Citrix Eyes Growth Opportunity For Virtualizing 3D CAD Apps

Stocks in this article: CTXS

Citrix today announced new customer deployments of the market-leading Citrix XenDesktop® with HDX 3D Pro to deliver high-end 3D apps to designers, engineers and workers all along the product design chain. Citrix global customers, Knightec AB and Wiha Werkzeuge GmBH are using XenDesktop to securely, centrally-deliver CAD applications to dispersed design teams, with the stunning visual performance required for this type of intensive design and engineering work. Since the introduction of HDX 3D Pro graphics app acceleration technologies, Citrix has seen rapid customer adoption led by organizations across North America, Europe and Japan in heavy manufacturing, global engineering and energy sectors who have deployed XenDesktop to host and securely-deliver design and engineering applications from the datacenter.

“Supporting the CAD application market with our desktop and app virtualization solutions represents a significant growth opportunity for Citrix. Today, there are nearly 15 million CAD users 1 that design products and another 100 million users require access to design data to view and edit these designs, representing a significant new target user base for Citrix,” said Calvin Hsu, vice president of product marketing, Desktop and Apps at Citrix.

In today’s global business environment, design and manufacturing organizations require the ability to collaborate and manage design lifecycles effectively with offshore, mobile and remote employees across the globe. At the same time, they have to maintain tight security and control over valuable intellectual property as the workforce becomes more mobile and distributed. XenDesktop with HDX 3D Pro is the only solution that can support high-end designers, engineers and broad range of employees working with 3D data, while delivering real-time, remote collaboration. No other solution can offer the same performance, scale and graphics compatibility. Competing solutions are architected such that they cannot keep up with the latest versions of OpenGL, OpenCL, CUDA and DirectX, which limits customers to certain applications and legacy products. In addition, these solutions only offer one method of GPU sharing, which does not leverage the full performance of GPU virtualization designed by graphics market leader, NVIDIA. Professional graphics applications such as CAD, visualization and analysis rely on the parallel processing power of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) to visually render and manipulate large data models with pixel perfect quality.
