Autodesk University’s Journey to Virtual Workstations
Autodesk University is the flagship conference of the design software maker Autodesk. One of its most famous products is Auto-CAD, which is so data intensive it requires a workstation to run. The company used to set up a fleet of hundreds of these machines for Autodesk University, held each year in Las Vegas, to train users in Auto-CAD and other high performance design software. But no more. With advances like Nutanix Xi Frame, a desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) technology, Autodesk University users learn on virtual machines running in the cloud.
