NICE is pleased to announce the general availability of EnginFrame 2017, our powerful and easy to use web front-end for accessing Technical and Scientific Applications on-premises and in the cloud.
Since the NICE acquisition by Amazon Web Services (AWS), many customers asked us how to make the HPC experience in the Cloud as simple as the one they have on premises, while still leveraging the elasticity and flexibility that it provides. While we stay committed to delivering new and improved capabilities for on-premises deployments, like the new support for Citrix® XenDesktop® and the new HTML5 file transfer widgets, EnginFrame 2017 is our first step into making HPC easier to deploy and use in AWS, even without an in-depth knowledge of its APIs and rich service offering. What’s new in EnginFrame 2017:
The new features are immediately available for all the EnginFrame product lines:
Also this year, NICE is excited to participate in the Supercomputing Conference (SC) 2016 in Salt Lake City (USA). NICE will be exhibiting at booth #3618.
NICE, together with Amazon Web Services, will present the most recent achievements and success stories. In the booth's mini-theater you can attend presentations from NICE, AWS and our partners.
If you are planning to participate in the event, our team will be happy to meet and update you on the latest version of NICE Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV) and the new features of the upcoming NICE EnginFrame 2016:
We will also show how can be easy to deploy an on-demand HPC cluster with EnginFrame on AWS , leveraging the new integration with CfnCluster.
NICE team will have also two speeches at HP Cast: Date: Saturday, November 12th – Tutorial Section - 08:00 - 10:00 Title: A new flexibility to deploy tailored and hybrid/distributed HPC environments Abstract: Customers demand flexibility on their infrastructure. They need a new technology that can be the foundation for combining high performance computing, big data, and private and public cloud environments
Date: Saturday, November 12th – Tutorial Section - 13:30 – 14:30 Title: The Virtual Workstation in the Cloud Abstract: Today's availability of powerful graphics cards in the cloud, enable moving the engineer's workstation seamlessly into the Cloud to realizing the concept of a Virtual Workstation.

A few years ago, Andrea Rodolico and Keith Horton did a presentation on “Using Catia V5 in a private Cloud”. During that presentation they introduced NICE DCV, a new 3D virtualization and image compression solution, including an overview of the architecture and functionalities. Now, with the Cloud and many new technologies becoming mainstream, it’s time for an update. This presentation will provide you with an overview of latest enhancements and new features that the Private Workstation Cloud offers today. Keith Horton will be here to talk about how the project has progressed over the last several years, lessons learned, and what the future holds.
Andrea, an entrepreneur since 1994, co-founded NICE and, since then, has led the technology strategies of the company. He has evolved their Grid, Cloud and Remote 3D Visualization products and solutions to meet the most challenging needs of many Fortune 2000 companies, including Oil & Gas, Aerospace, Automotive, Financial Services, Life Sciences, and Research customers worldwide.
Keith Horton currently manages all Engineering, and Manufacturing applications for “The NORDAM Group”. He is also the Engineering Systems Architect, responsible for all Hardware, HPC, and Visualization environments. He has been with “The NORDAG Group” for over 12 years, and has been working in Aerospace for over 15. Prior to his Aerospace endeavors, Keith has worked in Automotive, and Defense industries.
NICE is pleased to announce the final release of DCV version 2016, the remote visualization technology that enables Technical Computing users to remotely access 2D/3D interactive applications over a LAN or WAN networks.
DCV allows engineers and scientists to take full advantage of the high-end graphics cards, fast I/O performance, and large memory nodes hosted in public or private clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Coupled with NICE EnginFrame, DCV allows ISVs and customers to build end-to-end, interactive and batch, HPC or design processes in the cloud. NICE DCV also provides desktop sharing capabilities — concurrent access to the same 3D interactive session among multiple users — that enable distributed teams to collaborate in the cloud.
What’s new in NICE DCV 2016:
The new release has been presented at SC15 and it's now general available to the public. NICE customers with a valid support contract can download the new release and access the documentation.
