Architecture, Engineering & Construction
We offer a unique architecture and engineering solution that keeps your workflow hassle-free. Recognizing that you need a customized workflow that will provide you with the benefits of cloud technology without the latency, the Northwinds CompleteCloud solution gives you the best of both worlds..
Complex Applications (AutoCAD, BIM, Revit, Bluebeam):
Most cloud solutions don’t take into consideration the inherent issues with storing large and complex CAD files in the cloud. You need to have your data backed up, but simply storing them on a server doesn’t cut it. Even working on these graphics-intensive files with the most up-to-date virtualization software still proves to be too slow and choppy to work remotely.
We host these files in our data center, giving you all the benefits of cloud technology, AND we also store your project files locally so that you can work efficiently without experiencing any latency issues. We then perform a file synchronization behind the scenes to back up your files every time you press the save button. This method creates an optimal workflow with no interruptions, yet allows you access to files from anywhere in the world, and includes a safe and reliable back-up system.
Architecture and engineering files take up a lot of space. As you move through your design process, the storage demands continue to increase. You need to retain access to your original work and revisions while continuing to develop new designs, saving revisions, backups and updates along the way. We don’t think these storage demands should present an added cost or inconvenience to you.
We provide you unlimited storage space in our redundant data centers. Never worry about increasing storage demands, as we will automatically provide additional storage space as your work demands. All at no additional charge.
As an Architect or Engineer working on complex and challenging projects, teamwork is pivotal. Architectural and Engineering design is a collaborative process that requires input and modification in a timely manner. In this day and age, we don’t believe that technical limitations should impede the collaborative process. You need the ability to share files quickly and easily, both internally and with clients.
Our Northwinds CompleteCloud solution provides a single centralized location for collaboration. As all your files are stored in a local data cache at all your locations, you can grant coworkers and clients the same easy access to your files that you have – just as fluidly, and just as quickly. Imagine completing a design, saving it and messaging your project manager to open it. The file can be viewed, edited and sent back within seconds.
