Workstation

Workstation—What Is It?

A workstation can be defined as a computer type that is primarily used for CAM/CAD engineering applications, software development, desktop publishing and apps that require computing power in a large amount coupled with relatively higher graphics capabilities.

In general, a workstation usually comes with a large graphics screen with high resolution, built in network support and GUI. It also features a RAM of at least sixty-four megabytes. Some of the workstations available in the market have a built-in mass storage device like a disk-drive.

Windows NT and UNIX are two most common and popular OS (Operating Systems) that are used in workstations.

As mentioned above, a workstation has a high computing power. Its computing power lies somewhere between that of a minicomputer and personal computer. Simply stated, a high end PC is equal to a low end workstation, and a high end workstation is equal to a minicomputer.

Here, it is important to note that just like PCs, most of the workstations are computers for single users. However, they can be linked and connected together to successfully create a LAN (Local Area Network).

Some of the popular workstation brands that are most sought after by individuals and organisations alike are HP and Lenovo. Different models are available from both brands.

HP is one workstation brand that offers both mobile workstations as well as desktop workstations.

Benefits of Investing in Workstations for Businesses

Offers Intelligent Performance

In comparison to a personal computer, a workstation has the ability to deliver not just the performance of a typical desktop computer, but also offer intelligent performance for several applications like CAD (Computer-Aided-Design), video editing, and number crunching.
Professionals like designers, financial analysts, researchers and engineers can easily perform and run demanding apps and perform tasks like digital work, financial analysis, rendering of complex graphics and perform analytical computations.

Enjoy Enhanced Productivity

As workstations offer users the ability to run and perform demanding tasks easily, this truly enables organisations to boost their workplace performance and enjoy enhanced productivity. Employees using workstations tend to become more productive, and this also leads to increased job satisfaction.

Handle Heavy Workloads

By investing in and installing workstations in your organisational landscape, you can easily handle heavy workloads and deliver more in less time. From fast rendering of computer graphics to providing excellent support for technical and massive jobs, and memory space for large tasks, employees can easily handle heavy workloads using workstations without experiencing any downtime or system slowdown.
