1 Intercloud Brokerage. A customer case for on-demand 3D CAD/CAM Workspaces...

2 Customer case. On-demand 3D CAD/CAM Workspaces. Introduction. The IT department of a leading European company in the Consulting & Engineering industry, provides 3D CAD/CAM Workspace solutions for engineers working on multiple projects with applications from vendors like Autodesk and Bentley. These applications are made available, on-demand at any project location. These on-demand 3D CAD/CAM Workspaces resulted into a significant reduction of cost, faster and better results and improved a collaborative -and efficient way of working. Bring powerful applications in a highly flexible way to your users. Enabling collaboration of multi-disciplinary project teams, across locations. Today s distributed workforces need to work flexible and remotely from any place and device. As the IT department, you want to deliver these services in a secure, controlled and a compliant manner, together with a highly efficient user experience. However, managing all desktops is comprehensive and expensive and adding flexibility will increase complexity thus cost. This complexity rises when specific task workers are involved. Engineers working from multiple locations on multiple projects with BIM applications; calculating and creating 2Dand 3D images based on actual data points and models. To run this type of software, specialized and expensive workstations are required. When working with multi-disciplinary project teams across multiple locations, achieving synergy and an optimized usage of these stations cannot be realised. As an European company, they adopted the cloud and provide 3D CAD/CAM workspaces for their engineers working on multiple projects in Europe. With these on-demand and specialised workspaces, they bring the necessary powerful applications, such as Autodesk Revit 2015, and Bentley AutoPLANT, in a highly flexible way to its users. Accessible from from multiple locations. Anytime and anywhere accessible...

3 How does it work? This company realised the 3D CAD/CAM Workspaces to allow business users to easily use the online workspace with its centralized data on any location in Europe, at any time. It improved the level of collaboration in this project by sharing fileservers, avoiding local versions and releases, and by providing flexibility to the project team. Our business users like to work flexible, and remotely from any place and device, while we want to deliver these services in a secure, controlled and a compliant way. Any user can login on his PC or laptop, using the client on his or her desktop. With this client, the user has access to his 3D CAD/CAM Workspace. The online workspace is based on a secure and flexible cloud infrastructure with contains the necessary calculation and graphical power and combines this with the specific application. The 3D CAD/CAM Workspaces allows to be easily scaled up or down during projects providing the business as many desktops as required.. The enterprise IT department defined the workspace service using standardized configurations and IaaS related components [compute, storage, network], including pre-installed and configured templates from the Greenclouds platform. Licenses for OS and application software has been covered by the company. For the 3D CAD/CAM Workspace, this company used a number of templates, including templates for the connection server, fileserver and virtualized desktops: -> Connection Server: Windows 2008 R2 with VMware Horizon View client. -> Fileserver: Windows 2008 R2 with 5-10 TB Tier1vStorage. -> Desktop template [application based]: Window 7 Enterprise 64bit with the specific application using a specific number of vcpu, GB vram and vstorage, and GPU for graphical performance. The services are deployed in certified datacenters across Europe. These qualified resources are capable to provide GPU related pools for high graphical performance. With 3D CAM/CAM Workspaces, Greenclouds offers a secure and flexible cloud infrastructure, which contains the necessary calculation -and graphical power and combines this with the best of breed virtualisation software [VMware and Citrix]. Together with your specific application, you can easily build and manage custom cloud services to your organization and bring powerful applications in a highly flexible way to your users.
