Heidelberg, Germany, Oct 6, 2014 – UberCloud, a cloud computing marketplace allowing engineers, scientists and their service providers to implement end-users applications in the cloud, and NICE Software, a company dedicated to providing Technical Cloud Products and Solutions to customers worldwide, announced today the development of Cloud-enabled NICE software solutions for the UberCloud marketplace. The announcement was shared at the annual ISC Cloud Conference, an event organizing 200 researchers, engineers and consultants to discuss the latest innovations in cloud computing. In this collaboration, both companies will offer cloud-enabled NICE DCV and EnginFrame, an advanced commercial grid portal used in a variety of industries. The two will offer professional support and integrate with application software vendors, such as ANSYS, in the cloud.
NICE DCV will soon arrive to the UberCloud online marketplace to deliver efficient and optimized remote access for graphic-intensive, off-the-shelf 3D applications running on desktop environments in the cloud. The software integrates seamlessly with major CAD, CAE, Petro-technical, medical and scientific visualization software, and is encrypted based on enterprise level security standards. NICE DCV allows sharing of a physical GPU in the cloud between multiple sessions, while offering full graphic acceleration and high-end workstation-class performance. The comprehensive NICE EnginFrame Views session management portal integrates with all major HPC schedulers to distribute and manage remote 3D sessions while maintaining the utmost security. NICE DCV is certified for various ISVs and provides the highest compatibility, quality and performance of Remote 3D Visualization support for dozens of ISV products currently in the cloud. Based on the performance, scalability and reliable features of NICE DCV, graphic processing unit manufacturer NVIDIA has introduced NICE as a key Virtualization Solution Partner.
For companies that are curious on how to effectively implement and deploy the targeted Remote 3D and HPC to production operations, NICE offers consulting packages to help any customer move seamlessly into using NICE software solutions.
“Working with the UberCloud marketplace opens NICE to a new and exciting market and online sales channel fostering the presence in the cloud market with an amazingly simple shopping experience for our customers with a focus on the HPC-cloud,” said Dr. Karsten Gaier of Italian NICE Software at the ISC Cloud Conference. “Together with UberCloud, NICE offers cloud customers easy access to the NICE leading edge HPC-Cloud enabling solutions in the domain of Remote 3D Visualization and easy to use HPC management portals.”
NICE products will be introduced to the UberCloud marketplace later in 2014, together alongside several dozens of cloud-enabled products from other software vendors. According to UberCloud's CEO Burak Yenier, there are currently 15 software providers in UberCloud's development pipeline, with more than 60 service products for the marketplace.
“NICE was one of the first software companies which approached us to get on the UberCloud marketplace,” added Wolfgang Gentzsch, President of the UberCloud. “We are very pleased to jointly offer three different kinds of products on the UberCloud marketplace: reselling NICE DCV as is; bundling DCV for the cloud together with other ISV software like ANSYS; and packaging professional services for those who want it ready to go.”

The UberCloud started in 2012 with inviting the wider technical computing community of engineers and scientists and their service providers to participate in real-life hands-on experiments to move and run the end-users applications in the cloud. 155 of these experiments have been performed so far and the challenges carefully investigated. Based on this experience, the UberCloud online marketplace platform has been developed. Today, end-users and service providers have one common access point for technical computing in the cloud: the UberCloud information, community, experiment, and online marketplace to discover, try, and buy computing on demand.
