Having teams distributed across the world, implementing a single PLM system can be challenging. One of the biggest concerns is the response time in locations that are geographically located far from the main application server. Much of this concern relates to uploading & downloading large CAD files. Aras provides the ability to set up multiple vaults that can be synchronized with custom rules between them to copy the files in any fashion that might be needed. This presentation covers the architecture of the vaults server system and presents some examples of replication rules. The presentation also touches upon Nidec’s attempt to have a single, global instance, while complying with ITAR restrictions.
