Press Release

Cloudalize and NVIDIA launch cloud GPU powered collaborative workspaces starting at 0,29€/hr., setting a new standard for cloud-based collaboration

Posted by Andreea Arcaleanu on Sept 27, 2016

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS: Cloudalize and NVIDIA announce GDaaS™ (GPU Desktop-as-a-Service) Platform, the first vGPU-accelerated DaaS Platform, powered by NVIDIA TESLA M60 GRID cards delivered under the recently announced NVIDIA Cloud service provider model.

Cloudalize’ s industry leading management console radically simplifies the provisioning and deployment of the most powerful virtual workspaces via the GDaaS Platform. With GDaaS™, anyone can instantly setup collaborative workspaces through a fully automated portal getting results in minutes.



Benny Willen CEO Cloudalize comments:
“With the Cloudalize GDaaS Platform launch, cloud GPU powered collaborative workspaces starting at 0,29€/hr have become a reality thanks to NVIDIA GRID CSP. Engineers, designers and architects in geographically dispersed teams can now truly collaborate with CAD, CAE, 3D, GIS or any other graphics-intensive applications anytime, anywhere, on any device. For the first time ever, cloud vGPU profiles ensure that users only pay for the amount of GPU power they need. This is more than 10X more cost effective versus having to take a whole GPU chip in pass-through mode. Instant self-provisioned deployment through a fully automated web portal, zero CAPEX, 5 different performance profiles and a monthly or hourly billing model offer great value to GPU accelerated users in the Architecture Engineering and Construction sector.”

Peter Culley CEO Spatial Affairs Bureau, a global architecture company and GDaaS customer comments:
“We compared the Cloudalize offer to different alternatives such as IT providers proposing to build a bespoke VDI solution in the cloud. Cloudalize quickly became the preferred solution for us because of its immediate availability and simple interface, incomparable cost effectiveness on a monthly basis and zero upfront CAPEX. In addition, a direct and enthusiastic contact with the people behind the operation was at once enlightening and reassuring. The other options either required hefty upfront consultancy fees to build a VDI solution for us along with ongoing IT management and / or a jump into the dark for appropriate processing speed workspaces. We tested GDaaS in multiple locations, and the performance has far outstripped the more traditional remote desktops we were trying to use for 3D designs and general office synchronicity. We decided to adopt GDaaS in the course of just 2 weeks based on these factors.”

GDaaS™ provides a wide choice of performance optimized cloud workstation configurations, made accessible by using all virtualization options on the newest NVIDIA GRID™ cards.

NVIDIA GRID™ is a graphics virtualization platform that extends the power of NVIDIA GPU technology to virtual desktops and apps. It delivers an immersive, high-quality user experience for everyone from designers to mobile professionals to office workers. NVIDIA GRID technology lets IT tap into a powerful graphics-accelerated cloud solution to centralize apps and data, with virtual workspaces that offer improved security, productivity, and cost-efficiency.

Matthew McGrigg, Global Strategic Cloud Alliances NVIDIA comments:
“The Cloudalize GDaaS and NVIDIA GRID CSP launch announcements underpin the NVIDIA vision to consume GPU from wherever the customer chooses. Maximizing their flexibility about where, when and how they work. Furthermore, it is enhancing corporations existing owned infrastructure by allowing to burst to the Cloud when in need of flexible or incremental graphical capacity.”

GDaaS™ Beta will be available as of 18 November 2016 and is tailored to be delivered through channel partners such as managed service providers, software vendors and system integrators. Partners can use and resell the GDaaS™ Platform under their own brand (white label).

Cloudalize breaks BIM deadlock with instant cloud deployment

Posted by Jan Festjens on Nov 17, 2015

Technology start-up Cloudalize announces TryBIM, a web-based trial that instantly deploys an IT environment for building information modelling (BIM).

Based on Cloudalize’s cloud computing platform GDaaS (GPU Desktop-as-a-Service) and powered by NVIDIA GRID™ GPUs, TryBIM combines GPU-powered virtual desktops and a Revit cloud server, all pre-installed and pre-configured for the user. For thousands of architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) firms this platform offers an immediate, low-risk way to experience Cloudalize’s BIM solution first hand.

"Countries like the UK will mandate BIM for public works from 2016, so the AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) industry will need to build on the progress already made – driving change and leading the transformation” explains Nathan Baker, Director of Engineering Knowledge at the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). He added that the shift to digital engineering processes should bring uniformity, efficiency and collaboration to the building process, and increase competitiveness for ICE’s members.

Information communications technology (ICT) is a key roadblock to BIM adoption. Radically restructuring their IT infrastructure — and potentially putting time-critical deployments or international collaborations at risk — is a major challenge for many firms.

GDaaS solves this problem by instantly deploying virtual workstations in the cloud through a simple, self-servicing web portal. “Cloudalize is instantly empowering the AEC industry to deploy full ICT environments for several BIM project partners in a very flexible and cost-effective way,” explains Benny Willen, CEO and Co-founder of Cloudalize. “Now, thanks to TryBIM, firms can get hands-on with GDaaS and evaluate it for themselves.”

“Architects, engineers and designers can now access any application on any device from any location,” adds Sarah Mannion, NVIDIA GRID Senior Business Manager at NVIDIA. “The power of NVIDIA GRID graphics virtualization technology means GDaaS desktops have the ability to handle core AEC applications like Autodesk Revit without compromising application performance.”

Cloudalize and NVIDIA will showcase TryBIM live onstage at the Revit Technology Conference Europe in Budapest from Thursday 29 to Saturday 31 October, 2015. See www.RTCevents.com.
