Secure – Your CAD data is now more secure than ever because it can also be stored on Microsoft Azure next to your NX cloud streamed instance, which in turn means it can be accessed from anywhere, anytime, and on any device without copying and transferring data. Data is secure because it does not leave your cloud environment. CAD data access can be controlled throughout your engineering team and company, no matter the size.

Scalable – This NX solution provides quick deployment with no need to purchase or update physical servers and workstations. The number of CAD users can also be scaled up and down based on current business needs. You can now innovate with peace of mind without the worry of procuring and managing any new hardware. Sleep easy knowing your cloud environment is backed by Microsoft Azure, providing unrivalled uptime and availability.

Cost Effective – NX can be easily streamed from Microsoft Azure to any computer, saving you money by simplifying implementation and maintenance, while reducing implementation cost as well as reducing the total cost of ownership for your CAD software deployment.  You can easily access CAD data in NX on any computer, even from a lower hardware specification laptop. You no longer need to purchase, manage, and upgrade expensive workstations which are replaced with an affordable usage-based service fee from Microsoft Azure.

“Siemens NX on Azure has enabled us to provide customers instant remote access to NX with no downloads, installs, or configuration.
