Cloud-based gaming services such as Google Stadia and GeForce Now have put software as a service in the spotlight. Much of the success of these gaming services come from a long learning curve in B2B software as a service solution.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
Digital workplaces are benefiting from more robust Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). VDI allows companies to deploy robust virtual desktop solutions that enable professionals to access the tools they need for their jobs.
Companies such as Troye allow their customers to deploy environments with high-end 2D and 3D graphics applications. These environments are accessible via the web and don’t require users to have high-end hardware.
“Give employees the freedom to work from anywhere while cutting IT costs. Preclude the need for highly expensive desktops that tie employees to their office to get their work done.”
Kurt Goodall Technical Director at Troye.
Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops with NVIDIA GRID software, and Tesla GPUs powered by Citrix Hypervisor give companies flexibility with the added benefit of centralised management.
Real-time, remote collaboration
Goodall adds that secure access can be enabled to protect critical data. He explains: “With remote workers, sharing large data files outside the secure walls of a datacentre can be a significant threat, and challenging.”
Citrix makes secure, real-time, remote collaboration on design data possible through its exceptional performance. It’s able to host 3D apps and data centrally with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops using HDX 3D Pro.
“With Citrix and NVIDIA, you can maintain control over your intellectual property without compromising performance. Users can safely exchange 3D models, 2D drawings or HD video to speed time to market in an increasingly global and competitive economy. Whether the applications are delivered from the data centre or the cloud, users can get the same high performance as a physical workstation.”
Graphics acceleration technologies
HDX 3D Pro graphic acceleration technologies support commercial design suites as well as Geographical Information System software, Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS) workstations for medical imaging and Web-based apps with hi-res imagery and video.
” Also optimise the virtualisation of rich graphics apps with HDX 3D Pro, a set of graphics acceleration technologies designed to optimise the virtualisation of rich graphics apps”.
These kinds of cloud-based solutions allow businesses to easily scale their IT spend in line with their requirements. Customers can accelerate applications for a better experience or deploy additional workstations without having to incur hardware costs.
