What is a workstation ?

7/12/2022

A workstation is a PC in the cloud

A Workstation is simply a distant computer you can access and manage through the internet.

You can treat is as a totally regular computer, it’s just a PC… in the cloud !

A workstation is comprised of:

  • Its computing capabilities (its CPU, GPU, etc…)
  • Its storage (SSD)

🤓 In more technical terms…

A workstation is a virtual machine that runs on public cloud providers (such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud or Microsoft Azure).

By leveraging those services, Flaneer has access to a huge pool of machines that we prepare and secure for you to access it easily and in a cost-effective manner !

What can I do with a workstation?

With Flaneer, you can do pretty much everything you would do with a regular PC, such as installing applications, browsing the web, editing files… Anything. But since it’s in the cloud, you can actually do much more !

A few examples are the following:

  • 👥 Share your PC with your collaborators, even from super far away, but just inviting them to your organization and giving them access to your workstation
  • 💾 Save your whole workstation for later or to duplicate it on another workstation
  • 🚀 Create an overpowered infrastructure with just a few clicks by using Flaneer’s cloud files and workstations ! An example of what you can create is the following:
