Adaptive Computing and NICE Software Deliver A Joint Solution For Visualization Workload Optimization

Guildford, UK (PRWEB UK) 5 June 2012

June 5, 2012 Adaptive Computing, managers of the worlds largest supercomputing systems and experts in HPC workload management and Cloud management solutions and NICE Software, a visualization software and services company, today announced their joint solution to deliver a Technical Visualization Private Cloud with Adaptives Moab HPC Suite and NICE Desktop Cloud Visualization (NICE DCV) and EnginFrame products. This solution makes it possible to view and manipulate complex 3D simulations remotely on PCs and mobile devices by centralizing physical or virtual visualization workstations to the data center and transferring pixels instead of data allowing a reduction in capital and management costs, an improvement in data processing, security, workforce collaboration and productivity and a reduction in network congestion. This complete solution will be demonstrated at ISC 12 in Hamburg, Germany, June 18-20, 2012 in booth # 147.

Moab HPC Suite works in concert with NICE DCV and EnginFrame to centralize access to visualization servers with OpenGL 3D applications, together transferring pixels instead of data and intelligently placing and managing graphics workloads as well as regular HPC cluster workloads. The intelligent placement and management capabilities of Moab help maximize resource utilization and ensure the success of 3D visualization applications, through intelligent policies. It also manages multiple user sessions on a single machine and enables dynamic re-provisioning of the OS and applications, improving availability and the ability to respond to workload demands.

Cloud computing is transforming business, allowing greater productivity nearly anywhere to an increasingly mobile workforce. But as technical computing workforce gets more diverse and distributed, traditional workstations quickly show bottlenecks and constraints, says Andrea Rodolico, CTO of NICE. 3D applications are in demand inside and outside of the office for employees and partners who need to process and visualize large datasets, often in geographically distributed collaborative settings. In a situation like that, computing can be a real concern. By tightly integrating DCV and EnginFrame with Moab HPC Suite, intelligent placement and management maximizes resource utilization and performance by placing and packing visualization workloads on the optimal resources using policies and ensures 3D application success.

A Technical Visualization Private Cloud moves the seat of power in 3D simulation from Linux and Windows workstations distributed throughout the enterprise to a highly efficient, secure, centralized location: a private cloud in the corporate data center. Its a natural outgrowth of Software as a Service (SaaS) and Cloud adoption. In fact, what SaaS did for 2D applications, sending business productivity applications down the wire to thin clients, is now accomplished with complex 3D technical visualization applications in the Cloud. By deploying visualization applications in the data center instead of on distributed workstations, and transferring pixels back to users systems instead of large data models, it is now possible to view and manipulate complex 3D simulations remotely on PCs and mobile devices with the NICE solution. Users can collaborate easilyanytime, anywhereon the same session, Michael Jackson, President and Co-Founder of Adaptive Computing. And compute resources, including GPUs, can be used more efficiently than ever before. Its all possible thanks to the collaborative efforts with NICE.
