Challenges with Physical Workstations
Whether users (designers, engineers, creative professionals etc.) are working on 2D/3D models, collaborating with the BIM partners, editing a video or visualizing seismic data in real-time, they all require large amounts of processing power as they work with resource-hungry graphics applications such as Petrel, CATIA, AutoCAD, Revit, Ansys, SOLIDWORKS, and Adobe Premiere.
Users are tied to their workstations with data stored locally. There is no remote access to the workstation or data. These physical deployments are difficult to scale, hinder collaboration and the high upfront CapEx requirements make the solutions inflexible.
