BOXX Technologies, the provider of high-performance workstations, rendering systems, and servers, has launched BOXX Cloud Services (BCS), a secure, high-performance, virtual private cloud workstation service powered by professionally overclocked BOXX workstations purpose-built for enterprise organizations’ CAD applications and workflows.
“We’re going beyond the limitations of traditional virtualized infrastructure which relies on server-based technology,” said Shoaib Mohammad, VP of BOXX Cloud Services. “Unlike Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) or cloud hosted solutions, which fail to address the high-performance needs of architects, engineers, product designers, and other CAD users, BCS provides custom, dedicated workstations inside a scalable data center environment. It also allows you to extend your data center with a pay-as-you-go model and without the complexities and upfront cost of building an onsite private cloud.”
Purpose-built for leading CAD applications where single-threaded application performance is as equally important as the number of CPU cores, BCS cloud-hosted desktops offer performance identical to that of a high-performance desk side workstation, allowing the most demanding users to create without compromise. Powered by dedicated NVIDIA Quadro RTX GPUs, BCS delivers state-of-the-art graphics performance and support for CUDA—a feature essential for modern workflows and one which many cloud-hosted desktops fail to support.
Leveraging Teradici PCoIP technology which securely delivers lossless, high-fidelity colour and high-resolution graphics, BCS provides an enhanced user experience extending beyond the remote graphics capabilities of competing cloud providers. Ensuring the best possible performance with a wide variety of peripherals found in CAD workflows, a BCS-hosted workstation is delivered to any notebook, desktop, thin client, zero client, or tablet, as if the desktop is actually in front of the user.
According to Ziad Lammam, Vice President of Product Management, Teradici, “In shifting to cloud-based virtual workstations, companies in this space can see significant benefit from working with a specialized service tailored to meet these requirements. BOXX Cloud Services with integrated Cloud Access Software from Teradici offers such companies a way to keep their teams online and their projects moving forward quickly and efficiently with the high level of performance, security and user experience they need.”
