The Performance Engineering team has been doing a lot of testing on Pro in virtualized environments. This includes performance and scalability in Microsoft Hyper-V VDI and Citrix XenDesktop . Members of the team will be at the User Conference and look forward to talking about using ArcGIS Desktop and Server, especially Pro in virtualized environments. There will be a Tech Session and a SIG specifically on virtualization.
There will be a Virtualization Special Interest Group (SIG) on Wednesday 12:00pm-1:00pm Room 29A. This meeting will be interactive. We would like to learn which virtualization environments you work in, the requirements needed to host Pro and other ArcGIS products in you environment, performance issues related to virtualized environments, and other challenges. This will help us target our testing and certification efforts, deliver meaningful information to you and deliver better products. Also at this SIG will be a couple of individuals we have worked closely with from NVIDIA and Microsoft. They will be able to answer technical and road ahead questions.
There will be an ArcGIS in Virtualized Environments tech session on Thursday 3:15pm – 4:30pm Room 17A. We will discuss our testing results, configurations, tests, and other related topics during that session. This will include alot of information on test results of ArcMap and Pro in Citrix XenDesktop and Hyper-V VDI using the NVIDIA K1 card which is specially designed for virtualized environments.
