Thank you for following along thus far as we dig deep into the differences between Private vs. Public Cloud. The final and most important part of the puzzle for EpiGrid when considering Public Vs. Private Cloud is the ability for its partners, like DesignPoint, to manage not only the Cloud-host, but also the PDM Vault. With a Private Cloud, the vault is seamlessly deployed AND managed after the fact. Since EpiGrid owns the hardware and licensing at the host, instead of carving out virtual servers from a conglomeration of servers, we are able to manage the solution top to bottom, all while reducing the amount of time your design team spends on IT impediments.
AWS, Azure, and any other option we’ve come across suffer from one important strike: they are application-agnostic, meaning that each platform may work for CAD, but it’s not tailored specifically for CAD. EpiGrid, like DesignPoint, was started by engineers, for engineers. They leverage the latest Cloud technology to work with the highly complex tools of the trade. You don’t want to spend your time developing a platform for your own CAD data management and distribution, so EpiGrid has gone ahead and done it for you.
It’s safe to say, that there really is no question on whether you should go private or public for your cloud solutions. Private hosting makes more sense from a cost, security, and management standpoint. The real question is…when are you ready to talk? Give us a shout, and we’d be more than happy to support and serve you throughout this process.
