SWPDM In-the-Cloud – How-to and Benchmarks using AWS, Vault Replication, and MSSQL Replication


This information will be used on the event website and mobile application:  Receive step-by-step instructions on setting up SWPDM using AWS instances while avoiding dreaded Perceived Performance Issues. Review system architecture diagrams for multiple Local and Cloud configurations; justify costs of regional Vault Replication and MS-SQL Clusters for Database Replication by seeing performance benchmarks from an actual implementation using On-Demand Amazon Cloud services sharing a single SWPDM Vault between India, California, and New York!

I will convince the Non-Fortune-500 SWPDM users that Vault Database Replication is not unattainable and provides meaningful benefits. At the end of the SWW2017 Breakout session on this subject, the Q&A was dominated by people upset or disappointed by the hurdle of buying $50K of Microsoft SQL Enterprise licenses to use this feature. Through my presentation, I will show them that the costs can be mitigated and the benefits are worthwhile! This presentation will be split in two parts: First, I will provide step-by-step instructions for setting up SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional Vault Database Replication. This demonstration will include extra steps of using Cloud (Amazon Web Services) resources: not all SWPDM users are Enterprise-users; users want to know that they can “rent” a Cloud server in India without a huge up-front expense, reducing their time and money cost by 2x or 5x or 10x! Second, I will provide benchmarks demonstrating How Much Awesome the Vault Database Replication feature is for the growing number of cross-country collaborating companies. I will share my first-hand experience and results from implementing this feature, including the amount of praise and positive-reception I received at my company. They will understand the difference between “Have” and “Have-not” and realize how valuable this feature is. I will motivate them to go home, buy PDM Professional licenses, and implement this feature released by SOLIDWORKS last year!


Audience Benefits:

  • Reduce your setup-time by copying our implementation
  • Manage your infrastructure costs by utilizing Amazon AWS RDS
  • Justify your implementation with real-life examples showing performance gains and productivity benefits
  • Become the PDM Hero to your multi-region SOLIDWORKS users!
