What is a Cloud Workstation?
The Workspot Enterprise Desktop Cloud™ platform is a 100% cloud-native SaaS solution for delivering high-performance cloud desktops and workstations from the public cloud to power users anywhere. The solution maximizes productivity for power users while lowering cost and complexity for IT and the business.
Workspot cloud workstations leverage cloud GPU instances, enabling customers to run resource-hungry graphics applications such as Revit, Petrel, AutoCAD, Siemens NX, PTC Creo, Ansys, SOLIDWORKS, ArcGIS, Adobe Premiere and more.
Our cloud VDI supercharges your business agility and competitiveness, saves on upfront CapEx and relieves IT teams from cumbersome hardware refreshes. For distributed teams, IT no longer needs to procure, set up and ship physical devices to end users. Instead, cloud workstation provisioning happens in minutes, so you can onboard people immediately and they can use their device of choice.
