Got GPU Envy? Get the Advantage with DaaS!

In every industry, whether healthcare, manufacturing, financial services and many others, we’re seeing accelerated adoption of cloud computing and Desktop-as a-Service (DaaS). Business decision makers are seeing less and less value in traditional IT skillsets that focus on keeping traditional IT machinery rolling. The reality is that with the rise of the public cloud, it makes little sense to keep all that infrastructure on-premises; most companies we talk to completely agree, and they are rejecting the complexity and cost of having on-premises datacenter infrastructure, physical desktops, and on-premises VDI in favor of the simplicity, reduced costs and agility of public cloud infrastructure and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), usually deployed on Microsoft Azure or Amazon Workspaces.

Beyond IT simplicity and cost reduction, DaaS contributes to business success in many other ways: Rapid deployment (time-to-value), secure remote access to apps and desktops from anywhere at any time, mobile productivity, improved data security, business continuity & disaster recovery, instant scalability and agility, and improved collaboration.

In a previous blog I wrote about DaaS being a game-changer for GPU-accelerated computing and its use cases. Today I want to focus in on how DaaS is modernizing the Architecture, Engineering, Construction (AEC) industry. AEC professionals need to visualize, simulate and analyze complex CAD data, and they need to work collaboratively with other people who may be scattered across physical locations. With this amount of data involved, high-powered computing with access to the latest GPUs is essential. But what’s the best way to make sure design engineers, architects, BIM managers and other AEC professionals get the compute power and performance they need anytime and anywhere?

Physical workstations – the weak link in the AEC chain
