C&S needed to open several branch offices around the U.S. quickly, without incurring the cost of implementing a full stack of servers, routers and switches in each location. Included in their requirements was making sure that CAD designers using graphics-intensive apps have outstanding performance. After experiencing the performance limitations and infrastructure complexity of traditional VDI and physical workstations, the C&S IT team decided to evaluate Workspot.
Eric Quinn, chief technology officer, C&S Companies, said: “We design and build major infrastructure projects across the country, and that takes a level of nimbleness that our previous virtual desktop system wasn’t providing. Workspot delivers on-demand, high-performance GPU workstations in the Azure region closest to the designers, and as a complete service. It’s the only way to deliver the kind of user experience that keeps our CAD engineers and my IT team happy and productive. The firm is now more agile than ever, allowing us to collaborate more effectively across project teams, no matter where they are located.”
Workspot Workstation Cloud in Microsoft Azure provides a turnkey, planet-scale desktop service, freeing C&S to pursue its growth goals. Benefits of the new workstations include:
- Improved performance: Power users experience performance that is as good as or better than local workstations.
- Expanded reach: New levels of agility enable pursuit of revenue opportunities in any geography.
- New possibilities: Joint venture partners improve collaboration and accelerate project delivery via a single technology platform.
- Greater agility: Disaster recovery is vastly improved with work-anywhere capability.
Jimmy Chang, chief product officer, Workspot, said: “For firms like C&S that use graphics-intensive applications, poor performance and high latency networks are productivity killers. Workspot has created a planet-scale DaaS solution. It’s an on-demand, cloud-native service, based on a globally distributed architecture, which allows IT to securely deliver cloud PCs and GPU cloud workstations from Azure regions around the world to any device, anywhere. For AEC firms like C&S, that capability is transformative.”
