“Enterprises have demanding requirements for workspaces in the cloud-first, mobile-first world,” said Scott Manchester, group program manager, Microsoft. “Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop is the comprehensive, flexible solution for their needs, and provides a secure platform that our partners can extend to serve specific use cases. Workspot’s Microsoft Azure-only, cloud PC service, together with Windows Virtual Desktop solution on Azure, offers enterprises the latest, next-generation technology platform to harness the power and global footprint of Azure.”
Available today in all 54+ Azure regions, Workspot solves complex use cases that have previously inhibited business productivity in a way that brings new opportunities for business growth to enterprise organizations.
For Workspot customer Dudek, a design/build firm innovating their design process through the use of unmanned aerial systems, a major productivity breakthrough occurred by using Workspot Workstation Cloud on Azure to process data captured with drones.
“Workspot on Microsoft Azure dramatically decreased our time to get deliverables into the hands of our clients, giving us a competitive advantage,” said Brian Nordmann, CIO, Dudek.
Israel Sumano, senior director of infrastructure services at Southland Industries, said, “After a year of testing and fine-tuning, we determined that using Workspot Workstation Cloud to deliver workstations from Azure—powered by NVIDIA GPU accelerators—made good business sense. Now, engineers can collaborate with colleagues almost anywhere, and we don’t incur the cost to replicate terabytes of data across their locations.”

Major productivity gains can also be realized when enterprises have the ability to activate Microsoft Windows 10 cloud PCs for contract workers on-demand – in minutes – as business dynamics change. This is uniquely achieved through Workspot’s globally distributed architecture.
Jimmy Chang, chief product officer at Workspot, said, “Whether it’s GPU cloud workstations slashing the time it takes to render 2D/3D building models, activating standby cloud PCs with a single click during a disaster, or accommodating variable demand for contract workers, enterprises choose Workspot and Microsoft to address their most difficult use cases and solve the most intractable productivity problems quickly.”
