Time to market is everything, and IT teams in manufacturing firms make critical technology decisions that can make or break a competitive edge. Traditional, on-premises virtual desktops have long been in use on the factory floor and in back offices, and while these solutions have delivered data security benefits and reduced the need for hardware refreshes, it turns out that the trade-off for IT is increased desktop management complexity, reliability issues, and the ever-growing OpEx that goes along with these challenges. Worse, these solutions have never really been an option for end users who require GPU horse power. What are the top 3 requirements for any power user? Performance. Performance. Performance.
There is plenty of skepticism about virtual desktops, especially when it comes to high-performance computing use cases, but Workspot’s innovative Enterprise Desktop Cloud™ platform addresses these concerns so every organization can finally realize the powerful performance, security, simplicity and agility benefits of cloud desktops and workstations.
Now, Siemens NX, a popular CAD/CAM/CAE application, runs in Microsoft Azure and is delivered to power users via a Workspot cloud workstation. This way, people can can work from a company office, home office, or remote work location with secure and uninterrupted access to the software and company’s engineering data. NX is built on a flexible and extensible architecture, and NX on Microsoft Azure gives you flexibility in using your CAD tools in today’s ever-changing environment.When the team at Siemens installed NX on a Workspot cloud workstation, they shared with us that “The NX install went flawlessly; it was a simple as it could get, and everything just works.”
