Adaptive Computing Launches Remote Visualization

By CIOReview | Tuesday, March 1, 2016

PROVO, UT: Provider of industry leading workload and resource orchestration software, Adaptive Computing has recently announced that it has integrated Remote Visualization with Moab’s workload submission portal, Viewpoint, in order to improve ease-of-use and increase user productivity. Enterprises can integrate remote visualization with Viewpoint to avoid purchasing high-end desktops for all their knowledge workers. With this, organizations can share expensive resources over backend servers and improve productivity by avoiding the wait time of moving large data sets between users and enabling greater collaboration.

The integration is available in the latest release of Adaptive Computing’s Moab HPC Suite 9. This allows users to launch a remote visualization session via any common browser by submitting a traditional workload request through the Viewpoint portal using a remote visualization template. A remote session is then automatically generated allowing them to interact with either an entire desktop or with a specific application. This provides the benefit of saving hardware expenses through resource sharing, as well as improves productivity of a distributed workforce.

Whether working from a remote office or from home, users gain an experience close to that of running the application locally. In fact, the integrated remote visualization capabilities are on average 7 times faster than competing VNC or EOD 8 based tools when bandwidth is low or there is high network latency. This highly secure remote visualization solution enables shared sessions for collaboration purposes and allows owners to control who has mouse and keyboard control and that no guests stay on the server after the owner disconnects.

“Adaptive Computing is transforming our customers’ experience so that technology is no longer a barrier and users are more empowered in their efforts to cure cancer, build safer vehicles, and better our overall environment,” says Marty Smuin, CEO of Adaptive Computing. “This latest innovation helps automate the experience in such a way that organizations can both reduce costs through sharing and improve productivity through faster application interaction and increased collaboration.”

This solution will be sold as an add-on to Viewpoint; and will be available by the first week of  March 2016 and will help organizations gain an important competitive advantage.
