New partnership with NVIDIA GRID

NICE is proud to announce that it has become a NVIDIA GRID Software Virtualization Solution Partner.

With NICE Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV), users can leverage the power of NVIDIA GRID GPUs and the flexibility to access both Linux and Windows® Virtual Desktops optimized for 3D and graphics-intensive applications.

Applications using OpenGL or Microsoft DirectX9, 10 or 11 can be controlled remotely over LAN or WAN, delivering a responsive and interactive workstation-like experience from virtually any device and over any network.

 GPU Pass Through with NICE DCV

Easy to install and use, NICE DCV offers outstanding performance regardless of which hypervisor is used and supports a broad range of GPU virtualization technologies, including NVIDIA GRID vGPU, NVIDIA GRID GPU pass-through. NICE DCV can be used in the public cloud, leveraging NVIDIA GRID® cards offered on Amazon or run directly on physical hardware, without a virtualization layer.

New partnership with Siemens PLM

Today, NICE is proud to announce that it has become a Siemens PLM Software Partner.

Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software solutions are used by more than 70,000 companies in over 80 countries, to efficiently and effectively produce some of the world’s most innovative and sophisticated products.

NICE products Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV) and EnginFrame enable Siemens PLM software solutions, including the Teamcenter, NX, and Solid Edge product lines, to be offered from a centralized infrastructure and to be remotely accessed by any device over any network. Offering Siemens PLM software over the Private or Public Cloud enables optimal IT resource allocation and sharing, reducing IT infrastructure and management costs. Running applications near well connected, consolidated data repositories boosts application performance and simplifies PLM data replication, removing all bottlenecks related to distributed workstations. By enabling any device to access the Siemens PLM software, designers and engineers benefit from increased productivity, mobility and collaboration.

NICE DCV Test Drive now available on Amazon Web Services

NICE is pleased to announce the availability of a new AWS Test Drive for NICE Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV), based the graphics-accelerated G2 instances.

This AWS Test Drive allows potential users to test the performance of NICE DCV using the high performance graphics provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS), preconfigured with sample 3D applications and models to run real life tests on the AWS Cloud.

NICE has worked with AWS to tune the performance of NICE DCV on G2 instances on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), allowing responsive and smooth interaction with highly visual graphical tools, that take advantage of Amazon EC2 hardware acceleration provided by NVIDIA Grid cards. The combination of G2 instances on Amzazon EC2 and NICE DCV uses the AWS Cloud to allow customers to run graphic intensive applications including CAD, Engineering, Geophysical, Medical or Scientific applications, enabling customers to move full High Performance Computing (HPC) processes and other highly demanding applications and workflows in the Cloud.

The new Test Drive can be accessed from NICE Web site at www.nice-software.com/testdrive and is initially available on Windows AMIs. The Test Drive lab includes some sample 3D applications and demonstation using the latest DirectX and OpenGL libraries, to immediately experience how very demanding visual applications can perform in the Cloud. Testers need to download the accelerated DCV End-station, available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS/X systems. A Linux Test Drive will be added shortly, to demonstrate the G2 performance on this popular platform as well.

NICE at Ter@Tec in Paris, France (July/1-2)

NICE will have a booth at the Ter@Tec 2014 Forum at Ecole Polytechnique, near Paris.
