Rescale Elastic Cloud Workstations (ECW), known as workstations, offer you an easy way to provide a secure, managed, cloud-based virtual engineering experience to your end users. Workstations take care of the heavy lifting of running simulations and provide a fully managed service so that you don’t have to worry about procuring, deploying, and managing a complex environment.

With workstations, any user can spin up a virtual desktop with the infinite power of the cloud for computational engineering workflows, including: Computer-Aided Design (CAD), running end-to-end simulations – from preparation to solving, and analyzing results for graphics-intensive visualization. Workstations are bundled with the full suite of Rescale, including multi-cloud support, software lifecycle automation with 1000+ applications, full-stack security and compliance, and full-stack performance optimization.

Some of the benefits of using workstations include:

  • Interactive solving: Scale up your machine’s hardware in order to run simulations in a visual environment.

  • Multi-cloud workstations: Optimize your latency, performance, and cost using workstations, built with multi-cloud support. Workstations connect seamlessly with AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and Oracle Cloud.

  • Easy access from Rescale Jobs → Workstations: Access all of your Rescale files directly from a workstation so that you no longer have to drag and drop files.

  • 1000+ Applications and On-Demand Licensing: License over 1000+ engineering software applications on the fly using the newest hardware, only paying when you use it versus paying upfront.

  • Visualization with NiceDCV: View your workstation directly in your browser or through a local client with low latency. You can also run graphics-intensive applications remotely, eliminating the need for expensive dedicated computers.
