Hey Everyone!

My firm is doing a joint venture project with another firm in NC.  We are currently trying to figure out how to do work on a central file through two location.  We were trying to figure out how to do this through a cloud and making sure that it's in realtime.  Does anyone have any suggestions or was successful in using a cloud?

So far we are looking at four options:

  1. Buzzsaw Sync (is it in real time?)
  2. Drop Box (we've been hearing a lot of stuff about it: See here - http://therevitkid.blogspot.com/2012/01/using-dropbox-as-revit-server-free.html)
  3. Cbeyond Cloud (is it in real time?)
  4. Revit Connect (you have to buy a router and a server at each location and it's freakin' expensive)

Thanks in advance!

I use SpiderOak. 2GB free, and then it's ony $10 per month per 100GB. DropBox is $10 for 50GB. SpiderOak is extremely flexible as well, allowing me to pick and choose what to backup. It has a really nice "deleted items" feature, and stores older versions of your files.

use remote desktop or something similar. put the workstation in once central location and connect to them via laptop or desktop. super easy, highly effective.

Remote desktop works if you have equipment laying around unused.  But it also mandates that all of the users library resides in that network and it also opens your network up to someone else.  We would never allow this.

 

A cloud service would be best to host the central files.

What are some good cloud services?

i worked on RDP with consultants nationwide on an international airport. im sure the federal agencies that audited my network would have has something to say about it if there was security risk. any half brained IT personel can insure that doesn't happen. You can also have up to 6 users per machine if done properly.

We have not had an occasion to use any clouds yet.  Did you look at this one?

I watched their demo and it looks interesting.  It is a private cloud setup.

I had a meeting yesterday and my office is leaning towards their internet provider's cloud feature: Cbeyond Cloud.  They are going to install the Revit Server on the cloud and see how that goes.
