The Virtual Desktops are taking over 3D studios and here’s why!

by Mint

Technological development and constant changes in the field of broadly understood technology give a lot of opportunities to develop the ways in which we work and create our creative works. One of such innovative solutions is Virtual Desktop, which, thanks to a cloud-based solution, gives a lot of possibilities and completely changes the way we work in our creative studios. 

Desktop-as-a-service is definitely a game-changer, so we decided that it is worth explaining what exactly this virtual desktop technology is and how you can get started working with one in the next 30 minutes.

What is Desktop-as-a-Service?

Simply put, DaaS provides virtual applications and desktop services via a public or private cloud service. You can access this service via an internet connection, web browser or an application downloaded on a device such as a laptop, desktop computer, smartphone, or tablet. Considering it’s most often available in the form of a subscription, it is extremely easy to start working on your chosen virtual powerful machine.

When starting our virtual machine, deciding to use DaaS, we already have a pre-installed system (usually Windows) and sometimes also various programs, such as Blender or Maya.

To sum up, all you have to do is sit down at your computer, connect to the network, visit the website, pay for the subscription and use a fully functional, very powerful computer.

Here you can see a clear diagram, of how it works. 

So what’s good about switching to a Virtual Desktop?

Easy setup and access 

By deciding to use the Virtual Desktop, you have the option of using your virtual computer, after paying a subscription fee, from everywhere. You can work freely on a 10-year-old laptop, and in the case of today’s solutions, connect to the cloud with a few clicks.

Painless team collaboration 

Another great advantage of such services is the much easier work when you work in a team. All infrastructure is prepared for your entire teamwork environment. Save time on file uploads. Actually, just forget about them altogether! The files are always there when you and your team need them

Much cheaper alternative to expensive hardware

When you decide to switch to Virtual Desktop, services like this always come with a price, however, very often when the costs are calculated, they are definitely less than the investment in a new high-power computer – especially in an era of GPU deficits and their rising prices.

Environment protection 

When you go cloud, you are contributing to the protection of the environment. Cloud desktops are definitely less harmful to the environment than changing your rig every year.

Pre-installed Apps&Programs 

Some Virtual Desktops often come with pre-installed software, such as Premiere Pro, Blender, or Maya. That’s extra hours saved for your next project.

The cool kids of Virtual Desktops service

Amazon WorkSpace is a cloud-based virtual desktop that can act as a replacement for a traditional desktop. A WorkSpace is available as a bundle of operating systems, compute resources, storage space, and software applications that allow a user to perform day-to-day tasks just like using a traditional desktop. It is available in a Pay-as-you-go subscription.

Cloudalize Daas


Cloudalize offers a very similar service with similar hardware power, but what distinguishes them is very easy accessibility from any hardware level, including mobile, through IoS or Android applications.
