Moving to the cloud was supposed to drive efficiency — providing unlimited processing power, storage, and scalability — which is why so many leading Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) firms were quick to jump in. However, with that migration came the need that many industry experts had not considered previously: enabling distributed design teams to collaborate in real-time on resource-intensive graphical content and tools such as Revit, Autodesk Civil 3D, and CAD/CAM.
The problem arises when multiple users across the globe scramble to access the same data files at the same time because file replication across the sites results in versioning, copy data sprawl, data collisions, and potentially data corruption. This in turn reduces the speed at which your team can work together and increases the cost of the organization considerably.
Mead & Hunt is one of the more than 230 AEC firms that relies on Panzura to deliver high-quality Building Information Modeling (BIM) projects faster and with more predictable outcomes at a lower IT cost. “I’ve worked in IT at Mead & Hunt for more than 29 years and when an issue of this magnitude is solved, I like to call it a Holy Grail moment,” said Andy in this Mead & Hunt case study. “I’ve only ever said that twice before, Panzura makes it three. That’s how great this product is for the industry.”
Visit Panzura in USCAD booth #AE380, Workspot booth AE402, or AVAIL booth AE 253 to find out how Panzura Freedom can help you deliver one global cloud file system. We’ll show you how you can enable users across different sites to efficiently collaborate using a single source of truth to data.
When integrated with Vizion.AI, Panzura’s data intelligence solution, customers can eliminate scaling and performance bottlenecks with a single, seamless view of the network. Intelligent data caching and dynamic data indexing provides powerful search, analysis, and control of the multi-cloud data.
