Simple IT for Multi-site Collaboration

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Morro Data, an innovative provider of high performance global file services, today introduced Remote Team Collaboration for Revit for the AEC (Architecture Engineering Construction) industry. RTC for Revit enables Autodesk Revit users in multiple locations to collaborate among each other. RTC is an advanced collaboration feature of Morro Data’s CloudNAS global file services.

“Virtual teams are a reality for many AEC companies, particularly those with multiple locations,” said Paul Tien, founder and CEO of Morro Data. “With the added RTC feature, the CloudNAS hybrid-cloud architecture with global file system addresses the remote collaboration needs of Revit designers. The #1 feedback from our beta users is the ease of deployment for such a function of high value. The availability of RTC for Revit further pushes forward our vision of enabling ‘Global Data at LAN Speed’ for businesses of all industries and sizes.”

Morro Data CloudNAS modernizes enterprise file sharing with a scalable hybrid cloud architecture. Connected through a global file system, CloudNAS gateways are deployed on premises to store files in the cloud and sync among multiple sites while presenting to users a fast, secure, and familiar NAS interface. Applications for CloudNAS include multi-site sync, cloud backup and archive for files and VM, and design collaboration. Cloud storage providers supported include AWS, Wasabi, and Backblaze.

RTC for Revit enables a virtual Revit team to work on the same project as if on a local network. Revit users can perform Sync-with-Central and Reload Latest operations across remote sites and CloudNAS handles the necessary file syncing and locking through its global file system. The project files are safely stored in the cloud and cached to the local CacheDrive gateways for performance.

CloudNAS with RTC for Revit provides the following key benefits for the AEC companies:

  • Remote Collaboration: High performance file syncing and locking for remote Revit users.
  • Business Continuity: Files and Central Models are safely stored in the cloud. Disaster recovery can be done in minutes by syncing to a new CacheDrive.
  • Easy Expansion: Simply add CacheDrives to new sites.
  • Storage Consolidation: Sync, Replicate, Archive shares store different data types in single namespace.
  • Other Enterprise Functions: SharePoint Sync for Office 365 acceleration, Morro Audit for compliance, Morro Migrate for seamlessly migrating data from Windows file servers to cloud.
  • Low Deployment Cost and low TCO: Choice of CacheDrives from desktop to VM and choice of Business, Enterprise, and Design Collaboration plans.

“Morro Data’s CloudNAS RTC for Revit solves the virtual team collaboration conundrum for us,” said Richard W., senior project engineer at GFDS. “We always wanted to be able to work together in real time among our various remote locations and having a CacheDrive at each location allows us to all feel like we are working in the same office. We like that the CloudNAS deployment and management is very simple and we are very happy with the collaboration functionality that Morro Data’s CloudNAS provides our team.”
