I'm currently assessing whether to purchase Intel Vtune or Parallel Studio. While Parallel Studio has some interesting additions (Inspector and Advisor) at this point these products do not really fit our needs, specifically that it does not seem to be possible to run a target application remotely (e.g. through SSH). This is a killer feature for us in Vtune.
I'm curious whether it is possible in the future to upgrade/convert an Intel Vtune license to Parallel Studio PE, I was not able to find any information about this online, apologies if I missed it.
