I have seen some posts on this but they are over a year old so I will ask the question again
Is there support for Open Roads designer in a virtualized environment like Citrix - I thought MicroStation Connect is supported in Citrix (maybe I read that wrong)
Has anyone tried using ORD in Citrix and what issues have you seen?
After some research I found that we don’t officially support ORD in a Citrix environment.
One of the reasons is that given the higher volume of dynamic rendering taking place, the performance of ORD would be affected considerably due to the way Citrix process pixels.
I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
But I find it hard to believe that pixel processing would be an issue since we are using high end gaming graphics cards on our servers that are far better than anything we have on our PC's
Is Bentley looking at supporting their products in Citrix? - we are still testing here but have not really found anything yet - but we are again just starting out in ORD as well.
The main reason for the Citrix push is it makes deploying the software much easier then working with each individual PC for our IT staff
PowerGEOPAK SS10 and ORD
As far I’m aware there is no plan to support it in the near future. Our planning for the software is usually dictated by our user’s needs. The more people requesting a functionally the more focus development put to deliver it.
I would suggest you create a new item in the Ideas section requesting the support for Citrix and listing your reasons. That way users can vote on that idea and the more votes the idea has the more chances are that Product management will take that idea to action. Forums are also important to raise awareness about ideas.
I hope this help you in the long term.
Thanks again Antonio
We are beginning to deploy ORD in our citrix environment so I am following this thread. So far in minimal testing there have been no issues but it has been limited to development cycles only, no real production as of yet.
I will also go to the Ideas section and push for it there.
