You probably have been told that you cannot run AutoCAD in the Cloud. Well, thanks to Cloudalize’s GPU-powered desktops, it is possible! By doing so, Cloudalize helps you to do the job faster and more cost-effective. Read on to find out how.

What is AutoCAD?

For those who may not know, AutoCAD is the industry-leading computer-aided design (CAD) software designed by AutoDesk. It used in the architect, engineering, and construction (AEC) sector to create precise 2D and 3D drawings. Users have industry-specific features to skilfully design floor plans and elevations, draw piping and auto-generate layers and lists.

Why run AutoCAD on the Cloud?

Data Security 

Your project data is safe and sound on Cloudalize’s secure servers. 

24/7 Access 

You have access 24/7 to your projects on Cloudalize wherever you are in the world. Our desktops are pre-installed and pre-configured to Microsoft Windows 10. In addition, you can run the desktops on any device including on Apple’s MacOS. 

On Cloudalize, you can run your AutoCAD training courses too from the Cloud. Check out our article explaining more.

No-hardware requirements 

AutoCAD is heavy and relies on the graphics card driver of your computer. You will need to have over 3 GHz of processing power, 16 GB of RAM and a 4 GB graphic-processing unit (GPU). 

You don’t have to worry about these hardware requirements with Cloudalize! Our virtual desktops are powered by NVIDIA Quadro P2000 and P5000 cards. These provide all the processing power and more that you require to run AutoCAD with ease. 

Furthermore, it is possible to divide your projects to 2 different desktops: P2000 for lighter projects and P5000 for heavy projects such as 3D rendering.
