In a market first ITConsult is proud to deliver the ‘DesignPod‘, a pre-validated technology solution enabling firms requiring even the most resource consuming design software (think Autodesk, Solidworks, Siemens Teamcentre, Photoshop and others) the opportunity to virtualise.
Traditionally graphics has been handled by CPU’s located in data centre’s. These centralised servers delivered management efficiencies, security and a cost effective way to roll out design software when compared to the traditional PC under every designer and viewer desk. However the inability of these central CPU’s to handle graphics rich workloads ultimately delivered a poor performing platform at the users end- extending render times, providing poor frame rates and ultimately extending design cycles.
DesignPods overcomes this performance issue for the first time. Combining robust storage, switching and server platforms with Flash technology and a cutting edge GPU to take the load off server CPU’s has enabled the platform to deliver PC like performance but with all the efficiency of the data centre.
