Has the mobile computing revolution come the HPC? Today Adaptive Computing and NICE Software announced the Technical Visualization Private Cloud, which 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.
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. It’s 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.
