I tried it. Smiley Wink

Both from my home (Medium speed network - ADSL) and from my Office (High speed network)

From my home the performances are not optimal... From my office performances are far far better.

Performances = Graphic Performances

 

What is surprising me are the calculation performances that seems to be better than my I7 intel PC.

Hello,

 

What information are you looking for? We at TechMktgare using NX11 demos on Appstream and also planning to install Rulestream for testing. All seems to be working fine.

Hi @AMIT-KUMAR,

I'm looking for cost, infrastructure necessary and so on.

We have 30 NX 11.02 seats in 4 different location, 3 in Italy and one in China.

Where file are stored ?

Server license ?

NX customizations.

NX updates ?

Thank you...

Fascinating. All those years running Thames peer-to-peer hardware encryptors and an array of cisco packet level firewalls on our enterprise 'owned' architecture... was recently audited and labelled 'unsafe' lol

Can't imagine what it would be if we'd upload intel-property or any cad/cam/cae data onto 3rd party servers, I'd lose my job in a finger snap. And possibly wouldn't be able to find a decent job elsewhere ever for the rest of my 6 other lives!

Cloud based, with encrypted pixel BS? Please be half serious if you want to keep those 30 seats

My 2c.

Unless of course you specialise in rubber toy mold making then... that's another story. AWS, Azure of GC among their millions of hidden net backdoors and rootkits are sufficient to run NX remotely Smiley Wink

There are plenty of different usage and needs in the engineering world.

No one is telling you that you MUST adopt a Cloud-CAD system... NX is not OnShape.

Probably your company will remain on his higly secured owned CAD platform for a long time, but this is not a valid reason to blame a technology.

There are many companies that are looking for a Cloud solution for his engineering activities, probably because engineering it's not the core of their business.

This is being reposted from another thread on this subject, where I commented on a short experiment that I tried:

 

I just tried the free-trial version of NX 11.0 using the Amazon AppStream 2.0 tools and it worked great and I'm running this using Firefox on my Apple MacBook laptop.  I didn't try too much but the display looked great, response was extremely fast (I have a 100mb connection to the Internet via a cable modem), and mouse dynamics worked fine (I tried using a Spaceball but it only recognized it as a mouse with no 3D behavior) but my normal Three-button mouse, with scroll-wheel, worked just fine and as expected.

 

Anyway, this was just a test as I no longer have access to a real license of NX since I retired.

John, You don't have an NX license?

The company didn't gave a perpetual license to one of the gretest UG evangelist in the world?
