In the realm of remote CAD collaboration, businesses face a unique set of challenges that hinder operational efficiency and team productivity. From the inefficiencies of VPNs to the limitations of traditional cloud services, the struggle to maintain seamless collaboration on CAD projects across dispersed teams is real. These challenges not only slow down project timelines but also compromise data security and version control, making it difficult for teams to work as effectively as they would in a shared physical space.

VPN Inefficiencies

Reliance on VPNs for remote access to CAD files results in slow file opening times and collaboration inefficiencies, especially with large CAD files.

Cloud Limitations

Traditional cloud services struggle with real-time collaboration features and efficient handling of large CAD files, leading to productivity losses.

Data Security Concerns

The need for secure, permissions-based access to CAD files is paramount, yet businesses grapple with ensuring data security in remote setups.

Version Control Challenges

Maintaining version control and preventing data loss during collaborative efforts pose significant challenges without advanced file locking mechanisms.

Identifying these challenges is crucial for enhancing your team's remote CAD collaboration efficiency.

Existing Solutions and Their Limitations

In the quest for optimal remote CAD collaboration, businesses often encounter roadblocks that traditional solutions like VPNs, SharePoint, Dropbox, and even specialized platforms like AutoCAD Cloud fail to address. These challenges not only impede operational efficiency but also compromise data security and team productivity. As the landscape of remote work continues to evolve, the limitations of existing solutions become increasingly apparent, underscoring the need for a more advanced approach.

VPN Inefficiencies

VPNs, while common, suffer from slow performance and reliability issues, particularly with CAD applications requiring high-speed access and file integrity, leading to significant productivity losses.

Cloud Services' Shortcomings

Cloud-based file sharing services like SharePoint and Dropbox struggle with large CAD file handling, real-time collaboration features, and ensuring data security, falling short of the specialized needs of CAD collaboration.

Specialized Platforms Limitations

Even CAD-focused solutions like AutoCAD Cloud can be prohibitively expensive and lack the versatility needed for comprehensive project management, including efficient support for non-CAD files.

File Locking and Version Control

Competing solutions often lack robust file locking and version control mechanisms, critical for maintaining data integrity and operational efficiency in collaborative CAD environments.

Cloud Drive Mapping

Drive mapping is an important feature for online file access. End users can easily drag and drop files and folders from a set of mapped drives over the Internet without a VPN connection.

Global File Locking

File locking is a vital feature for online file access and team collaboration to avoid conflicts. End users need to control global concurrent online file access by using file locking to maintain consistency.

Permission Control

Dropbox and Google Drive don't have the same level of centralized control as a file server. You might miss the NTFS permissions and the ability to know where your data is, who has access to it and what they're doing with it.

Frequently Asked Questions: All You Need to Know

How does CentreStack ensure the security and integrity of CAD files?

CentreStack ensures data security through advanced file locking, permission controls, and integration with Active Directory, maintaining data sovereignty and security.

Can CentreStack handle large AutoCAD files for remote collaboration?

Yes, CentreStack is designed to support large file types like AutoCAD, providing efficient and secure remote access and collaboration, with features like file locking and version control.

How does the solution handle remote access to files without VPN?

The solution cloudifies existing on-premises file servers, allowing users to access content from anywhere in the world as long as they have internet access. It uses HTTPS for secure, VPN-less access, ensuring data security and eliminating VPN-related issues.

Does CentreStack offer version control and protection against accidental deletions or ransomware attacks?

Yes, full versioning is available, allowing you to define your own retention policy and versions on each folder. This feature provides protection from accidental deletions and ransomware or malware attacks by enabling you to restore to a previous version right before the attack.

Can multiple users work simultaneously on the same DWG file?

Yes, but with limitations. If the file locking feature is enabled, it will prevent multiple users from editing the same file at the same time to avoid conflicts. However, if the application used to access the file supports collaborative work without file locking, then simultaneous editing might be possible.

Is there a way to track user activities, such as file access and modifications?

Yes, you can generate a full report on all employees in the company, capturing everything they are doing, where they are logging in from, what time they are logging in, and their IP address. This feature is useful for monitoring and auditing purposes.

Can external sharing be disabled for confidential content?

Yes, if there are any confidential content folders which you don't want employees to be sharing with anyone outside the organization, you can disable external sharing altogether.

What is the difference between the hosted service and on-prem solution in terms of cost?

The hosted service is approximately $15 per user per month, which includes AWS S3 cloud storage, ensuring data is replicated in the cloud for redundancy. The on-prem solution is around $7 per user per month, requiring additional infrastructure setup but potentially offering more control over data.
