Fremont, CA: U.S CAD, a Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions consultant and Autodesk Platinum Partner, has announced its partnership with Panzura, a leading provider of cloud-based global file systems to empower AEC clients with centralized data storage and streamlined cross-site project collaboration. Panzura’s technology will enhance collaboration by up to 98percent between AEC teams regardless of geographic constrains. Further, it also resolves the "file open" problem related to applications like Autodesk Revit and Civil 3D and also eliminates the versioning problem faced by AEC firms.

The partnership will address the rising demands of global AEC organizations, including the need for seamless cross-site collaboration with a simple-to-use architecture that is scalable across locations, capacity, and users. "U.S. CAD is dedicated to helping our clients achieve more by providing best-in-class services and solutions. Our partnership with Panzura will give our clients access to a sophisticated, cloud-based data management solution that will help manage latency and address networking, security, automation, and file system challenges," states Jeff Rachel, Vice President, U.S. CAD.

The customers will now be able to consolidate IT server, storage and networking infrastructure across sites while reducing their storage requirements up to 90 percent. "AEC firms now work on national or global projects, and often have multiple offices, but it's challenging to collaborate across sites. Their IT departments want to take advantage of the economics of cloud storage and cloud compute, but need a secure solution that also makes users in different offices feel like they're next to each other," said Flavio Santoni, Chief Revenue Officer of Panzura. "Our unique technology and offerings enable customers to truly take advantage of the benefits and scale of the cloud, without IT having to manage a separate infrastructure," he adds

Headquartered in Newport Beach, CA, U.S. CAD is an AEC industry consultant and Autodesk Certified Platinum Partner with offices in California, Hawaii, Arizona, Nevada, and Nebraska. U.S.

Panzura provides cloud-integrated local NAS capabilities to globally-distributed enterprises, allowing storage capacity to be centrally located, managed, and protected.
