The growth of cloud services has been extremely prominent over the last few years and will continue to see a significant increase over the next 12 months. A recent report by Microsoft projecting its quarterly activity from the previous months highlighted that Azure’s revenue had seen a growth of 98%, with server products and cloud services revenue also showing an increase of 18%.

The rise in adoption of services such as Azure shows that businesses are looking to adopt the benefits of hybrid cloud as this enables them to ‘mix and match’ the advantages of both public and private cloud. Once utilising the full benefits of the cloud with a hybrid solution, businesses can further take advantage of the features of the cloud and look to develop 3D applications within the cloud.

3D in the cloud

The development of 3D processes in the cloud can allow businesses to take full advantage of increased power, can make the most of the 3D components that are optimised for the cloud and enable the dynamic scalability of cloud implementation. It can avoid paying for idle computing resources and help to accelerate workflows through mobile and global accessibility.

3D printing has revolutionised many traditional manufacturing processes by reducing the time taken from the design process to prototyping, and from sample to mass production. It is estimated that the 3D printing market will be worth $33 billion by 2023. Similar to AI and Blockchain, this technology has not yet been used to its full potential. 3D applications in the cloud are generally a much quicker option and reduces the drain on resources. Using a modern deployment mechanism, businesses would be able to extract the full potential of technology like 3D and, most recently, 4D printing.

Supporting 3D applications

Businesses can adopt 100% browser operated software which enables full support for all CAD/3D applications to run in a browser without utilising or depending on computation resources from the end device. This means that users can access both applications provided from anywhere and with any device, irrespective of their location.

There are two ways of providing CAD/3D applications in the cloud. They can be connecting in-house hosting environments to oneclick or through Cloud Resource Manager, oneclick’s interface to deploy virtual machines directly in data centres of well-known Iaas providers such as Microsoft Azure. oneclick then uses the latest streaming technology for transmission to guarantee smooth working, even with low bandwidths. The computing and graphics power, offered by GPUs in Azure is performed by the data centres of Microsoft Azure, which allows less powerful end devices to utilise resource intensive software.

Through developing 3D in the cloud, businesses can further thrive from the benefits of the cloud and can continue to optimise their business processes. There are companies such as oneclick that are helping businesses to use browser operated 3D software, allowing them to take full advantage of 3D in the cloud.
