Autodesk Vault File Server 2014 Released!

Autodesk Vault File Server 2014 Released!

The Autodesk Vault File Server 2014 (AVFS) has been released to the subscription center.

The Autodesk Vault File Server 2014 provides support for distributed teams by enabling remote locations.

This is a smaller and simpler deployment configuration than the full replication configuration with fast client access to remote meta-data and to local files.

Notes:

  • The Autodesk Vault File Server does not require database replication.
  • Autodesk Vault File Server 2014 connects only to Autodesk Vault Professional Server 2014 SP 1.
  • Download and install the Autodesk Vault Professional Server 2014 Service Pack 1 file at: Autodesk Vault Services & Support.
  • Autodesk Vault File Server 2014 cannot be installed on the same machine in which Autodesk Vault Professional Server 2014 is installed.
  • After you are done installing the Autodesk Vault File Server, you must configure your server settings before you can begin using the Vault File Server. See the “Configure the Vault File Server” section below for instructions.

The top image shows the previous multi-site configuration which include 2 installations of the Autodesk Vault Data Management Server (ADMS) console at both sites A & B.

The bottom image shows the new Autodesk Vault File Server configuration.  This is still file store replication but without the ADMS console. 

AVFS includes its own server console for managing file store tasks and replication.

Advantages:

  •       Faster client performance for meta-data
  •       Less network traffic (less DB calls)
  •       Smaller deployment
  •       Simplified configuration
  •       No change to the end user workflow, just performance improvements
