NICE Launches Remote Viz in the Cloud

NICE Test Drive DCV

For 17 years NICE has been delivering grid- and cloud-based solutions aimed at enhancing user productivity and optimizing computing resources. The company’s NICE Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV) product provides remote access 2D/3D interactive applications over a standard network. Now through a partnership with Amazon Web Services, potential users can test drive DCV in the EC2 cloud.

AWS Test Drive showcases the performance of NICE DCV using AWS graphics-accelerated G2 instances, which enable demanding visual applications to operate smoothly in the cloud. The service is preconfigured with sample 3D applications and models to run real workloads and supports DirectX and OpenGL.

The company says it has worked with AWS to tune the performance of NICE DCV on G2 instances on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). The setup allows customers to run a large number of graphic intensive applications, commonly used in such industries as oil and gas, energy, automotive, aerospace, industrial manufacturing, life sciences and others.

Test Drive is initially available on Windows AMIs, but support for Linux will be added soon, according to NICE. A link to the service can be accessed from the NICE website at www.nice-software.com/testdrive. Interested parties will also need to download the accelerated DCV End-station, available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS/X systems.
