Inspire Student Learning Through Cloud Computing

Workspot Delivers Virtual Desktops, Apps and GPU Workstations to Any Device


Education institutions are committed to providing a valuable learning experience for students, and modern IT solutions are the foundation for delivering that value. The demands placed on students and staff are significant – and stressful. The last thing they need to worry about is whether or not they can access the applications and data they need to complete a project. These technology natives have specific expectations for how technology should perform and the value it should add, and when it falls short, they are deeply dissatisfied. The ability to support secure, 24/7 access to learning resources, from any location and using either university- provided or any BYO device is fundamental for education institutions at the top of their game.


Physical desktops and workstations present significant challenges for IT teams. The CapEx and OpEx required to sustain them is unacceptably high, and they don’t effectively serve students and staff. As a result, many educational institutions have tried traditional, on-premises VDI only to be caught by surprise at the complexity and ever-rising OpEx that goes with it. Collectively, these solutions present serious challenges for these IT teams:

  • Virtual desktop and application implementations can take 6-9 months and require expensive IT specialists
  • Access to GPU-intensive apps is limited to physical workstations in labs which inhibits creativity and access
  • Legacy VDI solutions have multiple management consoles to manage different applications and workloads
  • High CapEx, rising OpEx and overall high TCO are at odds with increasingly constrained budgets
  • Difficult and limited scalability to dynamically accommodate peaks in demand
  • Constant hardware upgrades and refresh cycles are time-consuming and expensive


Cloud computing is a paradigm shift for IT. Done right, it can simplify solution architectures and deliver value at a fraction of the cost and time of legacy VDI solutions.

Workspot cloud desktops, workstations, and virtual application on Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud enable IT to deploy a modern, multi-cloud solution that is cost-effective, secure, highly available, as well as easy to deploy, manage and scale. Workspot provides students and staff with seamless and secure access to virtual desktops, high-performance GPU-enabled workstations, apps and data from a centralized location in the cloud, using any device.
