Yes, Using an EpiGrid Gridstation VDI, SOLIDWORKS can be used in a web browser. We build your Virtual Workstations in your company cloud environment. Employees can access their workstations from any computer, securely, anytime. All company data stays on the virtual workstation and never leaves your domain. This helps add a level of security when hiring contractors or working remotely.
Off-site data storage reduces IT costs, streamlines processes, and saves money. While many engineering departments first thought cloud-access would be too slow or not secure enough to transport large files of proprietary information, EpiGrid's advances have actually made access quicker than local in some cases and much more secure. Redundant backups mean you're never without access to your data.
EpiGrid does not sell SOLIDWORKS licenses. However, we work with SOLIDWORKS VARs closely to setup the necessary configurations and licensing.
