  2. 2. © 2018 Penguin Computing - Confidential Challenges of Command-Line Only HPC Users 2 ▪ Can't use GUI applications. Slows work for some. Prevents work for others! ▪ Can't get graphical output at all without file downloads. Images and video files can be very large! ▪ Downloading copies creates data fidelity / security problems. End-users don't want to worry about data duplication!
  3. 3. © 2018 Penguin Computing - Confidential Solution: Introduce Remote Desktop 3 ▪ End users: Get access to graphics based workflows (GUIs, images, videos, 3D models, MS Windows) Save time learning command line tools Save time downloading and managing copies Scale jobs when hardware and software is centralized ▪ System administrators: Save time by keeping data in the data center Save costs by centralizing hardware and software Optimize support by directly accessing customer VMs, bare- metal workstations, or HPC cloud environments
