Penguin Computing announced its new Scyld Cloud Workstation with a unique remote 3D visualization capability featuring graphics accelerated and client-less remote supercomputing through a standard Wi-Fi connection and browser, essentially giving customers universal access to high performance computing in the cloud.

Scyld Cloud Workstation, powered by NVIDIA GRID™ technology, ensures a more efficient workflow. It saves valuable time by eliminating the need for downloading large data files and moving pre and post-processing to the cloud. The ability to run real-time, interactive GUI workflows and 3D visualization in the cloud eliminates the need to move large files down to on-premises workstations.

 Our Scyld Cloud Workstation solves the problem of providing a powerful, remote 3D experience in a seamless way,” said Tom Coull, President and CEO, Penguin Computing. “There’s no browser plug-in or application installation needed, and the difficulty of security changes is eliminated with secure access provided via HTTPS.”

Scyld Cloud Workstation provides accelerated 3D performance from a remote server displayed directly into a standard browser, eliminating the need for a third-party client and the potential security breaches associated with opening non-standard ports in a company’s firewall.


NVIDIA GRID technology enables visually demanding applications from either on-premise or cloud-based virtualized servers to be available to users across an organization. Because graphics processing can now be run on the GPU instead of the CPU, data center managers can provide a graphics-rich PC experience to more users in virtualized environments.
