WASHINGTON, May 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Morro Data, an innovative provider of high performance global file services, showcases the solution of Remote Team Collaboration for Revit for the AEC industry (Architecture Engineering Construction) here at the ACEC Annual Conference 2019 (booth #310). The solution enables design teams in multiple locations to collaborate with each other with high performance and efficiency.

Morro Data CloudNAS extends the functionality of the traditional enterprise NAS to multisite.  CloudNAS modernizes enterprise file sharing with a scalable hybrid cloud architecture. Connected through a global file system, CloudNAS gateways are deployed on premises to store files in the cloud and sync among multiple sites while presenting to users a fast, secure, and familiar NAS interface. Applications for CloudNAS include multi-site sync, cloud backup and archive for files and VM, and design collaboration. RTC for Revit is an advanced feature of CloudNAS.

“Virtual team is a reality for AEC companies, particularly those with multiple locations,” said Paul Tien, founder and CEO of Morro Data. “With the added RTC feature, the CloudNAS hybrid-cloud solution addresses the remote collaboration needs of Revit designers. The availability of RTC for Revit further pushes forward our vision of enabling ‘Global Data at LAN Speed’ for businesses of all industries and sizes.”

RTC for Revit enables a virtual Revit team to work on the same project as if on a local network. Revit users can perform Sync-with-Central and Reload Latest operations across remote sites and CloudNAS handles the necessary file syncing and locking at the element level through its global file system. The project files are safely stored in the cloud and cached to the local CacheDrive gateways for performance.

 “The most unique aspect about Morro Data’s CloudNAS RTC for Revit is its ease-of-use for such high-value functions.” said Robert Marsh, Director of IT at Wright-Pierce. “Our remote teams need to be able to work together in real time among our eight locations and CloudNAS allows us to all feel like we are working in the same office. The deployment and management is simple and intuitive. We are truly impressed with the collaboration functionality and performance that Morro Data’s CloudNAS provides our team.”
