Local Caching Meets 3D Rendering: A Breakthrough for Remote Work

The Challenge: Remote Work and 3D Rendering Don’t Mix Well - Or Do They? Meet Alex, a systems administrator with a dilemma. His team is scattered across Germany and the U.S. and relies on 3D rendering software like AutoCAD for various projects. With the primary file server located in the U.S. and work done remotely, latency has become a crippling problem that makes smooth operation nearly impossible. The Technical Dead-ends: Synchronization, VDI, and Why They Failed Faced with the challenges of working remotely, Alex initially turned to synchronization tools to bring files closer to his team in Germany. However, the generic sync tools caused more problems than solutions, creating file duplications and conflicts when multiple users accessed the same files. In addition, these off-the-shelf syncing tools lacked important file-locking features, making maintaining file consistency for group collaboration difficult. Alex then investigated Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) as an alternati
