DCV compared to RGS

NICE DCV (Desktop Cloud Visualization) is a industry-standard software created by NICE/AWS for high-end performance remote desktop access to 2D and 3D desktops. It features benchmark proven high-end remote streaming performance combined with state-of-the-art encryption.

HP RGS is a software developed by HP that allows remote access to single-user desktops. It uses a proprietary protocol to compress and transmit the graphics data, which allows for smooth performance over low-bandwidth networks.

Here is an overview of advantages of NICE DCV vs. HP RGS:

DCV offers better performance than HP RGS as it consumes considerable less bandwidth. In addition, it shows much lower latencies also driven by hardware-acceleration integration options.

NICE DCV is used in a number of AWS (Amazon Web Services) services like WorkSpaces, AppStream 2.0 and Nimble Studio. AWS is pushing the leading DCV remote desktop performance to be the best on the market with a large team of skilled engineers.

NICE DCV offers very attractive pricing compared to other remote desktop products. Get in touch with us to find out!

On Windows servers DCV offers high-end remote desktops with very low bandwidth consumption compared to RGS including high interactivity.

On Linux DCV for 3D in addition to standard high-end remote desktops offers very efficient GPU-sharing supporting a number of full-performant concurrent 3D Desktops for different users on the same GPU. In addition, many 2D desktops are supported with DCV on the same Linux server which is a very common use case in some industries like EDA (Semiconductor Design).

DCV uses state-of-the-art encryption protocols, which are considered to be more secure than HP RGS’s encryption.
