GPU-accelerated virtual workstations for professional graphics applications

Cloud Workstations for Pro Graphics

3XS Systems graphics workstations are the gold standard when it comes to Pro Graphics applications. Powered by professional-grade NVIDIA RTX GPU accelerators, all the capabilities of our award-winning 3XS workstations are now available in the cloud from any device, anywhere. The Cloud Workstation service powered by Scan Cloud, enables any organisation to take advantage of highly responsive GPU-accelerated compute without the need to invest in on-premise hardware and its associated maintenance. Available in rental increments as small as one month, Cloud Workstations can be used as little or as often as needed.

GPU-accelerated

NVIDIA RTX GPUs lie at the heart of our cloud service, delivering cutting edge performance and features for professional graphics workloads.

Scalable

As your business needs develop additional Cloud Workstations can be quickly spun up and additional storage brought online.

Flexible

3XS Cloud Workstations are available in a wide range of configurations, tuned for the different users and workloads in your organisation.

Cost-effective

Available in monthly commitments paid for from OPEX, there is no upfront outlay from CAPEX or ongoing maintenance costs associated with on-premise hardware.

Secure

3XS Cloud Workstations are hosted in secure datacentre environments so the cloud experience will not compromise the integrity of your data.

Trusted

As an NVIDIA partner, Scan provides guidance throughout your cloud service - from a free guided proof of concept to personalised workstation configurations.

Optimised for Pro Graphics applications

We understand how important it is to tune workstations for specific workloads and applications. The 3XS Cloud Workstation range includes multiple profiles, specifically designed for the most popular workloads. As 3XS Cloud Workstations support any standard Windows-based DCC application, our specialists can create a custom profile for you if required.

 

AEC & BIM

Architecture Engineering and Construction software applications enable the creation of accurate 3D models to help visualise buildings and construction projects prior to their development. Building Information Modelling applications take this process a step further with the ability to then analyse these models within their environments, to enable better planning and lifecycle management.

 

CAD & CAE

Computer Aided Design applications enable the creation of accurate 2D and 3D models to help visualise objects and scenarios prior to development and manufacturing. Computer Aided Engineering applications take this process a step further with the ability to then analyse these models - in short, CAD is the process of designing a product and CAE is when you simulate and test it.

 

Media & Entertainment

The M&E industry is one that continues to grow exponentially with more advanced Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) being used in almost all TV and films to some extent, and the development of ever larger and more complex computer games.

 

Rendering

Rendering is one of the most important functions when it comes to processing advanced graphical media. Rendering makes use of a scene file consisting of multiple 3D or 3D models, which contains all relevant information in a predefined format such as the geometry, texture, viewpoint, and lightning descriptions, to name a few. The scene file is submitted to the rendering software for processing, and the final result is a digital image file.

Popular Applications

Accelerated by NVIDIA RTX GPUs

The most powerful professional visualisation and compute GPUs are the NVIDIA RTX series. RTX GPUs, delivered virtually by 3XS Cloud Workstations bring a host of features to the professional user enabling far greater creativity, control and capability.

Real-Time Ray Tracing

RTX GPUs realise the dream of real-time cinematic-quality rendering through optimised ray-tracing APIs such as Microsoft DXR - providing the ability to render photorealistic objects and environments in real time with perfectly accurate shadows, reflections, and refractions.

AI Enhanced

RTX GPUs add powerful AI-enhanced capabilities into visual applications. This dramatically accelerates creativity by freeing up time and resources through intelligent manipulation of images, automation of repetitive tasks, and optimisation of compute-intensive processes.

Features of Scan Cloud

Each Cloud Workstation instance is provided with at least 500GB of high performance SSD storage for the operating system and applications. Storage of project data, such as models, textures and video is provided via dedicated cloud storage nodes that can be accessed by the Cloud Workstations in your account. Our application specialists will work with you to identify the optimum capacity for this shared storage, which can be easily scaled as your needs develop.

New Cloud Workstations can be spun up rapidly, with a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro ready to go. All you need to do is install and license your applications and you can start work right away.

When working on complex projects or simulations, it is often the way that large teams of diversely skilled teams are required to complete them. This creates challenges as to the location of these talented individuals and the systems and applications they use. NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise addresses all of these challenges, providing a single platform where incompatibles are a thing of the past, real-time collaboration is straight forward and location is no longer relevant.

Put simply Omniverse Enterprise is a software platform that provides content creators, engineers and scientists with a common digital environment for working together on projects. We provide a free proof of concept trial for Omniverse Enterprise. Speak to us today to find out how your 3XS Cloud Workstations can be enhanced with Omniverse Enterprise.
