ProjectWise on different sites.

Hi we are using projectwise and we have offices in different countries. Our team in Australia would like to use our team in Philippines to work on the project but we are having a hard time loading a file. Please read below for the issue our team has found. Australia is where the main server of ProjectWise.

Opening a typical structural model (first load) took more than 20 minutes to open. Obviously second-loads were much faster – but it bogged down once a different model was opened, as it used a different set of references. There are many hundreds of models and thousands of referenced files on this project.

The problem we face is it’s tough to put an exact scientific number on the impact of running live via Project Wise (it will depend on the model and its dependencies), but the feeling we have from what we’ve seen is it will be prohibitively slow. 

Unfortunately it is not an option to “pre-populate” the remote caches, as the system needs to populate itself (integration server to cache server) and we cannot do it by simply “bringing files up on a hard disk.” Pre-population has to be done over the data links, and the amount of data we have is too large to pre-populate via our existing links. I also have concerns that even with a pre-populated cache we’d still have problems due to the rapid growth and high number of changes that are occurring on this project.
