Cloud Storage for AEC

Many within the AEC (architecture, engineering, and construction) industries use Building Information Modeling (BIM) to help plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure from concept through completion. Typically, everyone involved has access to the integrated database, improving collaboration, productivity, and insight, while also being extremely resource intensive, which requires a highly available infrastructure.

Since the 1970’s, the AEC industry has been using shared servers in much the same way the cloud is used today, yet, modern cloud technology can still help improve collaboration and project visibility.

WHAT GREEN HOUSE DATA CAN DO FOR YOU

DON’T THROW IT OUT, STORE IT IN THE CLOUD

If your BIM applications are not linked to the cloud, you can run into a major lack of storage space. With data stored on personal computers, disk storage fills up quickly, requiring decisions to be made as to what can stay and what needs to go. Cloud-based object storage can retain every version of the model’s development, instead of merely the final draft.

Use the cloud to store analysis data, issue tracking reports and emails, scan existing buildings, and for real-time occupancy data. Employees throughout your company can access BIM software and data on a multitude of devices from anywhere with no risk to security. If you have an employee who needs to be on-site, they can access the information they need from either their laptop or mobile device, increasing efficiency and productivity.

Unlocking big data in the cloud lets you analyze and uncover hidden trends you might not know about. With all of your models stored in one easily accessible location, you are able to analyze an entire collection of models, see how they develop over time, and set up an alert system for when a model drifts outside of its normal boundaries.
