White Paper: Understanding Cloud-Based Visual System Architectures
This paper explores the technical challenges and functional ramifications of distributing visual system components across the cloud compared to on-premises resources.
The Government’s “Cloud First” policy of 2011 set an accelerated course of government technology migration to cloud resources. The benefits of cloud services and infrastructure are appealing for use in simulation and training for many reasons, including the ability to provide point-of-need (PoN) simulation, freedom from hardware maintenance and upgrades, reduction of capital expenditure and hardware footprint, and practically limitless resources that allow ease of scalability.
While attractive in concept, serious limitations in training quality and effectiveness can exist depending on the implementation strategy of a cloud-based visual system.
