NICE DCV Provides Customers with Enhanced HPC Capabilities, Ease of Access and Cost Savings

WALTHAM, MALeostream, a leading provider of secure high performance remote access, today announced its integration with NICE DCV, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) high-performance remote display protocol that provides customers with a secure way to deliver remote desktops from any cloud or data center to any device. With the power of NICE DCV, Leostream customers can run remote visualization in high performance computing (HPC) workloads.

 Leostream provides the critical connection-broker technology required for enterprises to achieve successful large-scale VDI, hosted desktop, or hosted application environments in both private and public clouds. The Leostream Connection Broker is vendor-independent, enabling enterprises to integrate the complex  array of clients, back-end systems and protocols required for successful hosted desktop and application. 

With NICE DCV and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), customers using Leostream can run graphics-intensive applications remotely on Amazon EC2 instances, and stream the user interface to client machines, eliminating the need for expensive dedicated workstations. Customers across a broad range of HPC workloads can use NICE DCV for their remote visualization requirements.  There is no additional charge to use NICE DCV on Amazon EC2.

“With native support for AWS, and a robust connection management and remote access feature set, our customers can manage their entire IT environment all from within the  Leostream platform,” said Karen Gondoly, CEO, Leostream. “Now with our advanced integration with NICE DCV, customers, working with high performance graphics, can stream the visualization to remote clients, eliminating the need for expensive dedicated workstations. This is a huge cost and time savings for enterprise organizations.”

Hosting complex simulation and modeling applications is the best way to optimize resource utilization and maximize ROI. Leostream helps connect users to the appropriate application or desktop, using the appropriate high-performance display protocol, based on policy settings such as location and client device. 

Leostream’s logging provides organizations with audit-level tracking of machine usage and gives administrators control over how long a user retains ownership of a machine. Organizations can maximize utilization by sharing resources among users by leveraging Leostream pools and policies.
