Workspot overview

What is Workspot?

Workspot is a turnkey SaaS platform that is designed to help IT teams in AEC, financial services, legal, life sciences, healthcare, manufacturing, and education industries, deliver cloud desktops to devices located across remote locations from the public cloud. The low latency system lets users deploy cloud desktops, workstations, and apps, which enables disaster recovery for desktop workloads.

Key features of Workspot include load balancing, multi-device support, DaaS, self service portal, two-factor authentication, remote access, desktop or application virtualization, and access control. IT organizations can use Workspot Control to add new cloud desktops across multiple cloud regions and public clouds to analyze and monitor activity data from a single admin console. Based on Microsoft Active Directory, Workspot Client enables businesses to ensure secure access into the system by blacklisting and whitelisting traffic, regulating device posture checks, securing data in motion and at rest, and logging events for auditing and compliance.

Workspot offers GPU workstation and cloud desktop configurations to meet unique requirements of knowledge workers, power users, and task workers. The simplified disaster recovery solution allows organizations to keep Windows 10 virtual desktops on standby in the cloud, from remote locations using any device, including Macs, home PCs, and tablets.

GPU in the cloud

Used weekly for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

We initially brought Workspot on to help with a Satelite office. This gave a small group of users full access to our data and programs without the lag of VPN and remote desktop. The use has expanded however to almost any remote employee to give them access to programs or systems in our network. We have had users work from across the globe on these systems with minimal lag.

Pros
Having the GPU integration was key for us and our workflows. Being able to access our programs and data from anywhere made this a no brainer for moving forward. The power it gave all levels of our employees in both compute and graphics ability was way better than any other VDI we had looked at. Ease of management was another big factor for us. With more options now for machine sizing on the GPU this really is a perfect solution.

Cons
At this point no, I would have said more configuration options around the GPU option but that has been addressed with the latest AMD releases.

Response from Workspot


Thank you, Omer. We've worked hard in tandem with our partners Microsoft and AMD to expand our GPU offerings. Happy to see they are working well for you, and that your team is experiencing the great performance our low-latency cloud workstations provide.

Workspot in classroom environment

Used daily for 1-2 years

Once we've implemented and installed the application on the designated computers, everything was easy to manage.

Pros
Workspot was fairly easy to implement with the assistance of their technical support including after sales service. This is for someone like me who never had any experience on this application but the way the program was written, it was easy to implement.

Cons
The only challenge with implementing this program was to install it physically in each of our Thin Client computers being used in the classroom. If there was an option to install it remotely without having to to be physically present at the location would be ideal.

Thank you, Ed. We are happy to see Workspot in use for education, and that you find Workspot easy to use and maintain.

Great Cloud VDI Competitor

Not needing to use VPN to access my workstation made Workspot a pleasant experience. The Onboarding Support Team was excellent. The Customer Success Team was always available to assist with on-demand issues. Very Pleased with Workspot Support.

Pros
The ability to access workstation from virtually any device without the need of using a VPN service, has made Workspot a necessary service in our organization.

Cons
The conference calling experience in Workspot could be better. Using conferencing software in Workspot can create an echo to users in the meeting (provided if audio input/output devices derive from built-in Speakers/Mic on host. This is not necessarily a Workspot issue.

Response from Workspot


Thanks for the feedback, Hector. We are pleased you had a great experience with our excellent customer success team. Please reach out to Workspot support at any time if you need further assistance.

Fast, easy to manage and most of all easy to setup.

Pros
Friendly interface. Makes VDI administration very easy.

Cons
Limited capability of templates, depending on the setup. In our case the AMD seems pretty new and its lacking that feature.

Response from Workspot


Thanks, Ricardo. Our engineering team works hard to build that simplicity. Also we've worked hard in tandem with our partners Microsoft and AMD to expand our GPU offerings, and they can offer great price/performance. You may want to try the AMDs again soon there has been much work done recently with updates to improve stability and performance.

Workspot has been wonderful to work with. Fast support response. regular check ins, and they are on board in helping us create new ways for us to do business.

Pros
The ability to manage multiple pools and have an entire VDI infrastructure that is so simple to administer is mind-blowing. The cost per user is less than Workspaces or WVD.

Cons
Needed to engage a Microsoft partner to get the infrastructure set up properly. Not simple, but it was fine.

Response from Workspot


Thanks for the response, Eric. We are happy to hear you're getting great price-performance and that Workspot is having a positive impact on your business. We look forward to working with you on new use cases!
