Autodesk prepare AutoCAD for Citrix

Autodesk are evaluating running various AutoCAD versions on Citrix. London based company IMS (Integrated Managed Services Ltd) have been authorised to undertake a number of pilot projects with large enterprise clients to run AutoCAD based products in a Citrix environment.

These trials indicate a shift in how Autodesk may offer their products in the future. AutoCAD software has always been a PC based solution but now with IMS pioneering the use of Citrix, the idea of running AutoCAD in a virtualised server environment is a reality.

IMS have been testing and running all versions of AutoCAD in their central London data centres since 2008 and have been at the forefront of this development. Chief Operating Officer of IMS, Julian Carr, stated ‘We are in changing times for the way IT is deployed, now with numerous ways of accessing your data, no one is immune to these changes, so we are pleased to be piloting the running of AutoCAD versions over Citrix’.

IMS are in the unique position of being the only company in the UK being both a fully accredited Autodesk Reseller and Citrix Development Partner. IMS are offering the full suite of AutoCAD software versions into the Public Sector, Utilities, Architectural, Engineering and Construction industries, with their data centres and dedicated engineering team there really is a better way of working for any company that want to consolidate, collaborate on, and centralise their data.

Mr. Carr also stated: "We can supply the full AEC (Architecture/Engineering/Construction) product suite from Autodesk and with our dedication to Citrix and the way your CAD data can be accessed securely over the internet, we feel the future looks exciting both for us and our customers."
