PCoIP-based technology will provide IMSCAD customers with a ‘secured, high-performance’ solution to run on existing workstations
IMSCAD has added HP Anyware to its portfolio of remote work solutions for graphics-intensive applications, including CAD.
According to Adam Jull, IMSCAD CEO, HP Anyware is one step before VDI, “It will provide customers with a secured, high-performance solution running on their existing workstations,” he says.
HP Anyware allows users and teams to be flexible and access their digital workspaces from virtually any device, in any location with a network connection.
It uses the PC-over-IP (PColP) protocol to stream highly interactive desktop displays between almost any host (cloud, data centre, edge, workstation) and end-user device (PC, Mac, laptop or tablet) without any data ever leaving the safety of the customer’s network.
According to IMSCAD, HP Anyware allows users to enjoy ‘lossless image quality and near-perfect text clarity’ from the PCoIP, which almost mirrors the user experience of working at a desktop or workstation under your desk.
HP Anyware has evolved from Teradici CAS and HP ZCentral Remote Boost to provide remote access to workstations – desktop, virtual or cloud. HP acquired Teradici in 2021.
Meanwhile HP recently announced new ‘Sapphire Rapids’ Intel Xeon W-2400 / W-3400 workstations, the HP Z4, Z6, Z8 and Z8 Fury G5. The company also upped its game in remote management, with a view to bringing server level management capabilities to its HP Z Workstations.
The company’s new hardware-based HP Anyware Remote System Controller allows IT administrators to launch a kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) session and perform out-out-of-band management tasks such as pre-boot access, BIOS updates and re-imaging from anywhere.
