Arm processors are powering the next generation of communications devices. Arm customers have produced over 200 billion Arm-based chips to date. Arm partner ecosystem is building on the pervasiveness, performance, and proven quality of the Arm technology platform to take computing everywhere.
But it is not just communication devices where the Arm architecture excels…this transformation extends into the next generation of cloud-hosted workloads and services. The Arm architecture is making it more efficient, high-performing, and environmentally friendly to stream these workloads to the browser.
In collaboration with Arm, Kasm Technologies, has developed Kasm Workspaces as a Container Streaming® platform that provides remote workspaces, powered by Arm and streamed directly to your web browser. The technical collaboration between Kasm Technologies and Arm includes research and development on the KasmVNC open-source technology used for streaming desktops, browsers and applications to the browser.
Powering the KasmVNC project with Arm-based processors delivers several benefits including Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) architecture extension for the Arm Neoverse line of processors for improving the Kasm streaming graphics rendering capabilities. Workspaces customers can expect a 48% increase in WebP video encoding. Initial testing indicates 24% increase in the analysis phase of encoding, resulting in smoother rendering, reduced bandwidth and an approximate 20% decrease in compute costs when leveraging the Arm Neoverse-powered Amazon Web Services (AWS) Graviton processors.
This technical collaboration resulted in Kasm being selected as the winner of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Graviton Challenge Contest in the category of Best Adoption for Startups and was presented as a chalk talk at AWS re:Invent 2021.
Kasm Workspaces is the modern alternative to legacy Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) offerings, such as Citrix Workspaces and VMWare Horizons, making use of compute/GPU optimized containers, rather than full-stack operating systems. Kasm utilizes Arm-powered high-efficiency computing workloads to provide Containerized Desktop Infrastructure® (CDI) solutions with significant benefits over traditional platforms:
By using Arm-powered workloads, DaaS service providers utilizing the Kasm Workspace platform can establish a simple and scalable infrastructure with reduced operational costs for both resources and manpower. Additionally, the DaaS users benefit from the enhanced performance of the service, increased compatibility with hardware deployments, and more efficient resource utilization for cost-savings.
