Amazon AppStream 2.0 – 3D Design & Engineering
On-demand access to SaaS applications and powerful virtual desktops
AppStream 2.0 is a fully managed AWS End User Computing (EUC) service that provides users secure access to applications and powerful virtual desktops. Users can access CAD, CAM, and CAE applications such as SOLIDWORKS, Siemens NX, MathWorks MATLAB, or AVEVA Everything 3D on any computer. Each user's experience is fluid and responsive because applications run on virtual machines (VMs) optimized for their use cases, and the NICE DCV protocol automatically adjusts each streaming session to network conditions. Your applications run on AWS next to your data, so you can accelerate engineering workloads by performing pre and post visualization work directly on AWS.
Work without workstations
Users can access GPU-intensive applications at any time and continue to use multiple monitors and 3D mice. Your applications are streamed from AWS to any computer, including Chromebooks, Macs, and PCs. You no longer need to purchase, manage, and upgrade workstations.
Accelerate engineering workflows
Running your applications on AppStream 2.0 lets you perform pre and post visualization work directly on AWS. Applications can natively access your network storage and file shares so users can launch simulations without uploading or downloading data.
Provide a fluid and responsive user experience
Each user's applications are highly responsive because they run on VMs optimized for their use cases. The NICE DCV protocol automatically adjusts each streaming session to network conditions for a fluid user experience.
Users across the globe can view and interact with your centralized data through applications on AppStream 2.0. They no longer need to duplicate and proliferate sensitive design data by downloading it to each workstation they use.
Centrally manage applications
Each user accesses the same version of your applications. You centrally manage your applications on AppStream 2.0 and can stop managing installations and updates on each user's computer.
Secure applications and data
Applications and data are not stored on users' computers. Your applications are streamed as encrypted pixels and access data secured within your network. AppStream 2.0 runs on AWS, so you benefit from a data center and network architecture built for the most security-sensitive organizations.
