Why CAD Users are Moving to the Cloud?
High Performance Computing
Nebula Cloud Workbench
Nebula Cloud Workbench for CAD Engineers was
born to eliminate the headaches of desktop-installed CAD.
Recent survey of CAD and
Design Engineers has thrown key insights on the top pains of hundreds of
professional CAD users sick of having to jump over software hurdles while doing
their jobs. In order of annoyance, the six most common complaints are:
fees I’m paying for CAD & BIM licenses, maintenance and hardware.”
with license codes and registration hassles.”
· “I can
not use my on-premise license on cloud for 3D modelling and rendering jobs
cannot edit on the road.”
cannot collaborate with the teammates and share the workloads”
everyone on the team and suppliers are on the same version of CAD software.”
takes a long time to configure a computer and install CAD software on it.”
lost data due to crashes.”
project needs are short-term and need flexible licensing model”
· “I don’t
have enough compute power to speed up my project deliverables”
How common are these problems?
Are they persistent enough to drive engineers away from the familiar but
frustrating world of traditional CAD? To find out, we surveyed more than 500 CAD
and Design Engineers. Before they moved to full-cloud based CAD, here are the
percentages of those fed up by the following pain points:

It’s just been a few months since Nebula Cloud launched its commercial release, following a highly
successful beta test that included 40,000 user hours in several client projects and POC's.
As people are moving to full-cloud CAD, we want to understand why. Every business, CAD included,
must figure out what their customers want and how to best deliver the user experience and get the true ROI.
So Why are CAD Users Moving to
There are no shortcuts to
getting these answers. We’re lucky enough to chat with some of you by email and
phone. We also recently reached out to hundreds of you with a simple open-ended
question: Why did YOU purchase Nebula Cloud?

We’re here to make your job
you build better products faster in the cloud;
you to work from anywhere on any computer;
rid of the hassles of IT, installation, upgrades and licensing.
Nebula Cloud provides a
simple, powerful, and consistent interface for submitting and monitoring jobs
on remote clusters, clouds, and other resources, allowing engineers and
researchers to focus on core activities and spend less time learning how to run
applications and moving data around. Remote visualization and collaboration
capabilities bring access to an expensive, high-end 3D visualization datacenter
hardware right to the user.
Key Benefits of
Nebula Cloud Workbench
Users can instantly collaborate on large volumes of data in the comfort
of a familiar interactive application, anywhere and anytime. Remote colleagues
can share session views and controls across WAN links.
Users get a simple, powerful UX that's consistent across desktop, web,
Integration with Nebula
Cloud allows optimized application provisioning on graphical and
computing resources for maximum utilization.
Zero Data Movement
Only pixels are transferred, eliminating the prohibitive times
associated with data transfer.
Access provides continuity of remote application sessions across network
Because Nebula Cloud is
built on an open architecture, you can use third-party applications without needing
additional software development.
