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.

Running FEKO remotely in the "3D Cloud" - Asti/Stellenbosch (December 10, 2012)

Asti, Italy & Stellenbosch, South Africa – December 10th, 2012. NICE and EM Software & Systems – S.A. (Pty) Ltd announce the qualification of FEKO to run on NICE DCV platforms.

Users of graphic, CPU and memory intensive applications such as FEKO often express the need to share high end computer resources located in a remote data centre. It is with this requirement in mind that NICE and EMSS S.A. are very excited to announce that EMSS S.A. has been working with NICE to bring FEKO users an advanced solution for remote access to FEKO 3D simulations and models. Through the use of NICE Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV), FEKO users now have the possibility to access their FEKO application and 3D model over LAN, WiFi and WAN from a broad range of clients including standard PCs, laptops tablets and Mac OS X devices.

 NICE DCV Architecture

EMSS S.A. thus leverages DCV to deliver a fluid, seamless, remote visualization experience directly from the FEKO instance to a user without the need to install graphics cards or other expensive hardware on the local client. This means FEKO can be manipulated while being run in a remote data centre.

DCV will take advantage of shared, powerful, Nvidia GPU-enabled hardware in the data centre while customers use a simple thin client to view, modify and interact with the FEKO models remotely. The combination of virtualization and remote access allows FEKO users to take advantage of powerful high-end Nvidia GPUs for the most complex models and effects and leverage the high speed network of the data centre.

NICE DCV is the only technology on the market that allows users to share the same GPU among different clients, both on Linux or, using multiple VMs, on Windows. In addition, multiple users can collaborate directly on a FEKO model using DCV to share sessions.

Thanks to the extensive testing carried out by EMSS S.A. and NICE, EMSS S.A. is confident and pleased to recommend DCV as a tool to run graphics-intensive FEKO models on a cluster while visualizing such models directly on a desktop (Mac, Windows or Linux), laptop, tablet or iPad.

Please contact your local FEKO distributor or NICE for more information if you are interested in exploring NICE DCV as virtualisation option.

About NICE and NICE DCV:

NICE delivers Cloud and Technical Computing / HPC solutions for companies and institutions. This includes the industry leading EnginFrame web portal, the CloudFrame solution and the Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV) remote 3D protocol. NICE Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV) addresses computer limitations leveraging the power of server-side GPUs, and delivering hardware-accelerated 3D graphics over a standard TCP/IP network using dynamically adjustable image quality to allow users to experience fluid 3D interaction over LAN, WiFi and WAN, from standard PCs or mobile devices. The combination of virtualization and remote access allows off-the-shelf 3D applications to be consolidated in a Public or Private "3D Cloud", rendering the most complex models and effects with negligible overhead compared to native GPU performance, while leveraging the high speed network of the data center to work faster, leaving the data where it's best managed and performing.
