In this modern world of innovation, the Development industry is still striving to reach the level of performance and security they need while working remotely. They face major challenges when it comes to delivering complex functionality at a faster pace— all while reducing the time invested in setting up IT.
At the same time, they also struggle with budget constraints associated with moving their coding activities to the cloud. Here, Virtualization comes as a savior with a comprehensive set of tools that has the potential to compel efficiency for developers.
However, power users – developers and designers who work on 3D, OpenGL, DirectX, or other graphics visualization applications- are unable to leverage the benefits of this flexible solution. The reason is that GPU applications are processor intensive, which requires high monitors to deliver a decent experience.
The Developer Experience Matters
With the footsteps of the industry-defined client journey mapping, the market is now starting to explore how better the developer experience can get. Enterprises are now focusing on making the interface more user-friendly and powerful in order to leverage the same benefits in their client journey.
Better developer experiences indicate that developers get less affected by their IT environment and thus can invest time in core development tasks. At the same time, more powerful and developer-friendly desktops allow for innovative solutions.
While looking for a way to mitigate these problems, they came across cloud virtual desktop infrastructure. ACE’s virtual desktop solutions are underway to expand the benefits for developers by offering a majority of heavy designers’ applications on managed infrastructure to the users.
The development team needs access to various power applications, including CAD/CAM/CAE applications that require a proper configuration that is non-limited to issues, from coding to production. In this fast-paced, innovative environment, developers surely need time to create and test their solutions. Therefore, they need to automate processes that take up their time and delay coding.
Undoubtedly, Virtual desktop infrastructure offers a robust solution to businesses, enabling developers to code from anywhere, anytime. However, the on-premise VDI deployment still takes time, and configurations have to be manually set by your IT team. Many developers and info-tech teams raise the issue that lengthy deployment time is a major reason for quality problems, resulting in testing or production client issues. Developers need to debug such issues; thus, their time goes in vain while managing it.
A critical part of code creation and testing is utilizing production data, and building and keeping these databases can be favorably time-intensive tasks, and unsynced data leads to poor quality, again influencing developers.
Overcoming Developers’ Challenges with ACE-Managed Virtual Desktops
ACE-managed desktops reinforce ISV certifications for consistent user experience on graphics visualization applications. The virtual desktops are designed in such a way they include HDX, and 3D Pro capabilities, thus delivering desktops and applications that function best by utilizing a graphics processing unit (GPU).
HDX ensures that the user gets HD voice and video that allows users to collaborate with high-definition images even when the user is working with low mobile networks with packet loss, congestion, high latency, and jitters.
For a developer, virtual machine density matters the most. IT leaders demand state-of-the-art reliability and hardware-improved protection that efficiently encrypts data and enables blocking malicious exploits while maintaining workload value and implementation.
ACE virtual desktops use 2nd generation scalable processors to deliver advanced security. Developers and designers can work in a hardware-enhanced environment while data is encrypted from malicious exploits.
Additionally, it leverages Optane technology that bridges the optimization, storage, and transfer of larger, more complex data sets. This technology fills essential storage and memory hierarchy loopholes to deliver persistent memory, fast caching, and storage. Using Optane technology to configure your virtual desktops eliminates possible memory blockages with large VMs or even more users.
