This is the third post in our series on private vs public Cloud. We started with an overview and then delved into a comparison of pricing last week. Today we will look at the security and compliance that our private Cloud solutions for SOLIDWORKS Cloud offer. While we can’t speak for what kind of security every public Cloud solution offers, I think it’s safe to assume we won’t be beaten in this regard.

One of the most important aspects of a Cloud-hosted solution like SOLIDWORKS Cloud is the necessity for it to be in compliance with any governing agency that has final approval of a given design. We strive to deliver a system that meets any compliance standard imposed on your organization.

Below are some key points that speak to the reliability and compliance of our Cloud-hosted solutions:

  • UPS POWER REDUNDANCY – N+1, ISO-redundant configuration, Fifteen minutes of runtime at full load, concurrently maintainable
  • 2NGENERATOR POWER CAPACITY – 9,400 (kW)Generator
