Panzura solves the specific challenges that AEC firms face when using a distributed workforce to collaborate using applications like Revit, AutoCAD and Civil 3D.
Sharing and working collaboratively presents 2 distinct problems when working with mega-sized files held in a central server. Files can frequently take over 20 minutes to open, wasting a significant amount of productive time. And, lack of ability to completely lock files when open for editing can result in multiple versions that must be merged, or worse – overwriting someone else’s work.
Network latency between sites slows everything down because one site hosts the data and all other sites access it remotely. This latency means a 1.5MB Civil 3D file can take 25 minutes to open remotely.
Panzura eliminates latency and gives your users fast data access everywhere. With Panzura, the same 1.5MB Civil 3D file opens in just 8 seconds.
