Challenges with Physical Workstations
Companies purchase expensive liquid cooled workstations for 3D graphics workloads like CATIA, AutoCAD, Revit, Ansys, and others. Not only are these expensive resources outdated right away, there are many other issues:
(1) Cross-site collaboration: In order for teams in multiple sites to collaborate IT needs to either invest in solutions to sync expensive TB sized files between sites, or in WAN acceleration technology. Often the end users in remote sites have a poor experience.
(2) Slowdowns in global software development and testing cycles result from slow distributions of build, fewer testing cycles, and teams working in silos because they cannot share builds.
