The Challenge

When courses were suspended during March 2020 because of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, a number of architectural and urban planning students of UCLouvain found that they had no method of continuing with their course work.

However, implementing Cloudalize’s GPU-powered DaaS solution in a matter of hours helped them to have the high-speed and graphical-performance needed to continue their course work remotely and prepare for the end-of-year exams.
