RTX Virtual Workstation

Scan Cloud can deploy vWS licenses and hardware to deliver high performance graphics and video applications to any device, anywhere

Private Cloud Solutions - by Scan Cloud and NVIDIA

NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) is a virtualisation solution that delivers high performance graphics and video applications virtually, in a user experience that’s nearly indistinguishable from a physical workstation. vWS is deployed as a private cloud infrastructure with RTX graphics capability delivered from centralised server hardware, rather than individual desktop workstations. The vWS solution includes comprehensive management and monitoring capabilities, so can scale and make the best use of your hardware resources.

As an NVIDIA Preferred Virtualisation partner, the Scan Cloud team is able to advise on all aspects of vWS including licences, the hardware required to deliver the platform as part of a fully deployed solution - specifically tailored for your number of users.

With vWS powering your virtual desktop environment, you enable the industry-leading capabilities of GPU-acceleration on every device in your organisation - enabling secure, work from anywhere capability while delivering a high performance experience allowing you to run complex, real-time simulations and speed the rendering time of photorealistic images. vWS, powered by 3XS Cloud, also addresses these common physical workstation challenges:

  • Risk of mission-critical data or intellectual property left unsecured on a workstation’s local storage media
  • Interrupted workflows associated with network latency and lengthy cycle times for remote file access and editing
  • Constrained productivity resulting from limited access to data and designs from offsite or offshore locations
  • Limited ability to support an agile, project-based workforce of creative and technical professionals with the applications, data, and computer resources they need

Wide Range of Application Support

A whole host of industry sectors can increase their productivity by deploying vWS within their organisation, supported via a vast range of certified applications.

Features of vWS

The exact server specification required to deliver vWS will depend on the application(s) being deployed and to how many users. NVIDIA produces a sizing guide for the most popular graphics applications, advising on server system specs driven by light, medium or heavy use. This will hinge primarily on the GPU required, although other system considerations will be highlighted too. An example for Dassault Systèmes CATIA is shown below:

Ways to buy and deploy NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation

NVIDIA vWS is licensed per user and it is possible to co-terminate new and existing licences - meaning that you reduce licensing admin by synchronising the renewal dates in line with latest purchases.

We can provide a full deployment of hardware and software, fully configured to deploy your own private cloud servers.
