Run Revit on the Cloud

Autodesk’s Revit is a standard bearer of Building Information Modelling (BIM) projects across the world. It used by architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) firms to create new buildings, design new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems.

Despite the naysayers, it can run safely and securely on the Cloud. It is possible with Cloudalize’s Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution. Cloudalize’s solution is powered by the latest in graphical-processing units (GPUs). They provide greater speed and computational power than the average central-processing unit (CPU) in an average laptop or desktop computer.

This extra power delivers greater performance and access to run the latest Revit versions for your work.

Cloudalize in Action

Rudi Van Thienen and Bart Vande Kerckhove both work for large architecture and engineering firms in Belgium. With years of experience in the field, they understand the challenges faced in setting up IT infrastructure in the early stages of projects.

In 2016, they made the switch to Cloudalize’s GPU-powered DaaS solution to run their Revit BIM-software for their engineering and architectural projects.

Using Cloudalize enabled Rudi and Bart to instantly have GPU-powered virtual and secure workstations as well as Autodesk’s Revit servers. They and their teams had instant access to Cloudalize’s DaaS from any device – laptop, tablets and thin clients – simply from an internet connection.

Advantages of Cloudalize

There are three principle advantages for Rudi and Bart in using Cloudalize’s secure and virtual workstations for their Revit projects:

  1. Cloudalize can deploy the workstations and servers in minutes instead of weeks or months depending on the scale of the projects.
  2. Cloudalize’s pay-per-use model gives Rudi and Bart financial flexibility to scale up and down depending on the number of engineers or projects working on the project.
  3. Cloudalize’s performance is superior on two key levels:
    • The synchronisation between servers and workstations happens in seconds instead of minutes allowing almost real-time collaboration.
    • There is more computing power by harnessing the pull potential of the graphical processing units on-demand from the Cloud.
