Powerful 3D capabilities: Free creative minds from the old workstation


Remove designer and engineer frustrations by giving them access to 3D applications and the power they need to succeed, on all the devices they work most effectively. No matter where in the world they are.

Release your specialists from the old-fashioned workstation, divide the cost of expensive 3D graphics among several users, and save money on the hardware required to perform specialized drawings.

You can achieve all of this with 3D Cloud Desktop as a Service, a revolutionary way of delivering end-user IT solutions - also when your use cases require more advanced applications than just Outlook and Office-documents.


Boost user flexibility

When your specialists can initiate their tasks on an ordinary laptop, revise a drawing on a tablet and collaborate on the final details on a smartphone, you're making them more effective. You minimize the time spent limited by tools and give them the ability to spend more time on creating new, valuable projects.

- By untying 3D performance from a specific, physical computer, you're giving specialists the ability to work on the train or at a building-site, right next to a customer. And they can use whatever device is most practical at that exact moment. It'll make the experience better for the customer who needs your help, as well as for the designer, who can work on the project in real-time. No more having to collect notes, and bringing them home to the office, explains Senior Solution Architect at Itadel, Søren Reinertsen.


Stretch your budgets further

3D Cloud Desktop delivers applications and 3D capabilities from a data center, rather than from a specific graphics-card in a users computer. As a result, there are massive gains to be found by optimizing hardware and software. You'll be able to standardize employee computers throughout your company, eliminiating specific user-demands. It'll also allow you to centralize control of software and licenses.

- Because users are working with files directly in the cloud , and not on a local computer, there's no more need for moving and exporting large files back and forth. And when it's time to render a large project-drawing you also see the benefits. A normal workstation can be occupied for hours rendering, leaving your specialists unable to work. But on Cloud Desktop a specialist can let the data center render the drawing, open another project and keep working. It'll limit wasted time and boost efficiency, says Søren Reinertsen.

An added bonus is the ease of solving technical issues. Instead of having to exchange specialized hardware in case of troubles, Cloud Desktop lets a user have a new virtual desktop delivered in a few minutes, including access to all the necessary files and tools. And that goes for all the users' devices.


Protect intellectual property and sensitive data

When your 3D applications are delivered from Cloud Desktop, your projects, files, and data are collected and placed in one place. This will ease collaboration as well as backup. Because files move from local computers and smartphones, that can be stolen or forgotten at an airport, and into the data center, it also ups the protection of your sensitive and proprietary data.

- First of all, 3D Cloud Desktop ensures that all users are working in the same versions of the software you depend on. That alone makes everything easier. But the added control of integrations to PLM and similar systems will also help users keep track of versions and catalog their work. Cloud Desktop is set up to save all files in the data center, so no files are forgotten. This way you'll also be able to manage access to your data, not allowing sensitive drawings and projects to leave the data center before they are ready to be delivered to a customer, Søren Reinertsen from Itadel explains.
