High-Performance Cloud Workstations

Workspot offers a turnkey solution for high-performance workloads that ensures maximum productivity for power users while lowering cost and complexity for IT and the business.

  • Blazing Fast Performance: Leverage Azure’s global regions to easily provision high performance cloud workstations  for all your CAD applications. Co-location of data with compute power, in Azure, ensures that users experience fast file read/write times and fluid 3D CAD model creation. There is no data corruption or loss, even if your connection to the cloud workstation is interrupted.
  • Robust Security: Workspot cloud desktops are not susceptible to theft, loss, malware or user error. There is no data on any edge device and our cloud-native architecture features encryption for data in motion and at rest. IT has 100% control over the deployment including a global view of all user activity, conditional access provisioning and geo-fencing.

The Workstation Cloud leverages the Azure N-Series instances, which are powered by NVIDIA GPUs, enabling customers to run popular, resource-hungry graphics applications such as Revit, Petrel, AutoCAD, PTC Creo, Ansys, SOLIDWORKS, ArcGIS and Adobe Premiere.
