ebb3 has launched the High Performance Virtual Computer (HPVC) in partnership with NEC, Cisco, NVIDIA, NetApp, APC, Microsoft and Citrix. This HPVC offers a cloud-based platform for 3D software, enabling multiple users to collaborate remotely.
It reduces power consumption and time pressure to update software, and while physical workstations allow a single user to utilize 3D graphical applications, the HPVC provides software access for up to 50 users at any one time, from any location.
Flexibility is in high demand. With the increase in productivity that working remotely provides, flexible working has been a significant factor for businesses seeking a Virtual Desktop Interface, with 48% of firms citing potential for mobile and remote working as the main factor behind their adoption of a virtualized solution.
“Before now, engineers using 3D graphical software like Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk AutoCAD and Bentley MicroStation were confined to a workstation in a fixed location,” said Andy Bowker, executive founder of ebb3. “We designed the HPVC to push new boundaries, making it possible to deliver 3D graphics to 4K screens, and to give access to 3D graphical applications smoothly and seamlessly, wherever there’s an internet connection. With the HPVC, engineers can show prospective clients 3D wireframe models on an iPad instead of a printout, or collaborate on a project while one partner is in London and one is at a conference in Las Vegas, without the lag or performance issues of physical workstations or legacy virtualization solutions. This is a game changer for the industry.”
