Autodesk, Inc., a provider of 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, recently introduced Autodesk Cloud, a collection of more than a dozen web-based capabilities, products and services designed to enable customers to extend their desktops with greater mobility, new viewing and sharing capabilities, and more computing power.
In addition, Autodesk Subscription customers will now have exclusive access to cloud-based, high-performance rendering and design optimization, and enhanced collaboration capabilities. Autodesk Subscription now provides three GB of online storage for each seat of software on Subscription, for greater access to design and engineering documents, anywhere, anytime.

“For more than a decade, Autodesk has embraced the power of the cloud to extend the functionality of our design solutions and help our customers work more effectively,” said Amar Hanspal, senior vice-president, Platform Solutions and Emerging Business at Autodesk. “With Autodesk Cloud, we are demonstrating an even greater commitment to helping our customers solve the world’s toughest design and engineering challenges.”

Autodesk has been a pioneer in cloud-based applications for the design industry – starting more than a decade ago with Autodesk Buzzsaw – and more than a dozen cloud-based offerings currently available to customers are now encompassed as part of Autodesk Cloud.

Autodesk Cloud provides a foundation to enable all Autodesk customers to begin using the cloud to access and store their work from anywhere; to view their work through web browsers or mobile devices; and to share their work with other users, even users without Autodesk software. Cloud applications, such as Autodesk Cloud documents, AutoCAD WS and the Autodesk Design Review mobile app, provide users with the freedom to work where they can be most effective, and to view, edit and share designs anywhere and with almost anyone.


Autodesk works with multiple partners, including Amazon and Citrix, to provide a scalable cloud computing infrastructure to meet customer needs.
