while bringing their own existing Azure cloud - or by working with ASG to move to Azure,

Andrew Miller, Co-Founder and CEO of Cameyo.



Beginning today, ASG Africa customers can experience the following benefits of Cameyo:

• Greater Control and Compliance – Simplified compliance for organizations in highly-regulated industries by utilizing Cameyo within their own instance of Azure.

• Cost Savings – With Cameyo advanced provisioning, Azure customers have access to features like elasticity and usage optimization to dynamically spin servers up and down based on demand and automatically move servers into hibernation mode ensuring organizations don't pay for 24/7 servers when they aren't being used.

• Enhanced User Experience – Cameyo's Session Sync technology enables a user's settings and files follow them from session to session, ensuring a seamless user experience. And because Cameyo enables users to experience the full desktop version of their applications directly from the browser, users have nothing new to learn.

• Infrastructure Reduction – Unlike VDI which increases the infrastructure you need to manage, and therefore the cost and complexity, Cameyo's cloud-native platform reduces infrastructure and costs by up to 80% compared to Citrix/VDI.

• Increased Security – By separating applications from the OS and making them available via the browser, Cameyo helps ensure that malware on the user's machine doesn't have access to their application sessions. And Cameyo's RDP Port Shield technology proactively protects customers from RDP vulnerabilities that can lead to brute force attacks and ransomware.

Getting Started

Any organization can get started with Cameyo in minutes by loading the applications they want to publish to their users to the Cameyo platform. Cameyo seamlessly integrates with Office 365, G Suite, Okta, Ping ID and most Single Sign-On (SSO) providers giving organizations the ability to manage authentication, permissions, users, and groups with no additional work. Once published, the organization's users can securely access all of these legacy Windows apps from the browser, enabling them to utilize the apps on any device. Users can start work on one device and finish on another thanks to Cameyo's Session Sync technology that provides data resiliency across sessions.

Pricing and Availability

For organizations throughout MEA, Cameyo is available via ASG Africa immediately. For organizations looking to move to Azure, ASG Africa can get them set up on local instances of Azure depending on location. For organizations in South Africa, ASG Africa will be working with Tarsus on Demand, a world-class Indirect CSP provider, to provide a local version of Azure.

Scale Computing | September 23, 2021

Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, announced ongoing momentum with customers in the public sector. The company’s HC3 Edge and IT infrastructure solutions continue to enable municipal institutions of all sizes to optimize operations with self-healing, automated infrastructure for all applications while protecting sensitive government data. “In today’s world, IT management is tasked more than ever with simplifying infrastructure and delivering solutions to employees and citizens that mitigate risks in a whole new way. IT departments need to ensure that hardware and software are reliable, remotely accessible, and protected against cyberthreats,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. “Scale Computing meets the complicated IT infrastructure demands of state and local governments. Our agile, reliable platforms can replace traditional IT infrastructure across any agency, any department, or any system, while driving out the high costs of downtime and system administration.” Scale Computing brings municipal institutions, including governments, government agencies, and other public institutions, into a new era of computing by revamping IT operations with a solution that simplifies management, protects sensitive government data, and helps deliver smart, digital services. Kitselas First Nation is a self-funded and self-governing nation, and one of the 14 Tsimshian tribes in British Columbia. After experiencing a flood, Kitselas First Nation needed new servers and a modern solution for simplicity, scalability, availability and disaster recovery. With only one person on the IT staff, they were also in need of powerful systems capable of running workloads with efficiency and speed, as well as an affordable, easy-to-use solution capable of maximizing uptime. Kitselas First Nation selected Scale Computing’s HC3 platform which provides them with simplified, highly affordable IT infrastructure with improved performance. Since implementation of Scale Computing HC3, Kitselas First Nation saved resources and 15% of time spent managing infrastructure, leading to an increase in time spent working on other projects. Scale Computing’s HC3 solution also provides Kitselas First Nation with disaster recovery and the ability to manage IT infrastructure without the need for local IT staff. Don Agnew, IT support and asset management officer at Kitselas First Nation, says, “We have an on-site backup and a Google Cloud Platform in Quebec. If another disaster strikes, the hardware component fails or the entire HC3 appliance breaks down, we’re covered. The Scale Computing HC3 cluster is highly available and keeps our systems running with no downtime. HC3 won’t let us down.” The Summit County Board of Elections in Ohio is responsible for securely managing the records of 370,000 registered voters and over one million citizen records. As Ohio’s fourth most populous county, the Summit County Board of Elections' entire network infrastructure is managed by a team of just two full-time IT professionals. With an aging server infrastructure and a heavily scrutinized Presidential election fast approaching in 2020, this IT duo needed to modernize their systems, comply with strict new security directives, and do so in an expedited time-frame. After selecting Scale Computing’s HC3 solution, the Summit County Board of Elections was able to consolidate seven servers to a cluster of three HC3 notes in less than seven months, implement automated snapshots of servers that are backed up to a remote cluster providing full system redundancy, simplify management and operations so their two-person IT team could focus on operational priorities, and comply with new state and Federal security directives. As Kevin Moreland, Network & Systems Administrator, Summit County Board of Elections says, “Every decision we make comes down to, ‘can you make it through a Presidential election’? We knew we needed something that was intelligent, scalable, had built-in redundancy, and was cost-effective. Scale has delivered on all of these and more. We went from an environment where we had about seven physical servers to a three node cluster. From that three node cluster, then we can spin up as many virtual servers as warranted by demand – this not only simplified our operational workload but it also dramatically shrunk our eco-footprint.” Chris Iseral, Chief Information Officer of Madison County, Kentucky, was challenged with upgrading old infrastructure in an affordable way. The infrastructure in Madison Country includes 700 users in 26 different facilities across the country, accounting for 23 different departments or agencies. Chris’ challenges included multiple vendors and an expensive, complicated, and aging infrastructure. Madison County, Kentucky partnered with Scale Computing to deliver high quality, responsive, and budget friendly infrastructure that simplifies management, protects sensitive government data, and helps deliver smart, digital services anywhere, anytime. As Chris Iseral says, “We wanted something highly available, redundant, scalable, affordable, and easy-to-use. We’re happier than we’ve ever been. Scale Computing has been an awesome product.” About Scale Computing Scale Computing is a leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions.

Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, announced today the general availability of Red Hat’s migration toolkit for virtualization, which will assist organizations in accelerating available hybrid cloud strategies by making it easier to migrate existing workloads to modern infrastructure in a streamlined, wholesale manner. IT companies may have a faster, more scalable modernization experience while minimizing possible risks and downtime by bringing mission-critical applications based on virtual machines (VMs) to Red Hat OpenShift. As more companies start containers and cloud-native technologies, IT teams are being challenged with handling old systems and workloads, many of which may be running on infrastructure or resources incompatible with current computing realities. Without the proper tools, modernizing these deployments may be time-consuming, costly, and overwhelming for developers, IT operations teams, and business users. Red Hat introduced OpenShift Virtualization in 2020 to assist companies in breaking down application barriers between traditional and cloud-native workloads. Red Hat advanced traditional application stacks into a layer of open innovation with OpenShift Virtualization, allowing clients to transform at their own pace truly. As this trend continues, Red Hat collaborates with customers and partners to modernize and move projects to offer cloud-native capabilities via migration toolkits included with OpenShift.

Vultr Talon Cloud Virtualization Provider Now Available on Beta

Vultr | May 27, 2022

Vultr, a leading independent cloud infrastructure provider, announced today that Vultr Talon, powered by NVIDIA GPUs and NVIDIA AI Enterprise software, is currently in beta. Vultr Talon, a ground-breaking cloud-based platform, enables GPU sharing, allowing several workloads to execute effectively on a single NVIDIA GPU. Vultr is the first cloud service to provide GPU sharing by virtualizing NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs. Vultr is launching a set of virtual machine (VM) packages incorporating the NVIDIA A100 today, with prices beginning at $90 per month, or $0.13 per hour. Breakthrough Cloud Platform Enabling AI Workloads at a Fraction of the Cost Vultr Talon is powered by a cutting-edge NVIDIA GPU virtualization technology based on NVIDIA's vGPU software. Rather than connecting whole real GPUs to VMs, Vultr adds just a portion in the form of a virtual GPU (vGPU). The NVIDIA AI Enterprise software package, which incorporates NVIDIA vGPU software and is geared for remotely performing AI workloads and high-performance data analytics, powers these vGPUs. A vGPU appears to a customer's system just like an actual GPU. Each vGPU has its own devoted memory, which is a fraction of the memory on the underlying card. The vGPU has access to a fraction of the computing capacity of the actual GPU. NVIDIA's Multi-Instance GPU (MIG) technology is utilized for Vultr plans with at least 10GB of GPU RAM to give tenants with assured QoS, completely isolated GPU high-bandwidth memory cache, and dedicated compute cores. High-end GPUs can cost hundreds of dollars per month to rent. While this cost is often justified for the most demanding corporate workloads, for many enterprises and developers, the cost of even a single GPU might be prohibitive to getting started, experimenting, or running apps in development and testing environments. Even organizations with large IT budgets may wind up losing money by supplying more GPU capacity than required or just electing not to use GPUs at all. At Vultr, we pride ourselves on making high-performance cloud infrastructure affordable for everyone. With Vultr Talon, we have turned the GPU delivery model upside down. Because of our breakthrough cloud platform, AI developers and data scientists can provision exactly as much NVIDIA GPU processing as they actually need, at prices they can afford.” J.J. Kardwell, CEO of Vultr’s parent company,
