Consolidating your engineering environment with remote access

Written by: OpenText | Published: 03/20

The idea of desktop virtualisation is not new, but it may be gaining new traction. The concept is straightforward. A desktop environment runs on a server in one location, and a user accesses that environment from another location. The hardware that runs applications is different than the hardware that displays those applications to the user. In essence, it’s putting your entire desktop on the cloud.

Companies like VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft have been developing tools for desktop virtualisation for nearly two decades. However, these tools have been limited. Engineers, for example, often use graphically intensive applications like CAD and simulation. Virtualising these workfows effectively has not been historically possible.
