Engineering — Energy | Desktop Virtualization Planning
Aibel uses SysTrack analytics to right-size, plan major desktop virtualization project
Aibel — a leading supplier of engineering services related to oil, gas, and renewable energy — was already a major proponent of virtualization, with more than 4,500 users already deployed on virtual desktops. The challenge, however, was to try and virtualize more than 1,500 CAD/CAM workstations that produced graphics-intensive modelling of 3D designs.
The project required knowing three key things:
- What graphics applications are in use?
- Who is using which applications and which workstations?
- What GPU processor power is being consumed by application, user, and workstation?
To answer those questions, Aibel turned to Lakeside Software’s Systrack.
