NICE DCV version 2021.3 introduces multiple new features such as DCV Connection Gateway and a refreshed DCV Web Client user interface. NICE DCV is a high-performance remote display protocol that helps customers securely access remote desktop or application sessions, including 3D graphics applications hosted on servers with high-performance GPUs.

NICE DCV version 2021.3 contains the following features and improvements:

  • DCV Connection Gateway - The DCV Connection Gateway is an optional component that enables customers to securely access their DCV sessions through a single IP/hostname, without exposing the entire fleet of DCV servers to the public internet. The DCV Connection Gateway is available at no additional cost to customers and supports both WebSocket (TCP) and QUIC (UDP) connection methods.
  • Web client user interface updates - The new web client user interface introduces a redesigned DCV menu bar with new icons, improved notification messaging, and fixes for many usability paper-cuts that affected user experience.
  • Support for new Amazon EC2 graphics-optimized instances - NICE DCV now supports Amazon EC2 G5 and G5g instances. G5 instances are the latest generation of NVIDIA GPU-based instances and deliver up to 3x better performance for graphics-intensive applications compared to G4dn instances. G5g instances are powered by AWS Graviton2 processors, and are designed to provide the best price performance in Amazon EC2 for graphics workloads such as Android game streaming.
  • Support for Windows 11 and Windows Server 2022 - Customers can now use NICE DCV Windows native client on Windows 11 and NICE DCV server software on Windows Server 2022.

NICE DCV is the remote display protocol used by Amazon Appstream 2.0, AWS RoboMaker, and Amazon Nimble Studios. For more information, please see the NICE DCV 2021.3 release notes or visit the NICE DCV webpage to download and get started with DCV.
