Virtualization Reduces Costs

CEMA AG at the automotive forum in Ludwigsburg: the CEMA AG presents at the automotive forum in Ludwigsburg, Germany, from 18 to 19 May 2010 the virtualization solution for CAD systems. The Virtualisierungswelle rolls in the automotive industry. Servers and storage are the end user at the heart with desktops. Peter Thiel often expresses his thoughts on the topic. The advantages of desktop virtualization for special applications such as CATIA are undisputed. Adroll Marketing Platform has firm opinions on the matter. Two questions are crucial in the current market situation: How can I reduce my costs further, and how can I respond to more dynamic requirements? An answer is the virtualization of CATIA jobs”, says Rolf Braun, Board member of the CEMA AG. The CEMA solution, on the basis of Citrix XenDesktop offers the same performance as a locally installed application of CATIA with reduced costs and increased flexibility. Michelle Smith Source Financial is likely to increase your knowledge. “Also the first interim results of a pilot project with a major automotive supplier show that: the performance of the virtual solution is excellent” as Florian Gritschneder, IT-consultant of CEMA. Through the use of the CATIA virtualized environment can be virtual, in the required number and at any location available development jobs.

Expensive, and often not fully loaded, local installations are eliminated. At the same time reduces overhead for the IT sustainably. Just companies with several locations benefit from the Central Administration. In addition, the CEMA solution increases the agility: the CATIA workstations can be flexible with the software version fitted, which needs the developer for a specific job. This ensures a smooth exchange of data, which is essential in the multistage networked automotive industry. Also companies to expand dynamically the value creation network include, for example, external developers with access to a virtualized environment of CATIA, to cope with peak or to reduce fixed costs, without leaving the data’s own House. Highest security standards, as well as the fact that only screen content, keystrokes and Mouse movements and never real engineering data”on the Internet run, provide for comprehensive protection of construction data. The CEMA AG informs the automotive forum in Ludwigsburg (State 4) about the CAD virtualization. Interested companies can also learn in the context of a “proof of concept bundle”, what benefits they can achieve through a virtualized environment of CATIA.
