“Most people associate Cloud Computing with online services such as Data Storage, Software Virtualization or Software as a Service (SaaS). Potentially, we could accomplish much more with the Cloud but we need to look beyond basic Cloud Services for that,” said Ákos Pfemeter, Vice President of Marketing at GRAPHISOFT. “It may not be part of the common understanding today, but we strongly believe that Cloud Computing is most disruptive to the way people collaborate. GRAPHISOFT’s upcoming BIMcloud Solution will leverage this specifically for the AEC industry by allowing firms of any size to implement fully-integrated BIM collaboration workflows both in public and private cloud environments…”

GRAPHISOFT BIMcloud

GRAPHISOFT’s BIMcloud® is a full-fledged BIM collaboration platform allowing teams of any size to collaborate on native BIM data in real-time. GRAPHISOFT’s patented Delta-Server™ technology, combined with cutting-edge cloud-server architecture, provides the essential features of a world-class BIM collaboration environment:

REAL-TIME ➝ Collaboration is best performed through real-time connection between parties. Thanks to GRAPHISOFT’s patented Delta-Server technology, real-time collaboration on complex Building Information Models is possible regardless of the size or location of the collaborating team. Cloud-based system architecture guarantees simultaneous access to collaborative BIM projects 24/7 for any number of endpoints from any location in the world equipped with a standard Internet connection.

ROBUST ➝ GRAPHISOFT’s BIMcloud Solution offers built-in conflict resolution, which means “server-locks” are completely unknown phenomena for its users. In addition, extremely high network tolerance makes even long distance access possible on standard Internet lines. Support for the secure HTTPS protocol and advanced backup and version rollback options provide your BIM data – the most valuable Intellectual Property asset related to any construction project – with unprecedented data safety.

FLEXIBLE ➝ GRAPHISOFT’s BIMcloud Solution is not demanding on hardware or software. The same system can easily be deployed both in any public or private cloud setups. Connection between client computers running the BIM applications and server computers providing the collaboration platform in the cloud requires no special hardware or additional software: a simple Internet connection using standard HTTP protocol is the only requirement for real-time collaboration between virtually any locations in the world. For BIMcloud Servers, standard desktop configurations should suffice, while the BIM Cloud Manager is accessible in its full functionality from any mobile device.

SCALABLE ➝ The Cloud’s most important advantage to real-time BIM collaboration is its capability to scale server resources. With the GRAPHISOFT BIMcloud, the project team does not need to stop working while the BIMcloud Server’s resources such as processors or memory size are increased. Another advantage is the system’s horizontal scaling with assigning new BIMcloud Servers on demand as the number of projects grows in the cloud.

INTEGRATED ➝ GRAPHISOFT’s BIMcloud Solution is fully prepared for integration into large enterprises’ IT infrastructure. Dynamic Active Directory integration through LDAP protocol allows users to use their domain username/password combo to access their BIM projects in the cloud as well. Multi-tier user access and role management ensures that the BIMcloud can easily be adjusted to any organizational setup in any large enterprise environment. The BIMcloud’s Mobile integration allows external team members to participate in the BIM workflow using their mobile devices as well.

GRAPHISOFT’s BIMcloud Solution goes far beyond basic cloud services offerings available on the market today. It is an all-round cloud-based collaboration solution providing the complete software layer necessary for deployment on premises as a private cloud solution or in the public cloud as a cloud service. Thanks to its unique set of features, it is the only cloud solution that offers a true model-based BIM collaboration environment for companies and projects of any size. With the help of its mobile integration through the cloud, all stakeholders of the design-build process can actively participate in the collaborative work. The GRAPHISOFT BIMcloud is by design suited for even the most stringent enterprise level workflow and security requirements to provide a suitable solution for the collaboration problem of companies where collaboration is a critical part of conducting everyday business. Its private cloud setup option enables companies working on projects with extended security requirements to keep their data on premise and entirely under control, offering the benefits and flexibility of the cloud to all AEC projects without exception.

"This is the first time GRAPHISOFT will launch a worldwide rollout of a new product line in Japan," said Bence Kovács, Vice President of Asia, GRAPHISOFT. “This clearly shows the impressive progress our large Japanese customers have made in their BIM implementation in recent years. It also demonstrates our strategic focus on South-East Asia, which we believe is one of GRAPHISOFT’s most promising growth areas in the coming years,” he added.

The GRAPHISOFT BIMcloud® was released in Japan on March 25, and will be rolled out worldwide together with ArchiCAD 18 in Q2, 2014. Stay tuned for GRAPHISOFT BIMcloud news by visiting  http://www.graphisoft.com/bimcloud/.
