One of the most cost-prohibitive parts of running an architecture or engineering firm is the technology required to do your work. AutoCAD, Revit, and other modeling software are extremely resource-intensive, and so, you can’t get away with having your staff just bring in their laptop from home.
That’s why, for years, operating a firm like yours called for capital investment in technology amounting to thousands of dollars per architect or engineer that you had on staff – but today? There’s a more cost-effective way to go about it.
Virtual desktops are not a new concept, but the architecture and engineering industries are still catching up to the benefits of using them. The virtual desktop virtualizes what’s on your computer. When you use a virtual desktop, all of your icons, wallpaper, folders, toolbars, etc. are stored remotely on a server rather than on your computing device.
While for many industries, the main benefit of virtualization is the increased access to data, for a firm like yours, the key here is that you can drastically cut the costs of running your firm when you compare the cost of virtualization with the cost of buying workstations outright. Depending on the workstation in question, you stand to save thousands of dollars for every architect or engineer on your staff.
Essentially, NVIDIA GRID allows you to outsource the computing resources your firm relies on to run robust modeling software like AutoCAD and Revit. The computing power you need is accessed on BlueHat Cyber’s servers, which we manage to make sure they’re up to date, secure, and operating properly.
Beyond the cost savings, using NVIDIA GRID provides a range of additional benefits for your firm:
The bottom line is that working with NVIDIA and BlueHat Cyber is more cost-effective, secure, and efficient than your current on-premise set-up.
