"Unlike other remote desktop solutions, collaboration via Scyld Cloud Workstation is more like sitting in-person with other engineers because a user can hand off control of their desktop to simplify collaboration on a project", stated Victor Gregorio, Vice President and General Manager, Cloud Services, Penguin Computing. "Scyld Cloud Workstation brings collaboration to life, providing a much more thorough and proficient interaction among researchers and engineers working together on a remote desktop. Ultimately, this allows customers a more efficient means to leverage Cloud-based desktop solutions."
Scyld Cloud Workstation provides secure, easy remote access to Linux and Windows workstation-class desktops through standard, modern web browsers, and eliminating the need for client-side installations and changes to firewall policies. Scyld Cloud Workstation offers significant time savings by removing the requirement to download large data files, and moving pre- and post-processing to the Cloud for highly efficient workflow.
Additional new features found in Scyld Cloud Workstation 3.0 are:
"Downloading simulation results files from the Cloud can take more time than the simulation itself", stated Amir Isfahani, Vice President of Sales and Business Development, Flow Science Inc. "With Scyld Cloud Workstation, users set up their simulations through the graphical user interface as if they were sitting at a workstation that is connected to thousands of compute nodes, then post-process and visualize results right there on the their virtual desktop. Users now only need to download the images and videos for their reports and presentations rather than the entire results data sets."
Scyld Cloud Workstation 3.0 is available for on-premises installations and is also a featured option on Penguin Computing On-Demand (POD) - the company's public HPC cloud that provides supercomputing capabilities on-demand and on a pay-as-you-go basis.
