DriveWorks Hosting Partner, EpiGrid, Host DriveWorks Configurations in the Cloud
Epigrid is a comprehensive information systems service provider with a passion for supplying technology solutions for engineering industries. Our focus is on engineering software implementation and management, data management systems, and design optimization technology.
EpiGrid joined the DriveWorks Partner Program in May 2015 as a Hosting Partner. Our solution for DriveWorks gives customers a new advantage in the marketplace and the ability to adapt to new technologies and competitors. Recently we've been working with DriveWorks customer Oiles America Coproration.
Hosting DriveWorks for Oiles America Corporation
EpiGrid hosts and supports Oiles America Corporation's entire engineering IT compute environment in the Cloud. This includes DriveWorks, CAD, and PDM. The services that we provide for Oiles include:
- Desktop virtualization (VDI)
- Network architecture optimization and development
- System administration and consultation
Evolving the Hosting Environment
Initially Oiles selected EpiGrid to host DriveWorks and PDM in the Cloud with a dedicated server environment. Due to the hosted nature of the environment, Oiles have been able to leverage our other resources to steadily build out the system using various service providers.
This meant that Oiles were able to overcome internal resource constraints and schedule requirements with an environment that is easily and economically scaled.
Applying Continued Training and DriveWorks Knowledge
Aside from hosting, we also provided managed services, which means we have specific expertise for each application we support. Working with Oiles, we understand their workflows and because we understand DriveWorks too, we can provide a great service.
DriveWorks' annual technical training event (DriveWorks World) was amazing. It was very beneficial and we had the opportunity to meet a lot of DriveWorks customers, including CAD Engineer Ray McDaniel from Oiles America Corporation.
We find the kind of environment that DriveWorks World provides very interesting. The architecture of the DriveWorks product line lends itself very well to the Cloud hosted, managed service approach that EpiGrid offers, so we were pleased to be involved.
