The button opens up the create workstation modal where users can easily deploy one or more workstations based on workstation templates they have made previously.

The infrastructure control button will change depending on the status of the Lens Platform and the infrastructure. For example, If all the infrastructure is off then the
Start infrastructure button will be shown. Users can start, stop and cancel infrastructure operations easily with this button.
