Novatech were approached with the objective of virtualising the clients traditional, desktop-based training solution across a traditional one user, one machine model. The client currently runs a unique diagnostic and corrective training platform, based on a core 3D game simulation engine for aircraft.
The challenge for the system would create unique issues, as it was originally designed for physical hardware, not a virtual environment. Novatech sought to successfully develop a system that could run on an unfamiliar setting without capability flaws, whilst also having it run efficiently and cost-effectively.
Novatech architected the virtualisation with an advanced system topology. This allowed centralisation and remote delivery of application control and 3D processing for a graphically dependant training workload, with powerful, capable hardware. For example, utilising GPU?s with graphic cards that can be multiplied to fit usage, and intelligent thin clients working as output machines, will subsequently escalate the running capabilities of the simulation.
The flexibility of the improved VM-based virtualised solution has taken the simulation engine to the heights of reliable 3D processing; reduced costs on the life cycle management, and of maintenance and hardware. Disaster recovery capabilities have been advanced and the system now runs on a much smoother network than its cumbersome predecessor.
Some of the leading names in the Security, Aviation, Marine and Defence industries depend on Novatech for their technology requirements.
